MUSE HOLD COURT

The band play a stormer at Earl's Court....

MUSE opened their two-night stand at LONDON EARL’S COURT in dramatic style last night (December 19).

The band are rounding up the touring campaign for their ‘Absolution’ album – which saw them headline Glastonbury, T In The Park and V Festivals – with their biggest indoor shows to date.

Supported by The Secret Machines and [a][/a], the band played a set that took in their three albums.

Wearing a full-length red suit, frontman Matt Bellamy kept the talking to a minimum, simply saying “We’ve been Muse by the way. What can I say? Merry Christmas!”

As the band returned to the stage for the encore, a barrage of giant beach balls filled with balloons were fired into the crowd, before a shower of tickertape rained on the crowd during the final ‘Stockholm Syndrome’.

The setlist was:

’Hysteria’

’Butterflies And Hurricanes’

’Newborn’

’Sing For Absolution’

’Muscle Museum’

’Citizen Erased’

’Ruled By Secrecy’

’Sunburn’

’Thoughts Of A Dying Atheist’

’TSP’

’’Time Is Running Out’

’Plug-In Baby’

’Bliss’

’Dead Star’

’Micro Cuts’

’Apocalypse Please’

’Stockholm Syndrome’

The band return to Earl’s Court tonight.
