Analysis and Explanation

Animals is a song performed somewhat often by the band since its introduction on The 2nd Law Tour. Animals was one of the most performed songs during 2012, appearing at most gigs throughout the year. It was routinely performed until March 2013 when Animals was usually performed at every other night. The Unsustainable Tour brought Animals back into a permanent setlist position, though this would not last long as it was only played eight times following the end of The Unsustainable Tour. For this tour, a banker actor would come onto the stage towards the end of the songs holding large amounts of "Musos" (the band's fictional currency used on the tour), who would suffer some sort of trauma and collapse dead on the stage during the outro. Animals was one of the very few songs from The 2nd Law to be performed in 2014.

For the Drones Tour, Animals reappeared for ten performances throughout 2015 before being dropped for the rest of the tour. It hasn't made an appearance since then, though it was a setlist option at the 2017 Shepherd's Bush Empire by request gig, which indicates the band haven't ruled out playing the song live.
