Muse played live in Japan last night (August 12) at a gig described by drummer Dom Howard as the band's "funniest ever".

Howard posted pictures on Twitter of his drum kit surrounded by masked characters, explaining "The ol' chaps were causing a little stick trappage!" It is believed the band recorded their show at The Zepp in Tokyo for a future release, with filmmaker Tom Kirk confirming that he filmed the show alongside a colleague. Fan shot footage from the gig can be seen below, now.

"I say it "might be one of the most amazing Muse shows of all time"... But aren't they all...? (Good on em.) Therefore, it means #Everything," Kirk tweeted. Latter adding: "Ridiculously good gig! Panic station onwards in original costumes and a stage invasion of monsters. This will be made into a film. Myself and @qualtrough filmed the whole thing. #JapaneseRelease"

Tom Kirk is a long term collaborator with Muse and has directed music videos for singles including 'Stockholm Syndrome' as well as the band's live DVDs 'Hullabaloo' and 'Absolution'.

'Agitated'
