Later on, the website contained information about their début shows (15 , 17 & 19 Sept), a video player was also added to the site, showing full versions of "Vanity Kills" and new track "Hollywood". Reviews to the initial shows were positive, complimenting the duo's vocals and the musical arrangements. Read more on Last.fm.
