I'd love to know how he played this on the Moving Pictures / Exit Stage Left tours, since the OB-X synth was off to his left where there's no microphone. There's also the trick of getting those sample/hold (blippity bloopity) parts to fade in and out. This might be doable with a foot pedal on the back though. Certainly this song got easier to play with the new synth/mic arrangements on the Signals tour.
There's been way too much water under the bridge since I saw the MP tour (I think they also played it on the Signals tour, but again, that was a long time ago), so I don't remember this specifically, but what would have prevented them from putting a mic by the OB for those tours?
Nothing stopping them, but from looking at the photos I wasn't seeing a mic over there. Of course in the photo below, it almost looks like he could use his main mic (possibly swinging it over closer).
On a side note, I think he must be using one of the Oberheim exp
ression pedals to fade the sample/hold effect in and out. When listening to those live clips, he is definitely controlling it dynamically (and it's all coming from the same synth - the sample/hold effect actually makes it hard to hear the chords he's playing in the intro - on the record it's two separate tracks, so both are heard clearly)
