Analysis and Explanation

Sober was performed very often in 1997 and 1998, appearing in four out of the five known setlists from these years. Sober continued to make semi-occasional appearances throughout 1999 and 2000. At this time Sober appeared at the majority of gigs but was still very often skipped live. The song was popular enough to continue to be performed up until the end of the Showbiz tour, though the band thought the song wasn't good enough to continue playing live for the Origin of Symmetry tour.

After making no appearances throughout 2001, the band brought back Sober for the Origin of Symmetry tour in October/November. Muse considered many songs such as Map of Your Head and Spiral Static to perform live but landed on Sober to bring back. Sober was only performed one further time, though, and neither 2001 performance has an available recording. It is unknown what 2001 Sober sounds like today.

It is highly unlikely that Sober will ever be performed live again.
