After taking out headline spot for this year’s Big Day Out tour, UK trio Muse are back, and this time with a killer stadium show.
I’m looking at it like this… they played Coachella and while they didn’t have the headline slot their set still included a massive lighting rig and a pyrotechnics show that would give the Harbour Bridge on NYE a run for its money (well not quite, but it was pretty impressive). So, given their own tour, in their own stadium we know the show will be epic.
Lead singer Matthew Bellamy has referenced George Orwell’s 1984 as an influence for the design of the set. This influence also surfaced during a Rolling Stones interview as inspiration, along with Nassium Nicholas Taleb’s 2007 Novel The Black Swan, for their most recent album The Resistance.
Muse have always been very musically ambitious and while their performances have been the same, this time around they have taken things to a whole new level. In a recent interview about Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever) and its place as the lead single for the third Twilight film Bellamy commented “You know the all seeing eye with a big eye-ball on top? It basically looks like that…It’s supposed to be a cross between that and George Orwell’s ministry from 1984 – we’ve got a chrome UFO”
Well, you can just see for yourself….
