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 could have been 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 made its live debut. Some interludes knowns as STT Interstitial 1 and STT Interstitial 2 also were debuted.

The gospel version of Dig Down 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). Houston Jam is a drum & bass jam composed of Futurism and Unnatural Selection riffs and Micro Cuts outro. Psycho and Drill Sergeant featured a more distorted/robotic voice than during previous tour.Uprising was played with an extended intro while Matt introduced the band, including Morgan. Pray is a new song, coming out on april 26th, made for Game of Thrones. It was played on tape with Chris and Dom on big drums on each side of the stage. Take a Bow was played half step down. The introduction for Supermassive Black Hole is 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.

There were lots of performers on stage during the show : dancers falling/hanging from ceiling during Dig Down and Break It to Me, 'drummers' during Uprising and other songs, trumpeters during Algorithm (Alternate Reality Version) and Pressure and additionnal performers during Algorithm (with skeleton robots), Thought Contagion (zombies) and Propaganda (women with CO2 guns). A giant robot/skeleton named Murph was moving behind the band during the Metal Medley.

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.
