Fresh from picking up the Q Award for Inspiration earlier in the week, the band rattled through hits from all five albums, including debut 1992 single 'The Drowners' and its B-side 'My Insatiable One.'
The 350-strong capacity crowd lapped up frontman Brett Anderson's frequent forays into the audience, something unlikely to occur at Suede's upcoming O2 Arena concert on Dec. 7.
Ploughing through nearly two-hour set, Anderson barely paused for breath -- only really speaking after 'Metal Mickey' to ask fans for requests -- before declaring next track 'Wild Ones' as "the best one" and to simply say that the show had "been a nice little gig, we'll see you in December."
Suede tentatively reformed after seven years -- with Richard Oakes replacing original guitarist Bernard Butler -- in March to perform a concert for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Picking up their Q Award earlier in the week, Anderson admitted, 'I've really enjoyed it [the reunion]. I don't know how long we will be together for. It's not necessarily a permanent thing, I don't think.
"It's a bit on the edge and we don't really know what will be happening about it beyond the end of this year."
Suede's full Bush Hall setlist was:
'This Hollywood Life'
'Killing of a Flashboy'
'My Insatiable One'
'Can't Get Enough'
'Everything Will Flow'
'To the Birds'
