Muse launched the world tour in support of their 2012 album ‘The 2nd Law‘ in Montpellier, France last night (October 16th), giving fans a first glimpse of the much-vaunted ‘Pyramid’ stage prop in the process.
The band mixed firm fan favourites with material taken from their new album, and unveiled the ‘Pyramid’ after a rendition of the highly charged modern rock classic ‘Hysteria‘ and immediately before ‘Supermassive Black Hole‘. The huge visual complex can be seen fleetingly via the fan video below.
Muse have made no secret of the grand ambitions for their new tour, which will hit the UK at the end of this month, with frontman Matt Bellamy being quoted at CBS Local as saying:
“I think it’s going to be our best tour so far. It’s like our version of The Wall. We’ve built this upside down pyramid structure which is full of video screens.”
