Muse to release 'Muse - Live At Rome Olympic Stadium' concert film in November

The film will air for just two nights globally later this year

Muse will release their concert film Muse - Live At Rome Olympic Stadium, July 2013 this November.

The film will be released in 4K, otherwise known as Ultra High Definition, which equals 8.8 million pixels, four more times than the current cinema industry standard. 20 cinemas in 20 global cities, including Sydney, London, Los Angeles, Rome, Tokyo, Paris and Rio, will stage an advance screening of the movie on November 5 and on November 7 the film will be screened in 100 cinemas worldwide.

Speaking about the film, which was filmed in front of a 60,000 capacity crowd this summer and features performances of the songs 'Uprising', 'Supermassive Black Hole', 'Time Is Running Out' and 'Plug In Baby', the band have said: "This is the biggest tour we've done in terms of scale and production value and it's definitely the show we're most proud of so we're really excited to be able to release it as the first ever ultra high definition concert film. It captures an extraordinary amount of detail and not just everything we're doing - the fans, even those at the back, the set, the actors and the incredible atmosphere on a very special night in Rome. We can promise our fans, whether they managed to come to the live shows or not, an entirely new Muse concert experience."

Muse frontman Matt Bellamy recently suggested 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, Bellamy responded to fans who were asking him about the special gig they filmed in Tokyo, Japan, when he dropped the hint about the birthday celebrations. He wrote: "Hey, relax, that's just a rehearsal for our 20-year anniversary tour!"
