Q. Last night's show was brilliant. Just awesome. My question is: how does being late (for whatever reason) on stage affect the band's performance? For instance, did they have to cut songs out of the show or did Apple let them play the whole set regardless? As a musician I can imagine how it might be more stressful in that situation, but Chris and the guys are so used to playing huge gigs does it not matter anymore? I for one thought it was brilliant!

Thank you!

ps. I understand if you can't disclose this, but... what WAS the hold-up backstage?

The Oracle replies:

I have no idea what the hold up was but unless there is a venue curfew - meaning the band have to be off by a certain time - there is no impact on the show. In this case the set wasn't cut short, in fact a song was added - see next question.
