Information

  • Dead Star was played for the first time in three years.
  • At the beginning of the climactic instrumental of Supremacy, Matt's 7-string guitar failed to make a sound, meaning only the bass and backing keyboard track are audible. Concluding the song without an audible final chord, Matt said "broke my guitar in the first song!"
  • During the Kaoss Pad solo of Supermassive Black Hole, Matt stood near the barrier and let the fans 'play' the Kaoss Pad solo.
  • During the start of Panic Station, Matt's microphone has been out for couple of seconds. Also, during the solo, Matt hit the mic with the headstock of his Manson M1D1 Gloss Black, though he quickly adjusted to its positioning.
  • After Animals, fans shouted "Play some Rage!" and "Time to play Fury now!" to which Matt laughed and started to play Follow Me.
  • During the United States Of Eurasia, Matt forgot the lyrics "You and me fall in line" and sang "You and me are umm...".
  • After finishing United States of Eurasia, Bellamy jumped onto his Kawai piano and walked across the keys to his stationary mic.
  • Before Madness, an audience member shouted "Madness is shit!" to which Bellamy replied "Ha! We'll play that one for you then." A voice in the audience can then be heard comically saying "Madness is alright!"
  • While the fans sung the second chorus of Plug In Baby, Matt produced same crazy noises with the Fuzz Factory because the pickups of his Manson Mirror cut out. Also Matt's in-ear monitors stopped working during the song. He concluded Plug in Baby with throwing his guitar into Dom's bass drum. Afterwards he smashed it a few times into his Dickinson Amp and finally threw it across Dom's drum kit, damaging the guitar. The guitar was sent into repairs. During these repairs, the guitar's body was modified by having holes drilled into the body for lighter weight.
  • For Uprising, Chris used a new bass for the first time, the custom red finish/red-LED Status Original Series II, or as it's reffered to by Status, The Uprising Bass.
  • Someone from the audience gave Chris a flag, whereupon he covered the bass drum with it.
  • Towards the end of Starlight, Matt was hit with a horse's head mask, thrown by a fan. Matt gave it to Dom and wanted him to play a song with it on, which Dom refused to do, and Survival went horse-headless.
  • During Starlight, Matt changed the lyric "I don't know if it's worth it any more" to "now I know it's not worth it any more", and said "Black fucking holes and fucking revelations!"
  • During Uprising, Matt said "They will not con-fucking-trol us!"
  • Last performance of Save Me to date

Media

This gig was streamed live on Youtube. Afterwards, the full concert was available on the LoveLiveTV channel, except Supremacy, Save Me and Plug in Baby. On the 25th of February, the channel added the Director's Cut of the show that has improved audio quality (for example the speech and Chris' shouting in Dead Star can be heard much better and clearer).

You can watch the full gig here.
