Analysis and Explanation
Tried out before its eventual release as a b-side, Shrinking Universe was performed live as the band were wrapping up the Showbiz tour and beginning to introduce new material such as Hyper Music and Micro Cuts. It did not make the final cut on the album, though, which is the reason why the song was left off of setlists after the Showbiz tour (the band only performed three b-sides, Agitated, Can't Take My Eyes Off You and Minimum, during the Origin of Symmetry tour).
Shrinking Universe was believed to have been performed thirteen times between October and November 2000, though only eight performances are confirmed today. The remaining five gigs are where Shrinking Universe was believed to have been played but cannot be officially confirmed. With the exception of two Japanese gigs and Livid Festival, Shrinking Universe is believed to have been played at every date in October and November 2000.
The vocals, one of the reasons why this song is rather well-known, are probably the reason the band did not play this live after the 2000 tour.
