Analysis and Explanation

City of Delusion was performed sporadically in 2006 with no clear pattern to its performances. This continued in 2007, although with fewer performances. Alongside several other album tracks, City of Delusion made only several appearances and was not played outside of the Black Holes and Revelations Tour. The song was not played between July and October 2006, with the exception being the September 11th gig. For 2006, the band would often substitute the trumpet solo with a guitar solo. This would carry out at a handful of 2007 dates where a trumpet player was unavailable, including Seattle 2007 and the Asian tour. The very earliest performance included Morgan performing the trumpet effect on his keyboard, though this was not replicated at any further performance after October 2006.

It was performed just once in 2008, on the same date the song made its debut in 2006. For whatever reason the band did not play it particularly often, leading to very few pro-shots of this song existing (a similar fate occurred with Exo-Politics, Hoodoo and Assassin). The vocal strain felt by Matt may also be a deterrent from the song reappearing, as well as the complicated instruments (including a solo by Dan the Trumpet Man, or whomever trumpet performer was available at the time of each show). It is unlikely that without a replacement trumpeter, City of Delusion will not return to setlists. Still, there may be hope, as the band have not given up on performing the song live, including it as a setlist option for the Shepherds Bush Empire 2017 by-request show.

In a poll of 500 fans conducted in November 2015, out of a total thirty songs that had not been played since The Resistance era, fans voted City of Delusion as the eighth most requested song to make a return to setlists.[1]
