    I haven't had the time to check out the CD's or read through the book yet but Showbiz sounds great on vinyl. It's not a good basis for me to speak to the remastering because I've only ever heard the album digitally before. I can say that the sound is nice and clean. Some really hearty bass rumbles through the verses of Cave. Definitely more listenable than my old Showbiz CD. Falling Down sounded especially warm, full and bluesy. I kinda wish Muse had more songs in their catalogue with this feel. It looks real pretty on the turntable as well.

    So we’ve had our first crumb of news! ...buuuut unfortunately it makes this thread likely redundant for a good while since work on LP9 is apparently gonna start towards the end of this year, meaning we probably won’t see a release until mid-late 2021 💔 Anyway, let’s get this in early to quell the absolute torrent of posts I’m sure are just around the corner. Other than that, seems like we’ll be returning to the traditional album release format as opposed to the staggered one for ST but that’s all we know so far. No hint of a direction yet. I’m excited at least 😁

    I totally made sure to just try and tear that box in the most convoluted way I could. Also that first shot took me so long. I hanged my phone off of a mic stand.

    It's unfortunate cause I've not liked the look of the daylight shows for this setup.

    My thoughts are that he's going to expand his own signature line at the very least. Maybe offer further variation at different price levels. As for a bass series, no idea - especially since that one was a gift. Though the DH-1 was a gift too, and that's available to purchase. Do feel free to discuss the guitars themselves in the K&T thread too - only saying that since Bs has left us and there's far less content to say the least... Happy to leave this thread here since it's more about the company itself. Also, nice post from Tom Morello: Cheeky fun fact: the vinyl lettering on that guitar was made by our very own @musecasters and @rust_relic

    So I haven't really been on the board a lot, what's our current consensus on the tour/setlist so far? Personally I think the visual side hits it even further out of the park than previous tours, if that's possible. Also the setlists have been pretty banging considering it's the NA leg, but then again someone who doesn't rank ST as highly as I do probably isn't enjoying the sets so far.

    Matt's never going to stop referring to Oakland as San Francisco. I'll write more tomorrow but that was very fun.

    If the band are ever "embarrassed" of him and keep him off the tour blu-ray I will personally fight Matt.

    There's something about these medleys, especially the new jam, that feels like they're just speedrunning their early career. I'm conflicted in that I like getting snippets of good and rare songs but also it feels like such a cheap presentation of these songs.

    Aye, majorly fecking excited. This is looking like potentially being in their top 2 arena setups for me atm, so interested to see what the performers add. Looking forward to any and all debuts but it’s still gonna hurt seeing other people enjoy them months before me 😂

    Answers from Chris: How did you enjoy playing football with fans? Is it something you will consider doing again in the future? Definitely. It was great fun to get the fans involved. Although the problem was that more people turned up to watch than actually play. Will do it again sometime for sure. You've commented on the changing face of music releases and the decreasing relevance of albums. Part A: Would a piecemeal approach mean more frequent release of new music in the form of singles? Part B: Would you consider releasing the odd acoustic track in this manner? I don’t think you could ever rule anything out in the future. It’s very clear that the music industry has changed massively and I think artists have to adapt to that. If that means releasing more individual songs than albums then I think that’s fine. I do feel we will still do albums, but maybe not quite as frequently. Who knows. The whole industry changes so fast these days! Was it tough for you mentally to be so popular in Europe but then come to the U.S. and still be relatively unknown? Or did you kind of enjoy being able to have two different identities, so to speak? To be honest I quite liked it. One of my favourite tours was our first proper tour in the USA. We had just come off the back of the Absolution European arena tour and went into two months of playing small club shows in the USA. It was like experiencing being a new band again. There was something really refreshing about selling out Wembley Arena and struggling to sell 800 tickets in New York. When you complete an album do you ever feel like a song still needs to be edited or tweaked? If so, which ones? I don’t think a song is ever really finished. There are always things that could be done differently, but I think sometimes you just have to draw a line under things and move on. You could drive yourself crazy thinking about all of the things that could have been done better. It’s better to learn from things and try to do them better next time. What advice would you give to any young musicians trying to start a band or writing music? I’ve always said that the main reason to make music should always be for pure enjoyment. If a hobby can turn into a career than it’s fantastic, but even if it doesn’t you should still be able to enjoy the music making process. Any plans on recording or working on film scores? There are no solid plans at the moment. We still have a fair few gigs to do and after that I think we will take a bit of a break. If you had to do a show for people who have never heard about you which 5 songs you would choose to represent who you are as a band? Plug in Baby Stockholm Syndrome Knights of Cydonia Madness Uprising Muse have a large variety of music videos. Some have more imagery and seem to be taken more seriously than others. How much direction do the band members give for the videos and what is the filming process like? Do you guys enjoy making them in general? Are there any videos that stand out to you (from Muse or others) as well executed? Making videos has always been a pretty painful process if I’m honest. You spend most of the day sitting around waiting for something to happen. I think that’s why we did things like the Panic Station video. Something that we pretty much shot ourselves with some friends and had a good time doing. In terms of direction, I think sometimes Matt has a very strong idea as he may want something that ties into the meaning of the song. Other times we can be quite open to input from directors. Have the inner band relationships changed over time? Of so, in what way? Do they keep in contact when not on the road or in the studio? I think the relationships have changed a bit but only in the sense that we aren’t kids anymore. When we started we hung out a lot together, but as you get older and start to have families then you tend to spend more of your personal time away from the band. We spend so much time on the road together anyway. During Muse's early days, the band did acoustic renditions of their album songs. Do any of you think about doing any additional acoustic work in the future, or does the band feel that doing acoustic work is something that's already been experimented with enough? I think the only time we ever really did acoustic stuff was on our first couple of trips to the States. We used to do a fair few acoustic sets at various radio stations. The last acoustic set we did was for Jo Whiley on the radio the morning after headlining Docklands Arena. It was a bit of a mess if I remember rightly and from that point onwards we never really did them.

    Ooohhh. It’s real! Guess I finally gotta get myself a record player. And a CD player too, now that I think of it.

    Yeah this is definitely true. You could always get a file from someone else, but it will have to be played to match how it's written. Plus if you need to go in and fix something that doesn't sound quite right, it could become a bit tricky. I've learned so much about DAWs and MIDI from writing this file as well, so it's worth it in a way.

    Ich fand das Konzert richtig toll und ich war auch mit meinem Platz zufrieden (erste Reihe im zweiten Abschnitt). Der Kritik mit der Setlist kann ich mich nur anschließen. Ich hätte ja eigentlich gedacht, dass sie zumindest Undisclosed Desires spielen, weil wir Deutschen es ja so lieben (laut Matt).

    It should be even better indoors as we won't be waiting for the sun to go down. At London and Bristol it just seemed to go to another level when it was darker. Can't wait again!!

    The normal setup there is the queue forms in the Rio Tinto Court, which is the open area on the North/North-east side (between the Bell Centre and the old Windsor Station). The entrance itself is about half way down the building, and the line tends to form heading towards Avenue des Canadiens de Montreal. It's outside, but there is a substantial overhang from the building itself, so there is some shelter right along the wall. The line will eventually start snaking back and forth further out, but from my experience that doesn't usually happen until closer to doors open. If you're there any time earlier in the day you'll be along the wall and under the overhang. Only two times I've been there were much better weather. I was out there for Radiohead last summer, which was a gorgeous day, though it rained really briefly in the afternoon - the overhang kept us covered from that. I was there for Muse on the T2L tour and queued from ~10am. That show was only a few weeks later (mid April), but it was much nicer weather than this weekend looks to be. One issue we ran into though was that being on the shaded side of the building through mid-day and afternoon, it got pretty chilly - out in the sun it was gorgeous (the shade had the opposite effect last summer - gave shelter on a hot July day). I'm also a bit worried about how Saturday is going to go. You're absolutely right, the weather forecast does look pretty abysmal right now, and I'm not exactly thrilled with the idea of spending hours and hours outside in near freezing temps and whatever mix of snow and rain ends up coming down. Again, the overhang will help provide some shelter, but not much from the cold. I am curious if anyone else here has experience with going to any winter or messy early spring shows there.

    Which one is it then, though? ‘Cos with Drones the criticism was that they weren’t doing enough with the time they had, and now it’s that they’re doing too much and rushing. They’ve always been the kind of band to shut up and get on with it and, with such an elaborate production, they’ll have had to keep things v tight timing-wise. I think the fact they’re squeezing so much in is great, they’ve really listened and tried their best to fill the set out with more of their own stuff imo.

    I showed up 2-3 hours early (I think) to the show in Austin back in 2017 and was able to get almost to the barrier. I had one or two people in front of me and I was standing in front of Matt’s microphone. I also had vip for that concert so we got to go in 15-30 minutes before the rest of the GA people went in but they did it in groups for some reason. Not sure if that’s how it’ll be this time around or if they’ll just let us all go at once. Most venues let you in with a closed water bottle. I would take one just in case because it can get pretty hot down there

    You know, I wouldn't necessarily see that as a bad thing, to be honest. There's no need for them to make stratospheric numbers or cater to a specific kind of audience to be great. EDIT: That is, not more than they've already done, I mean.

    Since the Drones tour, Psycho’s repetitiveness and length has really caught up to it and is sharply turning into one of my least fave staples. Even enjoy TIRO more and maybe, maybe, Knights at this point.
