"Hold It Together" was debuted at the last show of the 2018 Asian tour in Singapore, where Mike missed the beginning of the synth solo during the bridge on account of him jumping around the stage during the second chorus. Somewhat sporadically, starting with the show in Moscow, Mike would mess around with the vocal samples as an intro to the song. At the Wien stop, Mike messed around with the samples at the end of the song rather than the beginning. At the Bremen show, Mike and touring drummer Dan Mayo improvised an extended outro to "Hold It Together", which they would continue expanding upon with later shows.
