MUSE PLAY ‘BEST EVER’ GIG!

The band close the music on the Pyramid Stage with a blinding set...

MUSE brought GLASTONBURY to a triumphant close last night (June 27).

The UK space-rock champions played their highest profile gig ever to a rapturous reception as they graduated to the same headline status as legendary acts like Oasis and Paul McCartney.

Singer Mat Bellamy was quiet during the gig, choosing to let their apocalyptic music do the talking.

Yet before the final song ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ he declared, “This has been the best gig of our lives.”

Contarary to rumour, the band did not stage a collaboration with the English National Opera, who appeared on the same stage at lunchtime performing Wagner’s ‘The Ride Of The Valkyries’.

The setlist was:

‘Hysteria’

‘Newborn’

‘Sing For Absolution’

‘Citizen Erased’

‘Apocalypse Please’

‘Screenager’

‘Sunburn’

‘Butterflies and Hurricanes’

‘Bliss’

‘Time Is Running Out’

‘Plug-In Baby’

‘Blackout’

‘Stockholm Syndrome’
