Muse are planning on enlisting a full orchestra and choir for a typically bombastic performance of ‘Supremacy‘ at next month’s Brit Awards.
Muse hit the road today for an extensive run of U.S. dates. Kicking off tonight in San Diego, CA at Valley View Casino Center, the tour will wrap up on March 7th in Minneapolis, MN. The UK trio is touring in support of their sixth album The 2nd Law, which was nominated for two 2013 Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album and Best Rock Song (“Madness”). Read Live4ever’s review of “The 2nd Law” here and check out the tour dates below.
Muse have unveiled the video for the latest single to be taken from their 2012 album ‘The 2nd Law‘, which can be viewed via YouTube below.
Muse have been forced to cancel Scandinavian tour dates in Oslo, Stockholm and Malmo after frontman Matt Bellamy broke his foot.
Muse will perform four UK stadium shows next year which are part of an ambitious European outdoor tour.
Muse have said they will continue to do all they can to keep ticket prices relatively low after The Rolling Stones came in for criticism regarding the cost of their London and New Jersey comeback gigs, which could setback fans as much as £900.
Muse were crowned as the Best Act In The World Today ahead of Coldplay, Lady Gaga, The Stone Roses and Blur, while Blur picked up the Best Live gong, beating fellow nominees The Cribs, Radiohead, Bruce Springsteen and The Stone Roses in the process.
“It’s been the most incredible year for British music. Our bands and our anthems transformed the Olympics into the greatest music event on earth,” Q editor Andrew Harrison said when the shortlist was unveiled last month.
