Live

"Dolla" was featured in the earliest Fort Minor setlists, being performed at the group's first show at Pukkelpop 2005. It was originally featured as the second-to-last song in the set, but was quickly moved up near the start. After this movement, it stayed in the third position of Fort Minor's sets for all of the subsequent tours.

On occasion, during the Minutes To Midnight touring cycle, Mike's verse from "Dolla" was rapped over the extended intro of "Points Of Authority". It appeared starting at the Woodlands, Texas stop on Projekt Revolution 2007, and saw its last appearance in Lexington, Kentucky on the 2008 North American Tour.

The song returned to Fort Minor's sets when Mike revived the project with "Welcome" in 2015. It was shortened to only featured his verse with a new guitar part performed under it. It was coincidentally performed in the third slot of the setlist, just like the years before.
