The “preliminary” label is used as the tour doesn’t really start until June and the set was abbreviated to fit into the festival schedule.

It was still a chance to see some of the stunning new visuals that the band will be using for the upcoming trek and to get a preview of two songs from their new album, Electric (Axis, The Last to Die).
