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.[5] Pre-sale took place on the 4th–5th[5] and general sale started on the 8th.[1] The concert was promoted by Livenation.[6]

On playing songs from The Resistance live, Dominic Howard stated that learning to do so "should take a while!"[7] and Rehearsals started on the 19th of July.[8] On the 22nd, musewire readers were told to "expect an 8" stone 'enge" for The Resistance tour's stage design.[9]

Guiding Light and Exogenesis: Symphony Part 1 (Overture) were played live for the first time, while Unintended was played for the first time in two years. Balloons were released during Plug In Baby.
