It should have been released 2 years ago, right? Now Matt says maybe for x-mas, but he often says things and then it doesn‘t happen ... 

Well Christmas is the usual time for these things, gifts and all that. Though knowing Matt I can see it delayed further. They were talking about packaging in last December....

I'm not even huge on The Void, but this is pretty fucking awesome. Matt playing the synth part on guitar with the mic still in his hand. Whyyyy in the world did they wait so long to play this? Makes no sense, this should've absolutely been a staple song. It fits with this show perfectly and works really well live.

Reasons I originally suspected, I imagine. Got the initial version of the show set up and orchestrated then waited for a break to be able to add more on.

Blockades now. This weekend. It’s comin’ 👀

That performance of TV is fucking perfect. I really hope they bring this song over to the US at some point and that I get to see it.

Nice. Very nice indeed. Shame still about the rest of the set. If they'd played Bliss and this had come in for Madness, that would have been ace (I like Dig Down in its hokey form).

Early access IS still a thing btw, confirmed on tickets and apparently emails. Just not obvs in the advertisements.

What the fucking fuck is the point of playing - all bar one song - the identical show in the same city three months apart? Gash. This tour has been utter shite. The worst.

Ohh thought you meant full song.

Oh, nah not quite but with something like Agitated the riffs basically are the bulk of the song tbf. Just missing a few lines of Matt going “yulalamelayela” and summat about his yeah yeah.

Overall, now it looks like I’m finally done with the ST tour, I honestly think it might’ve been my most fun touring era so far. It’s defo hammered home that a lot more than setlist variety can bring you enjoyment at a gig. Brill album, fantastic production, pretty much perfect runtime, couple of great performances, TAB a staple + Bliss rotating. Lotta sentimental stuff too like interactions with other fans new and old, finally breaking the barrier of starting to become familiar to the (so far) universally lovely crew, going to a bucket list venue in RAH and a nostalgic one in the O2, a successful happy bday sign for Matt as well as a couple of picks from the big boi (you wait nigh on a decade for one and get two back-to-back like it’s nowt 🤦🏼‍♀️) and my first time at a filmed show. Sad it’s over but ngl am ready for a change of pace.

Yep, it was awesome judging by the youtube videos. It's so strange that they played Showbiz and not Blockades this tour..

 If I only went to the first night's concert and find out that they played Showbiz the day after, I would've killed myself

You’re welcome!

If they’d make an extended version of Simulation Theory film, where they add clips of the songs they didn’t play in O2  (Bliss, Undisclosed Desires, Showbiz, perhaps blockades) it’d be amazing.
