They did that at a lot of the shows on that tour, from what I've heard.
This reminds me - I was gonna comment to this thread. @ Cameron, I think your observation about the parts being greater than the sum is how I feel, too. I rarely do yoga by myself - it's either to the P90X video or in a class that's held after work on Wednesdays - but when I do, I usually prefer silence or something really mellow without a noticeable beat to it. I don't want to be tempted to move with the rhythm of something external such as music - I think it's best if I listen to the rhythm of my own body and mind instead.
Now when I do the X-Stretch routine, I've been known to wear my mp3 player with a little Caspian or This Will Destroy You playing, but that's a different story.
EDIT: ...and when I lift weights, it's fucking Pig Destroyer or High on Fire or something hella awesome like that. Totes. Gotta have me my metal when I'm a-liftin'.
