Muse’s Glastonbury headline set will be inspired by Tetris

Due to drones being banned at this year's event

Muse have revealed that their Glastonbury Festival headline set will be inspired by classic puzzle video game Tetris.

The British band will play the Pyramid Stage tonight (Friday, June 24), ahead of headline sets from Adele and Coldplay on Saturday (June 25) and Sunday (June 26) respectively.

Frontman Matt Bellamy told The Sun that the band have had to find new inspiration due to Glastonbury’s ban on drones, which they usually utilise as part of their live show.

Bellamy went on to add: “I’m somewhat introverted. Introverts probably have a higher degree of outside stimulus and tend to back off.

“Even now, I would probably be more inclined to just play the guitar and look at Dom (Howard, drummer) and Chris (Wolstenholme, bassist), rather than face the audience, but that’s not really an option.”

“Those big productions helped push me out of my comfort zone. There’s an element of the band that’s been a great personal journey for me, coming out of my shell.”


Bellamy recently said that something will inevitably go wrong during the band’s Glastonbury headline show.

The singer told The Daily Telegraph: “Really, the stage is not yours. There are so many components that are unpredictable and out of your control. So there’s no-one to blame if anything goes wrong – which it will.”
