“What exactly do we do for an encore?”

Confirming the news of this reunion tour, Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker released this statement.

“Three months ago, we asked, ‘What exactly do you do for an encore?’”, he wrote.

“Well… An encore happens when the crowd makes enough noise to bring the band back to the stage. So… We are playing in the UK and Ireland in 2023. Therefore… Come along and make some noise. See you there”. 

Jarvis Cocker had previously confirmed plans for a reunion show earlier this Summer, during a Q&A session for his memoir ‘Good Pop, Bad Pop’.

“It’s a line from ‘This Is Hardcore’… next year Pulp are going to play some concerts!”, he said. More on this from Nova here.
