This page contains a list of all known performances of Isolated System.

Analysis and Explanation

Isolated System is performed on a tape, (except for some drum fills played by Dom and not actually by the band), despite featuring piano parts. As such, the band often used it during The 2nd Law Tour during the encore, often as an intro to Uprising, or as an opener to main set that leaded into Supremacy. If the song was played before Uprising, towards the ending of the song, Matt's makes noises on the Kaoss Pad to accompany the depressing end of the music video displayed on the stage screens, the Kaoss Pad noises would be played without stop until the transition into Uprising. Starting with 2013 year in The 2nd Law era, excerpts of Number Stations were played back during the song, and on rare occasions these would be swapped for something else like Vincent Price's voice-over from Thriller during Australian tour leg, or audio excerpts from news broadcasts about the infamous OpenSSL bug called Heartbleed bug in Coachella 2014 performance. Along with the addition of audio excerpts in 2013, you can also hear Morgan Nicholls experiment more and mixing in some random glitch noises.

It made a surprise return for the Drones 360 Tour, albeit in a shortened form, as an intro to The Handler earlier on in setlists. As such, it was performed at every Drones 360 Tour and 2016 festival tour date. During the song, Dom uses his Roland Octopad to make percussion loops instead of playing the normal drums as heard on the album.

It continued to appear in this shortened, more minimalistic, form as an intro to various songs throughout 2017 and some dates of 2018. However, it was dropped at the start of the Simulation Theory World Tour. It's unclear whether or not it will return.
