Swedish House Mafia performed a medley of “It Gets Better” and “Lifetime” on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and on the pre-show at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards.
In October 2021, to celebrate the release of “Moth to a Flame”, the supergroup hosted the twentieth episode of the Weeknd’s Apple Music 1 radio show Memento Mori.
