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 Resistance tour's stage design.
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.
