First show of the Simulation Theory World Tour.

Information

Official Store pre-sale started Tuesday 13 November, and general on sale started Friday 16.

The band were soundchecking some songs and doing rehearsals a couple of days before the gig. The songs were The Dark Side, Algorithm (VR version), The Void...amongst others. Stockholm Syndrome was also played.

Knights of Cydonia, Man with a Harmonica included, and Pressure were soundchecked the day before.

Algorithm (Alternate Reality Version), Propaganda, Pray and Houston Jam, a drum & bass jam composed of Futurism, Unnatural Selection and Micro Cuts riffs, made their live debut. Some interludes known as STT Interstitial 1 and STT Interstitial 2 also were debuted, and the Dig Down (Acoustic Gospel Version) was played for the first time outside a promotional gig, with all 3 members on the B-stage (Matt on piano and Chris on acoustic guitar).

Psycho and Drill Sergeant were played with a more distorted/robotic voice rather than the normal sergeant voice. Uprising was played with an extended intro while Matt introduced the band, including Morgan. Take a Bow was played half step down. The Close Encounters intro mimicked the conversation from the film 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind', with Matt playing the riff on the guitar and then synths responding, miming a conversation with the spaceship-shaped stage.

Matt used a new Blue Kaoss guitar during Break It to Me and an acoustic guitar during Propaganda. He did not play the guitar during Mercy, Starlight and Thought Contagion (untill the end of the 2nd chorus). His guitar malfunctionned during Unsustainable.
