    Sweeeeet, this is my video. I have some Mondo Cane videos from last year’s performance in Malmö, Sweden (including some soundcheck footage) up too if anyone’s interested.

        I just wish I’d gotten the whole thing, but I was the furthest thing from prepared and my camera was at the bottom of my bag. Hopefully they’ll do it again and there will be better footage.

    I love this version !!!!
    But I think it’s too sad because I can’t find other vids of Hove Festival in You Tube, it bores me !!!!

      If you go to my account via the Fuck You video, there are a couple from Easy and Epic respectively.

      They only did Reunited and Easy. And a snippet of Popcorn during Midlife Crisis. No Poker Face intro to Chinese.

        Where was there a Black Eyed Peas ad-lib at Brixton? I was there and I remember no such thing …

        Mike sang the “get that boom boom boom” part a few times throughout Chinese Arithmetic, listen for it during the intro (through the megaphone) and in the short break after the second chorus.

        It’s not quite as obvious as the more recent intros, I completely missed it when I was there on the night too.

        Ah ok – glad I’m not the only one who missed it then – I was obviously just too excited about being there!

        I will have to see if I can find it when I get home tonight.

    They first did this intro to CA at the Hurricane Festival. I was there and told my friend, “Ok, here comes Poker Face” and then they made a fool of me by doing this instead. I didn’t know what it was until this post though, so thanks.
