By the time American act Third Eye Blind decided to leave the stage, fans of the alt rock band couldn’t have thought of another single they would want to hear them play. After playing a set comprising all their hit singles [from “Crystal Baller” to “Jumper”] from their self titled debut album and sophomore attempt, Blue, the band had stayed on and wooed all their fans with a four-track encore. 

While a majority of the set list comprised 3eb’s early hits, the band also made place for some tracks from their last album, Ursa Major and even previewed a new song from their upcoming fifth album, which is slated to release in 2013. The band, which performed as part of Bacardi Go-Together Mix tour, played a tight set with the Mumbai gig being their first in India with their entire current lineup. Guitarist  Kryz Reid had some visa issues, thereby forcing Jenkins to ask their audio engineer to fill in for Reid for the Bengaluru and Hyderabad gig few days ago.

The set in Mumbai was also the longest that 3eb have played in India. Mid-way through the set, the band cut off “Jumper” abruptly so that drummer Brad Hargreaves could take over the spotlight and have some fun matching electro bass to his drums set. Ten minutes later, the band returned on stage and resumed by playing the extended version of “Jumper.”

The band graciously played every song that the Mumbai audience screamed out for. At about 11.30 pm, fans were far from satiated and inspired the band to play crowd pleasers such as “How’s It Going To Be” and “God Of Wine”. Although Jenkins added that “How’s It Going To Be” was not popular in the US and hence had not featured on his set list in a very long time, the frontman was surprised to find the audience singing along to his 1997 hit. Jenkins, after over an hour of non-stop singing asked the audience in good humor, “Don’t you guys get tired?”only to hear them reply in the negative in unison.
