Pulp ignited the stage with an electrifying live performance in Argentina, unveiling the long-awaited return of ‘Joyriders’ and ‘Bad Cover Version’ after a hiatus of over a decade. The exhilarating event unfolded during their ‘This Is What We Do For An Encore’ tour, with the latest stop landing at the Movistar Arena in Buenos Aires last night (November 23).

Led by the charismatic Jarvis Cocker, the Sheffield band delivered an impressive set that delved into fan favorites from their extensive discography, including iconic tracks like ‘Disco 2000’ and ‘Common People,’ alongside some cherished rarities.

The concert commenced with a powerful rendition of ‘I Spy’, a track from their 1995 classic album ‘Different Class.’ To the crowd’s delight, Pulp surprised everyone by resurrecting ‘Joyriders’, a deep cut from their 1994 ‘His ‘n’ Hers’ album. According to Setlist.FM, this marked the song’s first inclusion in their live repertoire since 2012.
