Analysis and Explanation

The Small Print was one of the first songs from the Absolution era to be performed live. Of all Absolution-era songs debuted in 2002, The Small Print was performed the most often and has the most amount of available footage. The early version, known at the time by the acronym "TSP" or "The Smallprint", had an extended post-verse section, different lyrics, and a different solo. While performed very often in 2002, it was performed significantly less in 2003, only appearing at about half of the tour and not performed at all after the 12/04/2003 performance in Brighton. It wouldn't be until the 02/07/2004 gig in Tokyo that The Small Print would return to setlists.

For 2004, Chris took over partial vocal duty for the chorus. This change took place for the first time at the 02/08/2004 performance in Tokyo and lasted throughout the remainder of the tour. Though performed very often in 2004 and 2005, The Small Print has never been performed since the end of the Absolution tour. While the band have not given up on the song, including it as a setlist option at Shepherds Bush Empire 2017, the song has yet to make a reappearance live. Rumours that the song was being rehearsed for the Drones tour back in May 2015 were never confirmed and likely can be traced back to wishful thinking.
