THIS. Muser meets made this tour, especially in the US where the die-hard fans are so far away from each other.

Other positives:
-The visuals. Hexagons, towers, or gigantic freaking pyramid, they were all beautiful, especially from the cheap seats. The laser show at LA Rising was so awesome! I can still remember the multicolored lasers flying over me and the rest of GA zone 1.

-Matt's voice. HELLO, maturity! Every song sounds massive these days.

-Unnatural Selection. Glad I got to see it twice, before it became a "rarity". It's a beast.

-The return of Butterflies and Hurricanes, Citizen Erased, and Ruled by Secrecy.

-United States of Eurasia. I was kind of "meh" about it on the album, but it's a different beast live, especially when it gets loud.

-Morgan!

Was gonna mention this one. TBH, I hated United States of Eurasia after the whole scavenger hunt, but that thing is immense live. Not every Resistance track followed this fate of great live translation, of course. (Undisclosed Desirezzzzzzzzzzz, anyone?) But that, Unnatural Selection, and Uprising (gets points for the outro riff) worked very well live.

Oxegen (PiB baby opening, brilliant KoC, Dom dressed as Lady Gaga), Casino de Paris (tiny venue, 1st IBTY) and Lievin (brilliant performance + Halloween costume).

The beefy sound and the TaB laser show in Kiev.

I personally loved how the band changed as the Resistance Tour went on. Hearing Uprising for the first time live in Philadelphia was amazing, until I compared it to hearing it in Newark almost a year later. You can tell they added more effects to Chris's vocals, turned up the bass/drums, added the riff outro which makes everyone happier. Just the overall performance of each song and how it was made more intense as time went on.

A great memory that I have from New York was seeing Matt look at me (my direction...) and smile. I smiled back and pointed, thinking he was only looking at me and noticed how I was having an amazing time.

Honestly, Wembley 2nd night. Given the night before's set and the lack of variety, I still can't believe they played the set they did. Incredible.

Only huge stand out for me, probably because I went though.

Sorry old quote I know. Your profile says you've only been to 2 shows, so how can that be?

Sorry, but it's just true.
The idea was the positives.
