Analysis and Explanation

Falling Down was one of the last songs on Showbiz to make its live debut, making no known appearances before 1999. Performed for just two years, Falling Down was rather common in both 1999 and 2000 before it was dropped from setlists. Falling Down was often very long, over five minutes in length normally, and the song wasn't huge with fans at the time. It was likely not too much of a loss for the band to stop performing Falling Down. Still, it was performed often enough that there are several pro-shots available today.

A fan on Twitter asked the band if they would ever perform Falling Away With You in 2012, to which someone responded that they may try out Falling Down again. Shockingly, the band lived up to expectations, as they would later repeat in 2016 with Take a Bow, and performed Falling Down (reworked for the piano) on many 2012 European dates. Possibly feeling that Falling Down likely did not have much of an appeal outside of Europe, Falling Down was again dropped before the next year arrived. Though it has not been performed since 2012, the band apparently have not given up on performing the song as it was a setlist option for the 2017 Shepherds Bush Empire show.
