He did not. I assume you're talking about the third repeat on the final chorus? If so then no he sang it pretty soft.

Little shit

So seems no one can tie Pray to a pre-existing piece? If that’s original it’s brill. Strange to do tho, would be the first time they’ve played an unreleased song like that for a long time as well

Vocals on Pray were playback. Sounded like a new interlude/song they made for the tour.

This set seems like it's going to be really tough vocally.

Over 11 years after starting Close Encounters in the spacey album we now have an 80s retro album and it fits again.

Not counting Pray we're legit just getting one debut tonight. With tons of songs off the new album not getting played. Literally would trade TAB for Blockades.

Matt not playing guitar on TC. Yeah thats it for me. I wanted to see a show from this tour before debating on getting tickets and traveling. This is retarded lol. One of the few rock'ish songs on the new album and Matt is prancing around like a diva per usual.

Yeah not playing guitar for most of Thought Contagion is a serious head-scratcher. The only reason that song is decent live is cause of the beefy guitar.

I mean I love Blockades but wooooooow brah

I’m not too surprised. Always expected GUAF and TV to be rare or not played. They usually rotate one or two so Blockades could still come in.

@matt I love TC but its not popular enouh to ask the audience to sing bits, don’t do that again thx

Wait he didn’t play guitar for it? fuck offfffffffffff please

For a song just being so-so to me it has a hell of a riff.

Also apparently VIP people got let into standing at the same time as GA. Seen some VIP peeps moaning about it but frankly thank fuck, hope it stays that way. I’d feel bad for you spending the money but you shouldn’t support shitty practices like that in the first place.

I think he played it starting with the final "You've been bitten by" part. Like how he does with Uprising now. Not sure why he thinks that's a cool idea.

Yeah I hope it stays that way since I think the early entrance is super lame, but at the same time I feel bad for people who bought them since that's the main reason most people spent the $300 or whatever.

Thing is, there’s really not that much prominent guitar in Uprising until the part where he picks it back up so you’re not missing out on much. It’s also a pretty ploddy/moody song so he can pull off just walking about all dramatic. What was he doing during TC? ‘Cos unless he was hurling himself about jumping up and down like a proper wee pop star then it frankly does the song a humongous injustice 🙅‍♀️

Walking around with the guitar on his back doing stupid hand gestures. Typical Post-TR Matt.

Ffs Matt I can defend you for a lot mate but this ain’t the song chief

Just had the biggest flush of relief that I caught it before it was so brutally abused like this, the only UK performance no less 💔
