But the big shock has been the encores- where the band has been playing b sides and rarities, many of which fans have never been privy to hearing live 

 

Friday night - the band played:

“Babble” and “Out of Mind” -  “Lullaby” b-sides

“Fear of Ghosts”  “Lovesong” b-side

“Delirious Night,” “Esten” and “No Heart” album outtakes

They also dropped a cover of Wendy Waldman’s “Pirate Ships” 

 

Saturday's show started with the B Sides and ended with "Burn" from The Crow OST and another cover of Wendy Waldman’s “Pirate Ships” 

 

Here's some crowd sourced video from the shows
