Analysis and Explanation
Falling Away With You is well known for being the oldest song appearing in an album without being performed. At least in its full version.
Indeed, it was performed a couple of times, at Reading and Leeds festivals in 2002, but only instrumentally in its demo form, as an intro to Eternally Missed. These aren't included as official performances, but it's the nearest thing to Falling Away With You being played live.
The riff was played as an intro to Starlight on the São Paulo, Brazil gig in 2008 which probably hints a preparation for a possible live performance. However, in 2012, being asked on Twitter whether they will ever play the song live, Bellamy replied that he was "not sure". Despite this, a portion of the song was played briefly at a soundcheck on September 9th, 2013 as an instrumental piano interlude to Citizen Erased. This being the other closest performance of this song.
Few seconds of the intro were once again played at the Simulation Theory iHeartRadio release party.
The band apparently have not given up on performing the song as it was a setlist option for the 2017 Shepherds Bush Empire show.
