The National @ Greek Theatre Berkeley 09.24.18

The National live at Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California

Almost a year after postponing two shows due to wildfire concerns, the National finally returned to the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA. And while it sucked to wait a year to finally see this show, it was worth the wait in many ways. Particularly, the band have been touring behind their seventh album Sleep Well Beast for over a year now, and the road-tested new songs fit in seamlessly with the rest of the band’s live catalog.

One thing that was not cool was the 6pm start time for a Monday night show in the East Bay. But the show was fantastic and there are few better evenings to be spent than a perfect fall night outdoors at the Greek.

Check out photos from their first Berkeley show…
