Another nod to the band came later in the set when they worked a brief instrumental cover of ‘Zero’ from ‘Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness’ into their ‘15 minutes of metal’ medley – as debuted last week at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Following a huge show at Wembley earlier this year, Smashing Pumpkins will return to the UK to perform at Download Festival 2019.
Looking ahead to next year, Muse have teased that their upcoming tour will be heavily choreographed and inspired by David Byrne.
