Slow Rush single ‘Posthumous Forgiveness’ came next and after this InnerSpeaker‘s ‘Alter Ego‘ – a song the band had not been performed by the band since 2017.

Kevin and the company then surprised the crowd with the aforementioned veer into ‘Perfect Illusion’ before diving into InnerSpeaker’s ‘Expectation’ and The Slow Rush‘s ‘Lost In Yesterday’.
