Muse debut new material and stage show as ‘Drones’ world tour begins in Mexico – watch

Band performed at Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City last night (November 17)

Muse began their world tour in Mexico last night, debuting songs from 2015 album ‘Drones’ as well as an ambitious new stage show.

The band’s setlist at Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City last night leaned heavily ‘Drones’ with ‘The Globalist’ and new single ‘Revolt’ both played live for the first time. Footage from the gig and a full setlist can be seen below.

Matt Bellamy of the band recently compared their new live set-up to Pink Floyd’s famous ‘The Wall’ Tour. “It’s our version of ‘The Wall’, basically,” Muse’s frontman told BBC Radio 2. He also promised there would be “a whole swarm of drones” and a stage “like a double- headed arrow”, both of which appeared in Mexico.


The tour sees the band perform for the first time ‘in the round’ from the middle of the arena. This stage design and configuration gives fans a 360 degree audio/visual sensory experience.
