Watch Stars perform their seminal album Set Yourself on Fire in its entirety
The highly anticipated set was one of the big highlights of the 2019 CBC Music Festival
One of the most anticipated performances at this year's CBC Music Festival was from Canadian indie-pop veterans Stars. The band, which has been around for almost two decades, celebrated the 15th anniversary of its breakout album, Set Yourself on Fire, by playing it in its entirety.
From the opening moments of "Set Yourself on Fire," complete with the recording of singer Torquil Campbell's father, Douglas, declaring, "When there's nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire," to the jubilant pop choruses of "Ageless Beauty" and "Reunion," the band's performance was everything fans had hoped for and more.
