Pre-sale tickets completely sold out for all UK dates in ~35 minutes.[source?]
On playing songs from The Resistance live, Dominic Howard stated that learning to do so "should take a while!" and Rehearsals started on the 19th of July. On the 22nd, musewire readers were told to "expect an 8" stone 'enge" for the tour's stage design.
Matthew Bellamy used his Manson Mirror Kaoss for Hysteria. The balloons were released during Plug In Baby. Afterwards, the band played Burning Bridges whilst waiting for the final balloons to be popped.
As Bellamy considered himself "not very good at retrospectives", he stated after the gig in a Q magazine interview that this gig had been the best thing that had happened to the band this century.[archive this]
