Muse @ MSG 4/16/2013
I've seen Muse in concert many times before and they never disappoint. On their second of 2 sold out nights at New York's Madison Square Garden, despite feeling very under the weather, Muse did their jobs as rockstars and for two hours catapulted me into another time and space! Here are 10 reasons Muse are one of the best band ever.Though they're only a trio, Muse do not do "small." Their two shows at Madison Square Garden (4/15-16), as part of their North American tour, featured pyrotechnics, a giant pyramid of televisions and, of course, the just slightly over-the-top songs the band are known for. Their setlist and pictures from night 2 are in this post. They play the IZOD Center in New Jersey on Friday (4/19).
1. Non-stop stage action for two solid hours. This came in the form of great visuals, flashing lights and lead singer Matt Bellamy running all over the stage.
2. Great songs that rock. I mean, holy shit! Their songs rock. To see a stadium of people singing in unison to a Muse song instead of your typical stadium fare is awesome! People play it safe too often. Way too often. - [According2G]
Opening the shows were fellow UK rock act Biffy Clyro, who also played Coachella. Unfortunately for fans, the band have had to cancel the remainder of their North American dates (including weekend 2 of Coachella) as Simon Neil has been suffering from serious respiratory problems. Rest up, Simon. Pictures of Biffy Clyro's set and more of Muse below...
