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.[6] Pre-sale took place on the 4th[6] and general sale started the following day.[1] Both pre-sale and general sale sold out, the latter in its first day.[source?]

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]

MK ULTRA was played live for the second time ever.

After New Born, Matt said "Thank you! Thank You! Way better than last night, way better!"

Baloons were released during Plug in Baby and CO2 was used at the end of Knights of Cydonia

During the solo in Knights of Cydonia, Matt skipped around the stage.

At the end of the gig, Matt and Dom both said something along the lines of "Thank you London! We'll see you next year/next summer!" in reference to the Wembley gig that was announced the same day.
