Sirius XM OutQ

I'd been waiting on this set of performances for ages, hoping that Sirius XM would post them on their channel but they still haven't appeared. Right now we only have the audio captured by @ScorpioBert. This set was performed back in February at the studio's Fishbowl for The Morning Jolt with Larry Flick.

The set starts with WWFM, the arrangement sounds lovely, especially the piano. Adam uses some new runs during his belts which sound fantastic. Trespassing sounds great with a beat, especially with that slightly electronic bass. There are some vocal tricks and lots of variations from the usual acoustic versions. OOL starts with a piano, something I'd hoped to hear since the debut. Other instruments are gradually introduced. It's a powerful and stirring rendition that has a different ending as he chooses to wail through rather than sing it. I realise it's been a while since we last heard BTIKM, even longer since Kevin's backing vocals but I realise I have missed it. Fever is jazzy, fun and free-flowing with brilliant vocals. The last song is Purple Haze, and it's the first time I've heard him do an acoustic version. His voice sounds rich and strong, ending with a riff from Trespassing.
