Analysis and Explanation

Butterflies & Hurricanes was performed incredibly often during the Absolution and Black Holes & Revelations tours, though it originally debuted in the form of a piano jam in a 2000 soundcheck. Matt began to work on the piano solo well before the song itself was written, soundchecking it at various 2001 shows before performing it live as an intro to Screenager on the 2002 tour. This early version of the piano solo was performed after a short Rachmaninoff jam and was one of many Absolution teases hidden throughout 2002 concerts, the first of which being at the Moscow Stunt Festival concert on May 26th, 2002.

The song made its debut in full at the second show of the Absolution tour (the first of which being a three-song CD:UK TV performance) in Amsterdam. After this, Butterflies & Hurricanes made an appearance at nearly every show of the Absolution tour. Starting with Glastonbury Festival 2004, a short jam was performed before the song, known today as the "Glastonbury Jam". This short instrumental was never adapted into a song and was performed from Glastonbury Festival until the end of the Summer 2004 Festival Tour with Vieilles Charrues Festival on July 25th, 2004.

After 2005, the band continued to perform Butterflies & Hurricanes as a regular spot on the setlist throughout the entire three-year tour. There were a handful of exceptions where the song was skipped, though it could be expected at nearly every show until 2009. The Resistance tour brought Butterflies & Hurricanes into rarity status, from which it has never escaped. The only time the song was performed at all in 2009 was at the very last stop of the European leg of the tour, where it made its first and, alongside the January 2010 show in Seoul, was the only appearance on tour until the June 2010 show in Paris. After this show, again, it would be three months before the song was performed again.

Though brought back into live setlists fairly often, there is no likely guarantee of hearing this song in concert. When performed again it is often brought back for a few performances, though never for long. When voted to be performed at the 2017 Shepherds Bush Empire concert, Muse enjoyed doing the song so much that they added into rotation for the September 2017 tour, earning the song its first pro-shot recordings in many years. Butterflies & Hurricanes was then listed as a setlist option for the 2018 Paris Cigale show, though fans voted to hear Citizen Erased instead.
