    Happy 20th Anniversary for one of my Top Five favourite MUSE tracks! Merci to @MuseFrance for the reminder. 'Bliss' made its debut live performance 20 years ago today on 18 August 2000 at the Bizarre Music Festival in Weeze, a small German town northwest of Düsseldorf. Coldplay was also on the same bill earlier that day. Nineteen years later MUSE performed in front of 65,000 fans at Goffertpark in Nijmegen located about 40 km from Weeze across the border with the Netherlands and the river Maas (French: Meuse). Peak chart positions in 2001: #22 UK; #40 Netherlands; and #87 France Number of career live performances: 527 which is the 11th most played song in the band's discography during their worldwide tours First performance in the USA: Bowery Ballroom, NYC in April 2004 after the earlier show at the Cotton Club in Atlanta GA was shortened due to Matt cutting his upper lip on the neck of his guitar during CE Official music video: 35 million views on YouTube which is the 14th most streamed MUSE video on that platform Best live performances: Reading Festival (2011) and Mayan Theatre, Los Angeles (2015) I was fortunate to finally see the band perform it live at the London Stadium Simulation Theory tour gig a year ago on 1 June Video of the first performance:

    Honestly I was never a big fan of Unintended to begin with. I like the instrumentation here, but Matt's soft voice is very hit and miss these days. The cover of We'll Meet Again that he uploaded works so, so well and I'm very excited for a full cover. This however? Probably won't really listen to it again, much like Tomorrow's World.

    Thought i'd try to start a thread for some general gig chatter for memories, experiences and photos but wanted to start it off with this... if you could have one uncut, pro sound recording of a full Muse show which one would it be and why? Also, off of the back of this can we start a petition for muse to release the audio of each of their shows like Metallica have been doing for years.

    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 😁

    +1 to all of that. All style, no substance any more. The mix is atrocious too, why is the volume so inconsistent? It sounds like every time the bass comes in, the volume of every other instrument kicks up a notch too, with the bass disappearing. The cymbals are almost unlistenably trebly too. I barely got to the end of Psycho before I had a headache from the cymbal crashes. You can barely hear Matt's guitar in Break It To Me either. Muse used to be exciting with minimal bells and whistles. Now they've got every bell and whistle they want, yet the shows are duller than they've ever been. I, for one, am delighted the dire Simulation Theory era is over. The boxset absolutely takes the piss too. Burn it all down. Start again.

    Glad I spent £4:50 renting this rather than spending £100+ on tickets and travel . Simulation Theory pretty much stands as an indictment on Muse's stadium tours. It just seems like more effort went into Matt's jacket design than the music itself. So many songs are now just Matt walking around stage pretending to be a popstar. Matt does really have zero stage presence when his guitar is removed. Watching Matt slap hands with the front row while being minded by his handler is just next level cringe you'd expect from your one directions of the world. The visuals here are just boring as well. When Matt finally does something cool with his guitar, the camera is more interested in the stage extras doing distracting coordinated dance moves. Also Murph looked so inanimate in this movie, I've seen a few YouTube clips where we seemed to move with more fluidity. Not sure why this is letterboxed either, a Muse show is something where you want to use the whole screen. This probably should have been 60 FPS to give a bit more motion. And I really hope they didn't spend too much money on cgi Matt Bellamy pretending to be Harry Potter taking on Murph because that looked fake and cringe as shit. And somehow they want people to fork out £120 for a package with extra tat. I can't help but think of Muse as business people rather than musicians. One enjoyable part was he video for the Void because there was no visuals, no dancers and no fucking backing tracks.

    - SPOILERS IN GENERAL - Finally watched it. It was actually a pretty enjoyable little cheesy movie. I enjoyed the rather ridiculous narrative to complement the actual snippets of narrative that I saw on the stage. The editing, as far as the band shots were concerned, were fine. I didn't like the slow motion but for the most part it was straightfoward edits which is welcome after Rome's constant showing-off for a non-existent 4k release and Drones' need to make artificial shakes on every kick drum. It helps the stage design was just beautiful and a little color correcting makes the stage pop even more. Makes me regret even more we never got a film for the Resistance stadium tour. How might it have looked with the same filming... The narrative intercuts during the songs were a hit or miss for me. Personally, I would have liked to just have seen the band play but I also knew this wasn't just a concert recording and was also finishing up their whole Simulation Theory narrative. When it was present but not too intrusive it was fine, like during Thought Contagion. Some other times I could have done with less of it. Maybe the biggest offender was during Supermassive Black Hole where there's a long panning shot of a CGI arcade machine with the actual footage you want to see in the display window, reduced to only 5% of the screen. But anyways, the benefit of them playing (almost) the same show everywhere is that I can always go to the Rock in Rio or Argentina show recordings if I want no narrative. I wish they didn't chop up the metal medley since it's a collection of chopped up songs already. It is mostly on digital release so I don't think a bit of extra time wouldn't hurt (same with Knights). The whole final showdown against Murph was good fun though. The whole conflict also created a wonderfully unintentionally comic moment after Take A Bow where the narrator asks something like "who will the challenger be" and it's Matt standing awkwardly in his light up suit. Like I was half hoping she'd say "nah, can't be this guy".

    I see this as a home recording, not really a single or official release, and in that context I find the voice and recording quality endearing. I don't see it as an attempt to change or improve the original song, but more like a social media post sharing what he's playing around with and what resonates with him emotionally at the moment.

    Im not sure if its just me but it sounds like the vocals are a bit too loud or something, overall i like it, the piano instrumental is stunning. Could do without the annunciation of the 'Oohs' at the end but yeah, overall not bad!

    Yeah tbh I prefer the instrumental version. Matt's young voice on Showbiz is better suited to the song imo. But still cool to hear a piano version. Hopefully we'll get some more of these stripped-down covers.

    Genuinely kinda staggered by the sense of entitlement. Don’t really know where to begin. It’s literally 4 free videos of a silly performance that they’re putting out as a one-off because people have been asking to see it for 7 years and they thought it’d lift spirits a bit. If someone you knew made you a small gift during a rough time, would you also pick that apart because you wanted something bigger or something specific and pass it off as “sharing my opinion that I don’t like what you’re doing”? Don’t really see what OOM has to do with anything at all either? It’s the only thing like that that they’ve ever done and has a hell of a lot in it so...yeah, it’s not gonna be cheap, idk what to tell ya. It’s also not exactly extortionate. They’re hardly the first to do limited edition collector’s items either, and they did put out more when it initially sold out. You suggest putting out another version for £60 but that’s still massively expensive for a music release, so you’d effectively be asking “would you like to pay the high price or the even higher price?” Sure, you can wish Muse put out more gig content than Christmas presents and concert films every few years. Most of us have asked for that at some point in the past. But, in reality, they put out about as much as (if not more) than the average band. But this really shouldn’t be the thing you choose to voice that gripe over. Radiohead are one band, they do a lot of things other band’s don’t and they’ve also literally only just started this public library thing. The gigs they’ve streamed on YT, tmk, are also pretty standard gigs. The board’s dead anyway, at least until the next major release (hopefully). Stuff like this ain’t gonna revive it. For the record, I don’t even wanna watch the footage myself, but moaning that it’s not good enough for one reason or another is just unnecessarily wanky right now imo.

    I am not sure but it feels like the tv-version is a bit edited from the cinema version. Since it was some time ago I watched it in the cinema I might be wrong but here is what I feel is different. When I watch it in a cinema in Stockholm they had signs warning about the "flashing" lights in the movie (epileptic seizures) Those scenes seems to be edited away. I read that you felt that the atmosphere wasn't capture in the TV-version and I have to agree a bit to that. I saw the concert movie in a new movie theater in Stockholm with absolute state-of-art sound (dolby atmos) and picture (HFR high frame rate). Compare that to a 720p tv-version and you lose a lot, specially in t he sound. In the cinema I almost felt that the audience sounded to much 😁 . Just a some thoughts I have.. or maybe we both just have waited to long to see the concert at home and our expectations are to high after all waiting. I have attached some pictures from Stockholm 11 June 2016 Thank for the link to the video I really appreciate it 🙏

    MUSE and UK Prime Minister CHURCHILL Connections - Brighton and Moltrasio "We lived in Brighton for most of 2002," Matt Bellamy declares to a howling south coast crowd. "It's like a cooler Teignmouth," he chuckles, with a nod to Muse's hometown. "We lived in Churchill's house and wrote most of Absolution here - it got a bit weird." - As quoted in a Gigwise.com feature article on the band's show at the Brighton Dome on 23 March 2015 Historical notes: Churchill attended a preparatory school for three years in nearby Hove in the mid 1880s and visited Brighton several times during his career including an early election campaign appearance in 1910, inspecting the defences with Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery in the summer of 1940 at the onset of WWII, in 1947 receiving a freedom award, and lastly in 1952. The video for 'Dead Star' directed by Tom Kirk and costing only £50 was reportedly filmed in a basement cellar in Brighton during their time spent in this seaside resort located 76km south of London. B-Side track 'The Groove' which Matt claims was an early version of 'SMBH' may also have been written there. Dom Howard also later participated in the London to Brighton charity bike ride in 2005. Absolution became the band's first album to reach #1 on the album charts in the United Kingdom and France and the first album to chart on the Billboard 200 album chart in the United States. It has been certified Platinum and/or Gold in ten different markets (UK, US, Canada, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and Russia) and also gave the band its first top ten single 'Time Is Running Out' in the UK and first charted singles 'TIRO' and 'Hysteria' on the American alternative rock radio airplay charts. The Resistance was mostly written and recorded in Moltrasio, Lombardy, Italy from 2007-2009. Winston Churchill vacationed there in September 1945 after his general election defeat and it inspired his famous Lakeside Scene, Lake Como oil-on-canvas painting.

    I just hope that there's some room in this for a few straightforward performances of songs. I mean, I watch a concert film because I want to see the songs performed like at a gig. This is obviously not that but the trailer makes me think it's the total opposite, more of a movie with just pieces of performances spliced in. I guess we'll find out soon...

    Cover Songs Performed by Matt Bellamy - First and Latest - 29 Year Span June 1991 - Teignmouth Community College, Devon (UK) - A short excerpt of his performance can be viewed on YouTube 'What'd I Say' - Ray Charles (#6 US Billboard Hot 100 Peak Chart Position in 1959) - Cover versions by several artists including Elvis Presley have also charted, while The Beatles played this song at their Reeperbahn gigs in Hamburg, Germany in the early 60s and Mick Jagger sang it with the band that would become the Rolling Stones. "Piano was the first instrument I really played. I didn’t have any lessons, and though I tinkered with it since I was five, I didn’t really get interested until I was ten or 11. My dad used to play a lot of blues records, Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder. Ray Charles was the one that stuck out; I used to work on my left hand to 'What’d I Say' in sort of this boogie-woogie style. I spent ages working that out, practicing the left hand doing one thing and trying to do chords with the right hand. I went into a talent contest and played a solo version of that piece and actually won the contest. My older brother forced me into this talent contest and, though I was too nervous to do it, I did it anyway. It made me want to get out there and get some gigs and get in a band. When I first got into a band when I was about 13 or 14, I didn’t play piano for about six years because I just got so into the guitar." - Matt Bellamy Source: Innocence_and_Absolution_(200506_Keyboard_Magazine_article) June 2020 - Recorded in Los Angeles, California and posted last week on Matt's Instagram account [See Claudia O's post on the News/Muse on Social Media forum for the link to hear his performance] 'We'll Meet Again' - Vera Lynn (#55 UK Official Singles Peak Chart Position in 2020; #29 US Billboard Peak Chart Position in 1954; Recorded in 1939) Fun Fact: The Resistance by MUSE debuted at #1 on the UK Official Albums Chart on 20 September 2009 selling 148k copies replacing the compilation album We'll Meet Again - The Best of Vera Lynn which moved down one position to #2 after reaching the #1 spot the previous week.

    I will never understand this board's aversion to the 'flow' of Absolution. I'd put it on par with OOS as the best Muse album for flow. Showbiz doesn't really have a flow of any sort, and the rest are horrible. BH&R, T2L and ST are janky as hell. I mean, TaB, Starlight, SMBH, Map, Soldier's Poem, Invincible, Assassin, Exo is excruciatingly shonky, although CoD, Hoodoo and Knights is tres nice. Where do you even start with the flow of T2L? The flow of Absolution is also greatly boosted by the strong theme of the album, the segues, the consistency of tone, lyrical content and core sound/genre, and the strength of the songs. I actually prefer it to Origin in flow terms. I can imagine Absolution being an incredible journey live.

    News, nEWS, NEWSS (and I know it isn’t strictly about the album but fuck it) 1 - no outright solo record or plans for Matt, but may do more stripped back, ethereal/dreamy stuff (doesn’t like ‘inflicting’ that on Dom/Chris which I kinda suspected tbf). Yes purlease 1.5 - talks about wanting to go back to their roots (again) for LP9, ‘totally resetting’ and ‘going back to square one’, even suggests moving back to Teignmouth. Potentially very exciting if he means something closer to Showbiz and pre-Showbiz rather than Drones 2 - unsure about live shows in 2021 but, if things seem back to normal, they’d be open to doing a show celebrating either OOM or just Origin (just Origin would be weird when they’ve already done that imo, but FUCK for the former) 3 - the Global Citizen gig was supposed to be in Berlin BUT....BUTBUTBUT 4 - this FUCKER has once again hinted at that secret ‘something at the Albert Hall’ by saying it’s something he’s not supposed to talk about. WHAT IS ITTTTTTT. Worth pointing out that he says both shows will still happen if they’re reorganised for next year, but that would seem to suggest that this Albert Hall show isn’t entirely in their hands?

    woah I was not expecting that! Yes, please let Matt score a film, that would be epic! And not some stereotypical romance, only the grandest and most outrageous with moments of sincerely touching heartache could be worth Matt's time. lol Love any time Matt does symphonic work, it always sounds great!

    I'm optimistic that this whole pandemic is going to at least give Matt a new angle for his next song about the end of the world. He's done nukes, climate change, war, aliens, revelations, virtual reality, and of course drones. Certainly pandemic was on the to-do list already. Now he has no excuse!
