Berlin O₂ World 2009 (gig)
|Date||29th October 2009|
|Color Line Arena||←||O2 World||→||Stade Couvert Régional|
This concert was part of the European leg of The Resistance tour, announced on the 1st of June. Fan pre-sale information and links were announced on the 3rd of June. Pre-sale took place on the 17th–19th and general sale started on the 19th.
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.
The tarp on Howard's tower got stuck about half way down when released during Uprising. The band stood on their elevating towers until the guitar-beginning of New Born, while the keyboard intro was played by Morgan Nicholls. Balloons were released during Plug In Baby. Matthew Bellamy kicked his mic-stand over during the second chorus of Stockholm Syndrome, which he fixed himself. Also, his guitar became out of tune which was restored directly[what?].
|After New Born||Bellamy||"Guten Abend [ en: Good evening], Berlin! How're you doing? Sorry for the Spinal Tap affair."|
|After Map of the Problematique||"Danke schön [en: Thank you]."|
|After Supermassive Black Hole||"Thanks very much, thank you."|
|Before Guiding Light||Howard||"How's it going Berlin? It's nice to see you guys again. Always a pleasure."|
|After Guiding Light||Bellamy||"Danke schön."|
|Before United States of Eurasia||Howard||"What you all need to do is whip out your mobile phones and let's light this venue up. Wave 'em around in the air at the start of this song. That's it."|
|After United States of Eurasia||Bellamy||"Vielen dank [en: Thanks a lot]."|
|After Starlight||"Thank you very much".|
