This page contains a list of all known performances of JFK.
Analysis and Explanation
It is played as an intro before songs. Technically the oldest song on the album, the band played JFK live on the 2007 tour as an intro to the concert/encore, usually before Knights of Cydonia or Take a Bow.
Most of the concerts during the Drones Festivals Tour, Uprising was played after JFK. It was then played before Defector's only performance yet on September 16th, 2015. It was skipped in certain areas such as Russia and the Asian/South American leg of the tour. After 2 months, JFK made its return for The Drones World Tour 2015/16. Up until the 2nd night in Los Angeles, Revolt was played after it. Since then, Reapers is played after.

* JFK was played at a small amount of gigs in 2007 as intro music.
** Drones was played twice at every performance from its debut with three exceptions as of the last update. The actual total of gigs is highly inflated in comparison with other songs as a result. It has not been performed twice at festival dates, however, since the end of the 360 Tour in 2016.
