I cant see them performing virtually, but it would be amazing if they did something a la You only tell me you love me when you're drunk from Nightlife Tour.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

Yeah, was wondering the same. Something pre-recorded I guess, it does start streaming from 1AM UK time. Maybe something like the XFM session tracks...?

Be nice if it was a preview of one or two of the 'Dreamworld' live arrangements we've yet to hear due to the tour being postponed.

That was a great updated version. Glad I tuned in for that! Loved Chris' chair slide away from the desk at the end! Lol.

Neil Tennant has a great voice, Chris Lowe has great silence.

Thanks for the link. I hope they put the whole thing on YouTube again. I had forgotten about it and only watched the last 30 minutes.
