Vivacitas (subtitled "Live at Glasgow 2002") is a live album recorded by the Nice, who reformed for a set of concerts, augmented by the Keith Emerson Band for the second half of the concert. David O'List, The Nice's original guitarist, did not take part, and was replaced by Dave Kilminster. The album mostly consists of versions of pieces which had been live favourites during the Nice's heyday between 1967 and 1970, some pieces performed by Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and a 2001 interview with Emerson, Lee Jackson and Brian Davison by Chris Welch.
