Analysis and Explanation

Assassin, alongside Exo-Politics, made its debut on the 2005 Campus Invasion Tour, where it was performed at all but two gigs, sometimes as the opener. These 2005 performances are treasured and the only time live that Matt has sung the Grand Omega Bosses Edit. By 2007 the band had played the song a moderate number of times before dropping it from setlists after July 2, 2007. There are notably fewer 2007 performances as perhaps the band grew tired of the song by then. During The Resistance Tour in which the band asked fans to select songs they wanted to hear, Assassin made the top five most requested songs during at least nine gigs. Muse did not play Assassin during The Resistance Tour or The 2nd Law Tour.

On the first date of the Psycho UK Tour some fans barraged the band with outpouring demands to hear Assassin, though the band didn't rehearse it beforehand and Matt couldn't play more than a few riffs from the song. It was finally played again for the first time in eight years in the following week. Assassin made rare appearances afterwards including a famous performance at the Mayan Theatre though it was never a setlist staple. From 2016 onwards the song has been performed a handful of times mostly due to fan demand.
