Muse fans have started petition that calls for the band to play a special 20th anniversary gig.

The petition asks that the band play a small gig in their hometown of Teignmouth, where they formed in 1994, or in London. The petition states:

The fans would love to see Muse celebrate their 20th anniversary in style for 1 night only in the UK. Whether that be in their hometown of Teignmouth or a small venue in London. It's not every day a band can celebrate their 20 years together and while they are about to start recording their 7th album, it would be fun for both the Muse boys and their fans to play at a venue with no expensive productions involved.


Muse have said that they will start on their new album next month. Speaking to KROQ at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the band revealed their plan to start on the follow-up to their sixth album 'The 2nd Law' in May. Drummer Dom Howard commented: "We're going to start this year... (Coachella) is our last two gigs, then we're completely done for touring this album. We're going to go back in May and start working on some new stuff, so I think we'll start making it this year... If we can get something out this year, that would be great, but definitely next year."

Muse will play the second Coachella this Saturday (April 19). Speaking previously about their plans for the new album, Matt Bellamy said that he had already been writing, commenting: "I've written some good tracks, actually. We haven't had a chance to rehearse them out yet... I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we've experimented with on the last two albums, which is electronics, symphonics and orchestral work and all that kind of stuff."
