October 21, 2022  |  9 Comments  |  by Axl  |  Noel Hogan

The Puro gave their first ever concert yesterday in São Paulo at Rockambole opening for the band Leela. The Puro playing at 21:30 and Leela at 22:30

This was the only concert planned in Brazil for now. Noel Hogan was on acoustic guitar, Mell Peck on vocals (and sometimes on guitar as well) and a third guy named Binho on keyboards and accordion (!!)

A more or less 55-min show originally planned with 9 songs including a new one (The Cure) and 2 Cranberries covers (Shattered, Zombie) but in fact 10 songs were played due to a real encore not appearing on the setlist sheet. If anyone knows which song was added, please let us know!
EDIT: the 10th song was “Além Dos Meus Olhos”

Attendance was possibly 100-150 people in the venue. Not that bad for a first!

  • SETLIST (thanks to Higor Matheus Santos on Instagram)

The Puro published 2 photos of the show on their socials (Instagram, Facebook)

Many photos and videos appeared on socials posted by the fans.
