Muse have confirmed that they will play Bristol in 2019, after fans feared their tour dates were limited to London and Manchester.
The band initially listed Bristol among the cities that they were planning to visit when they hit the road next year as part of their 2019 UK tour plans. And yet, only shows in London and Manchester were announced.
Now, it’s been confirmed that the band will head to Bristol’s Ashton Gate stadium on June 5. You can buy tickets here from 9AM on Friday December 7.
It comes after Bellamy announced on Instagram that Muse will be playing Bristol’s 27,000 seater stadium. He also name-checked a few of Bristol’s famous residents, including J.K. Rowling, Cary Grant, Massive Attack, Portishead, Banksy and, well, Noel Edmonds.
The post read: “We checked all West Country options and Bristol is the only venue that can take our production, so we’re now very pleased to announce we will be playing in the birth home of J.K. Rowling, Cary Grant, Massive attack, Portishead, Banksy and comedy legends Johhny Ball, Noel Edmonds and Stephen Merchant! #ashtongate”.
Muse had initially responded to disappointed fans over their scrapped Bristol gig, teasing they might be headed back to native Devon.
The rock band shot straight to Number One in the UK albums chart with their eighth album ‘Simulation Theory’ last month. Six of Muse’s eight studio albums have now gone to Number One in the UK, according to the Official Charts Company.

In a four star review, NME described the record as “a retreat from the real world and into a ‘Tron’-style pastiche of their own adolescence.”
