Huxley’s Neue Welt in Berlin was hosting an energetic best of The Wombats show, that offered everything a Wombats fan can ask for.
As the warm up, Vistas started the evening, also playing their first ever show in Berlin. With their short set, they managed to give the audience a small taste of the level of energy that was about to follow.

The Wombats’ set was filled with songs from their early albums, like The Wombats Proudly Present This Modern Glitch with songs like “Jump Into the Fog“, over to all-time fan favorites like “Lemon To A Knife Fight“ or “Let’s Dance to Joy Division“, that kept the energy at a high level throughout the whole evening.
In addition to their best of hits The Wombats, of course, also played songs from their most recent album Fix Yourself, Not the World. Songs like “If You Ever Leave, I’m Coming with You“ or “Worry“ harmonized perfectly with the older songs, because although they evolved their selfs over the years, they still stay true to their typical sound.
Their set already started off strong with “Moving to New York“ as one of their first songs, followed up by a surprise appearance of a trumpet playing wombat. With a fully packed venue and one hit after another calling for sing alongs and jumping around, the sweaty and energetic crowd managed to keep up their pace and energy.

With the exception of a few talk and breather breaks by Matthew Murphy, Tord Øverland Knudsen and Dan Haggis, The Wombats have precisely followed through with their set. After “closing“ their set with “Greek Tragedy“ a highlight of an encore followed. Demanding every last bit of power from the crowd, the show ended with “Let’s Dance to Joy Division“ and “Turn“ which were also joined not by one but multiple wombats for the grand finale of the show.
