The House of Love’s Guy Chadwick today played a second “Stay Safe” live set from his home in England, offering fans another 13-song, hour-long set that this time dug deep into the band’s catalog, mostly eschewing better-known songs for fan-favorites requests.
Chadwick said much of the set was comprised of requests made after his first livestreamed performance, on April 4. The set included several songs off The House of Love’s most recent album, 2013’s She Paints Words in Red, and its often-maligned 1993 effort, Audience With the Mind — as well as a cut off his 1998 solo album Lazy Soft and Slow.
Chadwick spoke of having to relearn several songs, and introduced “Ray” — which appears on the 1990 compilation A Spy in the House of Love — as having never been performed live before.
The House of Love had been set to embark on its first North American tour in nearly 30 years on Sunday, but that has been postponed due to the coronavirus and no new dates have yet been announced. But Chadwick did stress, during the live set, that he intends to make good on his plans to tour the U.S.
Below, watch Chadwick’s full solo set as broadcast on Facebook.
