Analysis and Explanation

Futurism was given its live debut at Reading Festival 2000 alongside Bliss, though unlike Bliss, Futurism was not performed at any further known gigs throughout 2000. It is possible that it was performed a second time at a date nearby that of Reading Festival with an unknown setlist, however this cannot be confirmed. Futurism would not be performed at all throughout the Origin of Symmetry tour, only appearing in the form of a by-request riff at the BBC Re:Covered broadcast in 2002, though a recording is unavailable. It would be thirteen years before Futurism would be performed for a second time. Matt was once quoted saying that it didn't make the album because it was a hard song to perform live.

Since its return at the Tokyo Zepp 2013 gig, Futurism has made four further appearances. Though the song has been performed an incredibly few amount of times, it seems Muse are keen to play it live whenever given the opportunity to place rarities into the setlist. It is likely we will see many performances in the future at other "rarity gigs" like Tokyo Zepp 2013, the Psycho UK Tour and Montreux Jazz Festival 2016. Futurism was a setlist candidate at the 2018 Paris Cigale show though the fans voted to hear Fury performed live instead, and thus Fury was performed despite Futurism being a far rarer song live.

The song is still played partially in the form of the 'Houston Jam' during the Simulation Theory World Tour.
