Set List

Main Set

Ça Va - Ça Marche - Ça Ira Encore (5:45)
Starts in a similar way to the studio version on the Ça Va - Ça Marche - Ça Ira Encore EP, but soon the bongos that will be everpresent tonight join in. Indeed, there is more percussion as a whole on this track. The guitar part is slightly different.
Cat Scan (6:45)
The first of five renditions that evening of tracks from i-Box. Remarkably, they were all taken from disc number four. Some tracks, including this one (originally from Optical Race), were somewhat remixed for this release. The segue in is somewhat reminiscent of Mars Polaris type chord padding, particularly a choir patch which overlays the early part of the piece.
Comet's Figure Head (10:45)
Basically the same as the album version on Mars Polaris, though with some new guitar work from the middle onwards.
Cool At Heart (3:45)
Originally from Melrose, this was played as on i-Box, the second such track here.
Force Majeure (5:15)
A welcome return for this former live favourite from Force Majeure, after an absence of almost 20 years. The excerpt was that part played live in the early '80s, this time overlaid with bongos.
Going West (4:45)
Caspian Sea (7:30)
The Comfort Zone (10:00)
Warsaw In The Sun (4:45)
The Midnight Trail (6:15)
Longing For Cashba (6:15)
The fifth and final rendition as on i-Box, embellished a little with bongos (as were most tracks that night). Cuts off slightly early compared to the alubm version, though, not getting into the saxophone ending.
Percussion Solo (2:15)
Iris Camaa was temporarily left alone on stage for a percussion solo, while the others took a short break. There was no interruption in the music. Poor Iris herself got no break until the end of the main set!
Prime Time (9:30)
Towards The Evening Star (Blue Gravity Mix) (12:15)
Outland (The Colony) (9:30)
TimeSquare (The Legendary N.Y. Brix Mix) (13:45)
Astrophobia (Red Supernova Mix) (9:15)
Beauty Of The Blast (5:30)
Identical to the What A Blast version.
Terra Gravity (2:45)
Wormhole Number Five (2:45)
Red Ocean (3:30)

Encores

Stereolight (7:45)

Notes

A return to London for the band's third concert in the city in less than five years (and all at the Shepherd's Bush Empire). A sizeable chunk of the tracks were available either on The Past Hundred Moons (two days before its official release) or on i-Box, both available in the foyer beforehand. The second "half" of the main set followed the Klangart 1999 tracklist (which was their previous live date, of course).
