Matt Bellamy has revealed that Muse's tour will be their equivalent of 'The Wall', the 1980 Pink Floyd tour which saw the band bricked up behind a giant, white wall that was built live onstage.

Speaking about the band's forthcoming world stint, singer Matt Bellamy told CBS local, "I think it's going to be our best tour so far. It’s like our version of 'The Wall'," making reference Pink Floyd’s 1979 double album and subsequent tour.

He added: "We've built this upside down pyramid structure which is full of video screens. Throughout the gig, it gradually comes down and consumes the band. So we end up eaten up by this pyramid thing, which is all very symbolic, of course. We blast out of it and escape. It's going to be a big experience. This is our Stonehenge tour!"

The band will kick of their global trek later this month (October 16) in France. They will play London's O2 arena later on in the month on October 26 and 27. Drummer Dom Howard previously revealed that the stage set-up would also include aliens and kung-fu.

Muse knocked Mumford and Sons from the top of the UK Official Album Chart on Sunday (October 7) with their new album, 'The 2nd Law'. The Devon trio's sixth album shifted 108,000 copies in its first week of release, making it the fourth fastest-selling album of the year so far.
