Muse, No Doubt and American pop star Taylor Swift will perform live at this year's MTV European Music Awards.

They are the first three acts to be confirmed to take the stage at the ceremony, which takes place in Frankfurt on November 11 and will be hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum.

Muse released their sixth studio album 'The 2nd Law' this week. It includes new singles 'Madness' and 'Survival' as well as dubstep-influenced track 'The 2nd Law: Unsustainable'. The 13-track album is the follow-up to 2009's 'The Resistance' and has been recorded in London.

Earlier this week, Muse drummer Dom Howard revealed the band gave Chris Wolstenholme an ultimatum in order to force the bassist to sort his excessive drinking habit.

Howard said: "For some reason he could still play the bass, even though he was shitfaced. He was drinking on stage. I started counting how many drinks he was having during the set and I could see him getting more and more glazed. By the point we came off stage he'd be fucked. It just got too weird."

The Devon trio will tour the UK later this month, playing five shows. The gigs begin at Glasgow's SECC on October 24, before the band move onto London's O2 Arena for two shows on October 26 and 27. They then play Birmingham LG Arena on October 30 before finishing up at Manchester Arena on November 1.
