Muse will play a gig at the Electric Ballroom venue in London tonight (September 11).

Earlier today the band announced plans for the ‘Drones World Tour’, which will include a host of UK arena dates in April 2016. However, before they perform the large scale dates they will perform at the 1,100 capacity venue in Camden, north London.

Tickets are priced £20 each and are available on a first come, first served basis from 3pm today at the venue. Fans can purchase one ticket per person and doors are open from 7pm.


Frontman Matt Bellamy confirmed the news of the UK tour on BBC Radio 2 this morning, saying the tour would feature the “most elaborate production we’ve done” and would include “lots of flying things… and real military drones”.

Bellamy also stated that the live show would be “performed in the round”, adding, “it’s our version of The Wall, basically”.

‘The Drones World Tour’ will see the band perform for the first time in the round from the middle of the arena. The UK dates include gigs in Manchester, Glasgow and two nights in London. Dates in Italy, Spain, Portugal and Czech Republic have also been announced with more to follow.
