Howard Donald injury[edit]

Early performances of the tour featured a "dance-off" routine by band members in the middle of the song "Sure". Band member Howard Donald suffered a cracked rib and a collapsed lung during this part of the 26 October show in Vienna.[3] His injuries caused him to miss seven shows and limited his performance in subsequent concerts. He rejoined the band at the 7 November Oberhausen show.[2]

DVD release[edit]

The O2 shows on 6 and 7 December 2007 were recorded. They were released on 25 February 2008 on a limited edition two-disc DVD set, Beautiful World Live, containing behind-the-scenes footage. A Blu-ray version was also released in 2008.
