Bloody hell. I know I’m old and don’t usually do these kind of things, but my husband & me adore Muse, so we always promised to book a gig when we got a chance. Last night we saw them at the o2 Arena. First time I’d been there and my first band gig since Ultravox back in the 80′s (I said I don’t do these things…)
I always knew that Muse were Rock Gods & musicians of extraordinary skill but damn, their ‘awesomeness’ was of epic proportions. The light & video show was perfect and Matt was on point vocally, at the keyboards and of course as Guitar God. Chris & Dominic shouldn’t be overlooked and were also spectacular.
The Playlist was as if they had looked in my favourites file and managed to include most, if not all, and of course much of the new album ‘Drones’ . Playlist featured most of the new album & the big numbers like Plug in Baby, Super Massive Black Hole, Hysteria, Starlight (I whooped as I had just finished a vid yesterday to this..) Finishing with Knights of Cydonia (next on the Muse fanvid list ) it was a perfect way to end.
Muse really live up to their name - they have been a source of inspiration for my vidding (Muse geddit?) with my using 4 of their songs to date with a few more on the ‘to do’ list. If you want to check them out clicky below:
