  2. 2. Crystallized
  3. 3. Islands

  11. 11. Dangerous
    Sims: At the start of the tour, I would dedicate this song to the couples in the crowd. But now I'm single... and, I'm quite bitter about it. So now, this song is for all the single people here tonight.

  14. 14. Loud Places —>
    "I have never reached such heights." The xx leave stage, but the bass drum keeps going. Jamie xx returns to stage and starts playing Hall & Oates, which means...
