MOUNTAIN VIEW — Incubus and Jimmy Eat World have teamed up for a short summer tour covering major cities in the U.S. Last night it was the only Bay Area’s date, at the Shoreline Amphitheatre.

Incubus is touring in support of its new album, 8, released last April. The new material made up about a quarter of the nearly two-hours-long set and was interspersed with fan favorites like “Drive,” Pardon Me,” “Dig,” “Anna Molly” and “Aqueous Transmission,” which closed the show. The SoCal rock band also covered Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here.” With the U.S. leg of the tour nearly complete, Incubus will next embark on a trek through South America, which includes an appearance at Rock in Rio.

Jimmy Eat World saved “Sweetness” and “The Middle,” its biggest hits, for last in their 14-song set. Where the headliners were grungier and rougher around the edges, Jimmy Eat World was more melodic, bordering on pop-punk. The rest of the set consisted of older material like “Hear You Me” and “Bleed American”—off 2011’s Bleed American— and three tracks from the Arizona band’s latest, 2016’s Integrity Blues.

Dynamic Nashville band Judah and The Lion opened the show, warming up the early arrivers with songs from its 2016 album, Folk Hop N’ Roll, as well as covers of T-Pain’s “Booty Wurk (One Cheek At a Time)” and the Killers’ “Mr. Brightside.” The shortened set concluded with “Rich Kids” and “Take It All Back 2.0.” During the smash crossover hit, frontman Judah Akers raced up the amphitheatre aisles and into the general admission lawn at the top, high-fiving fans along the way.
