The surviving members of The Cars — singer/keyboardist Ric Ocasek, guitarist Elliot Easton, drummer David Robinson and keyboardist Greg Hawkes, who also is filling in on bass for the late Benjamin Orr — kicked off their reunion tour in Seattle last night, performing their first concert in nearly a quarter century.

You can check out the full setlist below, courtesy of Seattle Weekly. The band played 19 songs, including a few from their just-released comeback album Move Like This, plus classics such as “Good Times Roll, “Just What I Needed,” “Let’s Go” and “You Might Think” — and two takes of “Moving in Stereo,” after flubbing the first try.

Fan-shot video’s starting to trickle in from Seattle’s Showbox theater, and it’s a bit rough. But above, you can watch the band perform “Just What I Needed,” and below, you can see clips of “Moving in Stereo” (the second try), “My Best Friend’s Girl,” “Touch and Go” and “Good Times Roll.” We’ll post more as it surfaces on YouTube.

And if you were at the show, please let us know how it was in the comments below. The tour resumes Thursday in Los Angeles. You can see full dates here, and, if you haven’t heard it yet, you can stream Move Like This in its entirety right here.
