Big Pink hope to 'do a Coldplay' by supporting Muse
Band aim to upstage headliners on November arena tour
The Londoners are set to join the Devon trio on their arena tour in November, and although they admit to being a bit "freaked out" to be playing the massive venues, they intend to use the shows as a launch pad.
"I remember seeing Muse when I was way, way younger and I'm pretty sure Coldplay were supporting and look what happened to them," Milo Cordell told NME.COM.
"We have never played somewhere so big in our lives, we are pretty freaked out by it. It's a long way from playing what we're used to, but we are psyched and are going to try to out-Muse Muse."
The band will play the following shows with Muse:
Sheffield Arena (November 4)
Liverpool Echo Arena (5)
Glasgow SECC (9)
Birmingham NIA (10)
London 02 Arena (12, 13)
The band who recently released debut album 'A Brief History Of Love' will also play their own headlining shows:
Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms (October 8)
Brighton Digital (9)
Oxford O2 Academy (10)
Coventry Kasbah (11)
Glasgow King Tuts (14)
Dublin Academy (15)
Belfast Airbreak (16)
York Duchess (17)
Leeds Cockpit (18)
Liverpool Academy 2 (20)
Manchester Academy (21)
London Electric Ballroom (22)
