T.I. made a live appearance on Diesel XXX "Rock and Roll Circus" at Pier 3 in Brooklyn on Saturday, October 11. First singing "Bring Em Out", which eventually yielded to "Swing Ya Rag" and a dark, angry version of "What You Know", he then shifted to a more playful single "Whatever You Like". Accompanied by M.I.A. who jumped onstage to provide backing vocals, T.I. then performed another song called "Swagga Like Us".
Furthermore, on his Rihanna-featuring single "Live Your Life", T.I. took the stage with Franz Ferdinand who plugged in to provide a live accompaniment for the rapper. As the song's finished, the band continued on with their own set which featured a handful of new songs for the band's next album, as well as old favorites such as "Michael", "Matinee", and "Take Me Out".
Earlier in the evening, Hot Chip served as a backing band for Chaka Khan on her hit singles like "I Feel For You" and "Ain't Nobody". Hot Chip's own set consisted of "Shake a Fist", "One Pure Thought", and "Ready for the Floor".
