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.[4] Pre-sale took place on the 4th[4] and general sale started the following day.[1] Attendees needed to be 13 or older.[2]

On playing songs from The Resistance live, Dominic Howard stated that learning to do so "should take a while!"[5] and Rehearsals started on the 19th of July.[6] On the 22nd, musewire readers were told to "expect an 8" stone 'enge" for The Resistance tour's stage design.[7]

The top of Dominic Howard's pillar structure was missing during the gig, which is suspected to be the reason as to why the band opened with Exogenesis (Overture) instead of Uprising, which has been the regular opener on The Resistance tour. This also meant that they did not play We Are the Universe as an introduction. Before Cave something malfunctioned with Christopher Wolstenholme's bass, which caused a slight delay, but this was soon rectified, and the band could continue. Balloons were released during Stockholm Syndrome.


After Resistance Bellamy "Thank you".[8]
Before Cave[9] "This song is called Cave ... [?] ... Is it fucked, is it fucked? Eh? Alright alright, yeah?
Wolstenholme "Everyone alright? [laughs]"
Bellamy "It sounds alright, alright?"
Wolstenholme "Are you ready?"
Bellamy "Am I ready? Yeah. Any time, any time".
