In the media
This song was introduced to the band's live show during their 2003 tour supporting the original release of The Beautiful Letdown. It is played at nearly every show, most likely due to the song's success on CCM radio stations. Live performances of the song are characterized by fans enthusiastically singing along, especially during the song's coda. During the bridge, guitarist Drew Shirley generally contributes additional lead lines not featured in the studio version. During the Appetite for Construction Tour the band played "Gone" as a medley with Beyoncé's 2003 hit Crazy in Love, which the band covered for Pepsi Cover Art in 2007.
