Muse's Matt Bellamy has said that the band have had "real" discussions about the possibility of playing a gig in space.

The frontman said that although his plan seemed rather ambitious, he hoped that technology would allow the Devon three-piece a shot at performing a show in orbit one day.

"We've had some discussions about playing in space," he told The Sun. "Sometimes very coherent conversations and sometimes very late at night, but it's for real."

Bellamy explained that although the trio hadn't started any astronaut training quite yet, he had started thinking about ways of going about getting the gig off the ground.

"I'm thinking of approaching Richard Branson to see if we could do it on his [Virgin Galactic] spacecraft he's got happening," he said. "Although we do have a lot of equipment, so I guess we'd have to use pods to carry our stuff and we'd scale back the shows a lot."

He added: "I do think it will be possible in the future and I'm sure it will happen in my lifetime. We'd love to be part of that."
