As the final night of the tour in Manchester closed for Muse, they left fans hinting that an announcement might be made with new tour on the horizon. Matt Bellamy announced the following on instagram“We’ve had such a great time in the U.K. we wanna come back for more. Stay tuned for a major announcement about UK shows on Monday June 10th.”
Prior to this news, and having already performed at Wembley Stadium a few days prior to the Manchester show, the Devon rock heavyweights delivered the kind of massive performance that their fans not only demand but have come to expect from Matt Bellamy and Co these days. The sci-fi themed show is suitably over the top and, while for some bands these kind of spectacles divert your attention from the fact that the artist in question hasn’t the material to back it up, this is most definitely not the case with Muse. For twenty-five years now, the band have been producing the kind of material that had them destined to fill venues of this magnitude from day one.
Opening the show for Muse were strong performances from Manchester’s Pale Waves who, after a great 2018, seem to be going from strength to strength in 2019 and Tom Morello guitarist with the legendary LA rap-rock heavyweights Rage Against The Machine.
