Matthew Bellamy's assertion that the band hadn't played Micro Cuts for a year was incorrect—the song was played at both nights the previous December during the Earls Court Exhibition Centre performances.[5] Dominic Howard made a mistake, he missed out a strike on the bass drum and hit the snare drum early.[source?] The band were able to recover, though it resulted in Bellamy laughing, to which some of the audience screamed.[source?]


Before Hysteria Bellamy "Hello Buffalo".
After Butterflies & Hurricanes Howard "Thank you".
After Bliss "Thanks... How's it going Buffalo?" [crowd cheer] "Pretty good".
After Plug In Baby Bellamy "Thank you very much, it's been a great pleasure".
Before Micro Cuts "Uh yeah, we haven't played this song for a while... About a year?"*
Before Stockholm Syndrome "Thank you for coming!"
After Execution Commentary riff "Thank you!"

* Micro Cuts had been played four months beforehand, at the Earl's Court Exhibition Centre.[5]


An audio bootleg was made and distributed in FLAC format, which was trans-coded into mp3 format and uploaded to Muselive.com and can be found here[registration needed]. One of only three known audio bootlegs of Assassin in its original iteration.
