Analysis and Explanation

Performed somewhat often between 1996 and 1997, Host was dropped from setlists before the Showbiz Tour. There are no confirmed appearances of this song during the Showbiz tour though part of the song was soundchecked at the 05/21/2000 concert in Berlin. However the song made no appearances live and was assumed by many to have been officially retired from live shows.

However, after an absence of almost 15 years, Host was given a surprise partial revival in 2012 as an intro to Time Is Running Out. Only the first verse of the song was performed (up until the "Sick of this space..." part) before leading straight into TIRO. The song was only played during the European leg, making no further appearances after November 2012 and none at all in 2013.

It did not reappear for the Drones Tour, though the band brought Host out once in 2017 at Bunbury Festival and one further time later that year as a brief 30-second instrumental intro to Time Is Running Out. Matt sang no lyrics these appearances but did some improv vocal work on the latter appearance so it's still counted as a live appearance.

Since then Host has been occasionally been played, but simply as an instrumental riff played by Matt, making one appearance in 2018 as well as a two appearances on the Simulation Theory World Tour in 2019 - all times as an intro to Time is Running Out.
