A performance for Xfm, the first of the Origin of Symmetry era.[2]


The first known out-of-studio performance of "Citizen Erased", and the first recorded "Micro Cuts". It is also the first time the Manson Delorean was used in public.

The ending of Citizen Erased was played on guitar instead of piano, and Micro Cuts has a different ending too (maybe that was like the demo version from 2000). In Feeling Good Matt repeat his infamous "fucking fuck you" interlude.

Matthew Bellamy restarted "Plug In Baby" after a guitar problem and Micro Cuts was out of tune.[3]


After Citizen Erased Bellamy "Cheers. ... This song is called Sunburn".
After Sunburn "Cheers. This song is uh *strange noises*... This song is called Feeling Good by Nina Simone* ... Woops".
Before New Born "Uh, I think ... Uh it's New Born, it's called New Born yeah? This song is called New Born I think. ... Uh, I think".
After New Born "Cheers".
After Cave "Thank you".
After Muscle Museum "Cheers".
Before restarting Plug In Baby "Sorry, My guitar broke".
After Plug In Baby "Cheers".
Before Micro Cuts "This is our last song, thank you very much. We're playing in uh, Brixton or something. ... Chris, Chris, Chris".

*"Feeling Good" was not written by Nina Simone but by Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse.
