Muse add extra dates to 2016 UK arena tour

Band add additional gigs in London and Manchester to 'Drones' tour

Muse have added four extra dates to the UK leg of their upcoming ‘Drones’ tour.

The ‘Drones’ world tour will see the group play a number of arena dates in April 2016. Last week, frontman Matt Bellamy announced the new tour and told fans the band were hoping to build upon Pink Floyd’s famous The Wall Tour.

The Drones World Tour will see the band perform for the first time from the middle of the arena. The initial announcement of UK dates included gigs in Manchester, Glasgow and two nights in London. Further gigs in all three cities have now been confirmed after tickets went on sale this morning (September 18).

The band will now play additional shows in Manchester (April 9), London (April 14-15) and Glasgow (April 18). Dates in Italy, Spain, Portugal and Czech Republic have also been announced with more to follow.

In an exclusive interview with NME, the creative team behind the new stadium show have revealed further plans. Production designer Oli Metcalfe and tour director Glen Rowe expanded on Bellamy’s claims that there would be drones, promising “a whole swarm of drones” and a stage “like a double headed arrow”.

Manchester, Arena (April 8-9)
London, O2 Arena (April 11-12, 14-15)
Glasgow, SSE Hydro (April 17-18)
