Muse frontman Matt Bellamy has appeared to suggest that the band will celebrate their 20th anniversary by embarking on a celebratory tour next year.

The band, who did not release their first album 'Showbiz' until 1999, first formed as teenagers in their hometown of Teignmouth in Devon in 1994. Posting on Twitter yesterday (August 15), Bellamy responded to fans who were asking him about the special gig they filmed in Tokyo, Japan, earlier this month when he dropped the hint about the birthday celebrations.

Referencing the Tokyo show, which saw drummer Dom Howard's drumkit surrounded by masked characters and was described as the funniest Muse gig ever by the drummer, Bellamy wrote the following:


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.

Earlier this year it was reported that Muse could branch out into politics by taking over the local council in their hometown of Teignmouth for one day. The band were believed to have held talks about the possibility of running the council for 24 hours in an attempt to engage younger voters in the region and help them take a greater interest in local politics.
