Muse considering playing ‘smaller venues’ after Wembley Stadium shows

Matt Bellamy says that new material will be 'more personal'

Muse‘s Matt Bellamy has said that he is thinking about writing a “more personal” music project following the band’s recent epic albums and shows.

The band are set to play Wembley Stadium on Friday and Saturday (September 10 and 11), but the singer/guitarist has said that, after those shows, he will work on material that would be more fitting for smaller venues.

“I feel like we can’t go much bigger in terms of the kinds of concerts we’re playing,” he told Time Out. “Weirdly, that seems to have coincided with my personal life destabilising about a year ago. I split from a relationship… I was doing lots of self-analysing.”

He added: “I sense that that’s going to lead to a writing project that will be more personal, rather than talking about grand political concerns. That itself might lead to material that’s more suitable for smaller venues.”

Muse opened their UK tour, playing the Lancashire County Cricket Club’s Old Trafford ground last Saturday (September 4).
