Dedication came during gig at Glasgow venue Barrowlands
Muse dedicated the song ‘Uprising’ to those who voted ‘Yes’ during the Scottish referendum in 2014 during their Glasgow gig last night (March 16).
The band continued their current tour of intimate UK venues with a show at Barrowlands in Glasgow on Monday evening. Frontman Matt Bellamy took time out of the set to dedicated the song, which first appeared on 2009 album ‘The Resistance’, to the people who voted for change in the make-up of Scotland’s political landscape last year.
Scotland voted to reject independence in 2014’s historic referendum. The then First Minister Alex Salmond’s Yes campaign received 45 per cent of the vote but was was victorious in four authorities, including Glasgow.
The gig saw Muse play the same setlist as the previous night in Belfast, with two new songs (‘Psycho’ and ‘Reapers’) both performed live among older fan favourites.
See below for a collection of tweets and pictures from fans at the gig discussing the dedication.
‘Plug In Baby’
‘Supermassive Black Hole’
‘Knights Of Cydonia’
