Muse make live comeback in Cologne

Space-rockers preview 'The 2nd Law' at their first show in over a year

Muse debuted new tracks at their live comeback in Cologne last night (September 20).

The space rockers played their first live show since last year’s headline appearance at Reading Festival with a show at the 2000-capacity E-Werk venue, where they gave the first airing to tracks from their sixth album ‘The 2nd Law’.

As well as recent single ‘Madness’ and Olympic theme ‘Survival’, they band played new tracks ‘Supremacy’, ‘Panic Station’, ‘Animal’, ‘Save Me’ and ‘Follow Me’.

After the show, drummer Dominic Howard told NME: “The new stuff went down well, and we were nervous of course. For the first gig back you’re like, ‘fucking hell, how do we do this again?’ But then we just relax into it, settle in and you look forward to the next one.”

Muse played:

‘Panic Station’
‘Supermassive Black Hole’
‘Time Is Running Out’
‘Save Me’
‘Follow Me’
‘Plug In Baby’
‘Knights Of Cydonia’
‘Stockholm Syndrome’
