Muse plan ‘Nirvana-inspired’ tour documentary

Bassist Chris Wolstenholme wants to make something 'like Nirvana's Live! Tonight! Sold Out!'

Muse have announced plans to make a Nirvana-inspired tour documentary.

The band, who have released various live DVDs throughout their career – including 2005’s Absolution Tour and 2008’s H.A.A.R.P. – have revealed they would like to make something a bit different, reports Triple J.

“We’d like to something a little bit more along the lines of a touring documentary as opposed to just a live gig this time,” bassist Chris Wolstenholme told the station.

He added: “Something a little bit more like Nirvana‘s Live! Tonight! Sold Out!. I think that was one of the best tour documentaries I’ve ever watched; just life on the road and what it’s like, with obviously a bit of music here and there, and other loads of other random stuff as well.”

Currently in Australia to play the Big Day Out festival, Muse will head out on a tour of North America at the end of February.
