Tour information:

The Resistance Tour is an ongoing concert tour by English alternative rock band Muse in support of their fifth studio album The Resistance. The opening European leg began on 22 October 2009 and ended on 4 December 2009, comprising 30 shows. The second leg, which began on 7 January 2010, included thirteen shows, seven of which were part of the Australasian Big Day Out shows. A North American leg of 26 shows took place in early 2010. Nine new stadium shows have been announced to take place in Europe in 2010, with three of those dates taking place at Wembley Stadium and Old Trafford Cricket Ground. A second round of North American concerts will take place throughout September and October 2010. These dates will focus on secondary markets and other areas not previously hit on the tour. A return to Australasia is set to take place throughout December 2010.

For the Summer Stadium Tour, the band changed the set design completely. It was based on the book 1984 by George Orwell and features the band on a triangular-pyramid shaped stage. The stage features a ball on the top which is said to be the "All Seeing Eye" from the book 1984. On the pyramid itself there are separated blocks, with most of them being screens which project animations and also turn inside out occasionally.
