Check out the day-by-day breakdown of the line-up below:
Arcade Fire are currently gearing up to release their long-awaited and hotly-anticipated fifth album after dropping the anti-Trump comeback track ‘I Give You Power’, while Muse too have been in the studio working on new material where they are said to have recorded three new songs.
“There are moments that feel heavier than anything we’ve ever done, not that we’re the heaviest band in the world, but they have a finesse because of our experience,” said frontman Brandon Flowers. “There’s also really beautiful things. Lyrically, it’s really close to home.”
Speaking of new songs and titles, Flowers said: “There’s one called ‘Rut’ and we were all kind of excited about what was happening with that. Another is called ‘Run For Cover’ and that comes from ‘Day & Age’. so it’s eight-years-old. It started with Stuart Price and it still sort of has his stamp on it – but we’re funnelling it back through the band eight years later with a different producer.
“I never got the lyrics right and I think I’m gonna get it right this time. ‘Run For Cover’ looks like it’s got a good shot [of being on the album].”
He continued: “There’s one called ‘Tyson Vs Douglas’ [named after the 1990 Mike Tyson vs Buster Douglas boxing match]. I don’t know why but I think about it all the time and i finally tried to tackle it in a song, what it meant to have this hero of mine get torn down, and then everything that happened after that.”
