Muse have spoken to NME about their forthcoming performances at this weekend’s Reading and Leeds Festivals.
The band will be playing their 2001 album ‘Origin Of Symmetry’ in full at the festival. Matt Bellamy said that one of the reasons they’ve picked that album to play is because “it’s always been an album the hardcore fans have always talked about as one of their favourites, if not the favourite. So we wanted to play it for them as a celebration of the 10 years since it came out…”
The band have also promised to bring a brand new stage show and production to the festival, based around the 2001 album’s artwork and concept. “We’ll do whatever we can get away with within the restrictions of a festival stage,” explained Bellamy.
For the second half of the show, drummer Dom Howard said: “We’ll probably just do the old cheap encore and play a few hits!”
