Muse have announced details of their brand new live concert movie for their Drones World Tour. Check out the first trailer below.
One of their most ambitious stage productions to date, the film was shot at a number of the band’s arena and stadium shows for their album ‘Drones’ throughout 2016.
The latest in Muse’s history of celebrated and acclaimed live concert films, the Drones World Tour movie promises “never-before-seen special effects, perfectly complimenting the awe inspiring level of creative stage production Muse fans have come to expect, ensuring the ultimate audio / visual sensory experience”.
“The symbiosis between humanity and technology has always been something I am interested by,” said frontman Matt Bellamy of the concept. “Drones just seem to be a very interesting modern metaphor for what that represents…You want to leave people with the idea that they ask the question themselves about the role of technology in our lives and whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing.”
Marc Allenby, CEO of Trafalgar Releasing added: “We’re delighted to be working on this innovative and unforgettable show from Muse, a group that time and again illustrate that they are one of the world’s best live bands. The concert film deserves to be seen in the best possible way, in cinemas on the big screen together with other Muse fans. We look forward to collaborating with the band, their management team and label across this release.”
Drones World Tour hits cinemas worldwide on July 12 for one night only. Tickets will be available on May 3. For tickets and more information, visit here.
“We’ve been working on a lot of new music,” frontman Matt Bellamy told NME, “we’re going to release more new songs this year, working towards an album which will come out some time soon.”
