"We're going to come up with something that no one's ever seen before"

Muse have announced details of their upcoming 2019 UK, Europe and US stadium tour tour.

Having dropped the Terry Crews-starring new ‘Back To The Future’ themed video for new single ‘Pressure‘ last month, the band will release their eighth album ‘Simulation Theory‘ this week on November 9.

Now, the band have announced that they’ll be playing two huge shows in London and Manchester as part of a wider world stadium tour.

Announcing the gigs, the band said: “The ‘Simulation Theory’ World Tour will feature an exciting new Enhanced Experience Package that allows access to an exclusive Mixed Reality Pre-Show Party, powered by Microsoft, with three original virtual reality games, inspired by tracks from Simulation Theory.  Additional Enhanced Experience perks include a premium concert ticket, show specific poster, interactive photo experience with props and memorabilia from the band’s latest videos and more.”

Speaking to NME backstage after their VO5 NME Awards 2018 win for Best Festival Headliner, frontman Matt Bellamy said: “We’re going to do the biggest tour and just blow people’s minds with stuff they’ve never seen before.”

He continued: “We’re going to come up with something that no one’s ever seen before. We’re always interested in the latest technology and what’s cutting edge, so we’re always thinking of the new thing that nobody’s ever used before in a concert. And we found something and we’re going to use that.”

Produced by Rich Costey, Mike Elizondo, Shellback and Timbaland, ‘Simulation Theory’ is due for release on November 9, 2018. Here’s everything we know about the album.
