I agree with both things Dolce and also hope that "Down the Dolce Vita" is played live during the New Blood Tour!
And lucky you Sammy for being in the audience during this performance of "Lovetown". . .this was not played at the MSG show in NYC that I saw. . .
Here is the clip that Cimber is referring to on page one of this thread. . .wonderful. . .
"Lovetown" ~ live 1993 Secret World Tour
And yes, Cimber, I'd love to spend some time in those archives in Box as well. . . :-]

"Exposure" was performed at all three 1978 New York City area shows (The Bottom Line, The Capitol Theater, and the Palladium). Note Robert Fripp sat in on the Bottom Line shows and appeared at the end of the Palladium show. Note also that the Bottom Line and Capitol Theater shows included a very early version of "Not One of Us", and the Palladium show included what Peter indicated was the first public performance of a song that later became "Family Snapshot".
"And Through the Wire" was performed at the 1980 show at the Hotel Diplomat in New york City.

Thank you Zukey for these informations.
I know that "Indigo" was played in a slightly different version with PG's voice sounding very strange. I read somewhere that he took helium before singing it.

I think you are referring to the 1977 tour. Peter played a song on that tour called "A Song Without Words", which I believe he claimed to be singing with an alien friend. Peters vocals were fed simultaneously through the concert PA and a synthesizer which gave the effect of him singing a duet with a very high voice. "A Song Without Words was essentially an early version "Indigo" - pretty much the same melody, but different vocals. The same duet effect was used on the 1978 tour, where Peter opened each show singing "Me and My Teddy Bear" with his stuffed teddy bear.

Thank you for sending the you tube link. I had not heard that recording before - it is very interesting for me because the middle, free form scat-like section of that performance is significantly different from other performances of "A Song Without Words" that I have heard. I wonder if the Cleveland show was near the end of the 1977 US Tour as Peter seemed to tinker with many early versions of songs as his early tours progressed.
