Pulp play ‘last ever’ show at Electric Picnic?

Jarvis Cocker hints that Irish festival may have been the end of their reunion

Trending Now

Pulp ended their summer reunion tour at Ireland’s Electric Picnic festival last night (September 4) with Jarvis Cocker hinting that the 90-minute set may have been their last ever gig.

Before launching into set closer ‘Common People’, Cocker declared: “This may be the last time we’re ever all on stage together again.” Earlier in the set the Pulp frontman had told the 30,000-strong crowd in Stradbally, Co Laois, that: “This is the last gig of the tour, so if we start crying or get emotional, you’ll understand.”

However, his last words to the crowd as the band left the stage hinted that the band may yet return, with Cocker saying: “Maybe our paths will cross again.”

Pulp‘s set was similar to their ecstatically received sets at Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds festivals earlier this month, taking in crowd-pleasing hits ‘Mis-Shapes’, ‘Do You Remember The First Time?’ and ‘Common People’.

Throughout, a fired-up Cocker engaged with the crowd, peppering his between-song banter with quotes from Oscar Wilde, in reference to the names of one of the festival’s campsites.
