This concert was part of the European leg of "The Resistance" tour, announced on the 1st of June.[1] Fan pre-sale information and links were announced on the 3rd of June.[3] Pre-sale took place on the 4th[3] and general sale started the following day.[1]

On playing songs from "The Resistance" live, Dominic Howard stated that learning to do so "should take a while!"[4]. Rehearsals started on the 19th of July.[5] On the 22nd, musewire readers were told to "expect an 8" stone 'enge" for The Resistance tour's stage design.[6]

Straight after New Born, Bellamy shouted, "Cheers Dublin! Good to be back in Ireland"

Howard said sometime later, "How's it going, Dublin?"

Balloons were released during Plug in Baby and CO2 was released during Knights of Cydonia.

Howard introduced "Unintended" saying, "Hi Dublin. We'd like you to take out your lighters, for the old schoolers, and your mobile phones, for the new schoolers, so we can light up this lovely venue here..."

Bellamy played the intro to Plug In Baby lying down on his back.[7][watch]

Early on in the gig, an Irish flag was thrown onstage. Bellamy picked it up and handed it to Howard, who held it above the drumkit before draping it across it. Later, at some time during Knights of Cydonia, Bellamy wore the flag across his shoulders- the flag draped across the body of the guitar; Bellamy played the strings through the material. At the end of the song, Bellamy held the flag over the vertical gas vents and allowed them to buffet the flag. Bellamy then left the stage with the flag in hand.

At the very end, Dominic spoke into Wolstenholme's microphone to say "Thank you Dublin! You guys are amazing, thanks, see you again."
