    Beck found himself in a unique situation while in Detroit on Saturday night. As Billboard reports, the scheduled opening act, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, canceled just hours before doors were to open at Fox Theatre. Fortunately, Beck found a quality last-minute replacement: himself.

    The acclaimed singer-songwriter kicked off his show with a 10-song, 40-minute set “focused on quieter and more melodic material.” After a short intermission, he and his band then returned for a second, 16-song electric set featuring both greatest hits (“Devil’s Haircut”, “Where It’s At”) and rarities (“Get Real Paid”).
