This page contains a list of all known performances of Prelude.

Analysis and Explanation

It is played as an intro before songs. On the album it precedes Survival, however it precedes Starlight when played live. It was skipped during The 2nd Law tour before making a surprise debut on the last date of the Drones World Tour South American leg.

It has been played live at every gig since the first date of the Drones World Tour North American tour started. It is unknown why it was not attempted during The 2nd Law tour, making its return to setlists even more strange. Dom plays the drums and cymbals during this song, unlike other tapes such as Drones and JFK, in which the band do not/rarely play any instruments during. When the 360 Tour was over, Prelude was dropped from setlists instead of being performed at the remaining festival dates. In 2017, it made a return for the 3 UK festivals, however it wasn't played outside of those 3 shows.

It made another return for the Simulation Theory World Tour, preceding Starlight at almost every 2019 gig.
