This page contains a list of all known performances of Escape.

Analysis and Explanation

Escape was performed somewhat often live between 1996 and 1998, making appearances in three out of the four known 1997 setlists as well as the May 1998 setlist known. Sometime after this, however, the song was dropped from live performances. It would be safe to assume that Escape was not performed at every concert from this era.

When revived for the Showbiz tour, the band waited until the 1999 Festival Tour began and performed it rather often until October 1999 when Escape was not seen as often. The following year brought Escape into the setlist again for the first half of January, as well as several gigs thereafter until March 2000. After this, it was only performed once in June and four times in October before being dropped permanently from setlists.

A member of the band revealed that they rehearsed Muscle Museum and Escape at the beginning of The 2nd Law tour but that neither song worked live. As a compromise perhaps, Sunburn, Falling Down and Host were performed live in that same time frame. Aside from those rehearsals, the band has shown no further intentions of bringing Escape back to setlists as it wasn't a voting option for neither the 2017 Shepherd's Bush Empire nor the 2018 La Cigale by-request shows.
