Setlist[edit]

The tour set list omits less well known songs for festival appearances. Songs introduced during the run include "So Like A Rose" (from Beautiful Garbage) performed in London, as a tribute to "Blood For Poppies" music video director Matt Irwin. At the beginning of July, debut album track "Supervixen" was added to the set, along with "Shut Your Mouth", while "Subhuman", "Queer", "Milk", "Androgyny" and "Beloved Freak" returned to the set on occasion over the following two months. During September, Strange Little Birds tracks "Night Drive Loneliness" and "Magnetized" were performed in concert, "So We Can Stay Alive" has also been sound-checked.

During this tour, Shirley has been quoting lines from the Beyoncé songs "Sorry" and "Don't Hurt Yourself" alongside lyrics from Marianne Faithfull's "Why D'Ya Do It", Patti Smith Group's "Revenge" and Siouxsie and the Banshees' "Drop Dead/Celebration" on "Vow". In addition to interpolating from "Talk of the Town" by The Pretenders on "Special", Shirley has also quoted lines from their song "Kid" and their cover of "I Go to Sleep".
