Background[edit]

See also: The SPACE Tour

The StarKid Precarious Auditory Concert Experience Tour,[7] more commonly abbreviated to The SPACE Tour, was the debut concert tour of StarKid Productions. The tour visited fifteen cities in North America,[3] and consisted of performances of songs from the group's previous productions: Little White Lie, A Very Potter Musical, Me and My Dick, A Very Potter Sequel and Starship.

The seven regular performers for the tour (see Personnel below), were occasionally joined by other current or former members of the group. The most notable of which was Darren Criss, who joined the tour for four concerts in Boston and New York City.[8] For the Gramercy Theatre concert, where the album was recorded, there were no guest performers.

The album marks the first time songs referencing Harry Potter have been sold for monetary gain by the group. Previously, songs referencing the series were released for free on the A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel soundtrack albums.

Despite being performed on the tour, "It's Over Now" from Little White Lie is not included on the album.

Track listing[edit]

All songs written by Darren Criss, except for "Different As Can Be" and "Boy Toy", which are written by A.J. Holmes and Grant Anderson respectively. All songs re-arranged for live performance by Clark Baxtresser.[9]
