Ricochet (11:00) Phaedra The point at which the curtains open and the three-man line-up is revealed, backs to the audience facing monitors with Modular Moog emulators on-screen. The title track from appeared to be longer than planned due to the backing tapes getting stuck. Phaedra (6:30) Mysterious Semblance At The Strand Of Nightmares The live premiere of this track sees the album version overlaid with more modern timbres. Phaedra (6:30) Rubycon, Part One An only mildly tangentised version of the album track from , launching with the bass sequence. Rubycon (4:30) Force Majeure A similar rendition to that in 2001. (4:15) Desert Dream The "stately keyboard" part updated in a manner not unlike that found on . Tangents (6:45) Underwater Twilight Unlike the 1986 live version, this starts with the atmospheric intro of the album version.

White Eagle (6:00) Silver Scale Similar to the recent live versions rather than the 1980/81 era version. (5:00) Logos A pretty faithful performance of the track as on . Logos Live (4:45) Choronzon Unusually in the main set, this is based not around the extended ten-minute workout this piece is used to, but is instead a faithful rendition of the shorter, four-minute album version from .

Underwater Sunlight (5:15) Oriental Haze Featuring the first appearance of Linda Spa this evening. (3:00) Cobalt Rain A bridge piece which also accompanied the following track in 2001, suggesting that, in the live arena at least, the two are inseparable.

DM 4 Encores (9:00) Talking To Maddox (10:45) Homeless (3:15) Purple Haze A lively rendition with all six preformers on stage for the only time this evening.
