Ehh, I think some of you guys may have some bias. The majority of people around me at the past few shows I've been to only knew the big hits. I remember people giving me weird looks in Cincinatti a few years ago because I knew the words to New Born. From the show on Wednesday, the biggest receptions were:
Supermassive Black Hole (Twilight)
Madness (probably the biggest of the night)
Knights of Cydonia
pretty much all of the songs that achieved any type of exposure in the U.S. Pretty tame crowd for all the other songs...even stockholm syndrome which pissed me off
It is what it is. Yes, there are hardcore fans at the events but in such big arenas it doesn't amount to much. I would love to see some smaller venues as the hardcore fans would be the majority of the crowd and the place would be CRAZY like the first show I ever attended. I understand they're about making money now though and arenas are the best way to do that. The best Muse show I've been to the venue had 3k capacity. Truly wild Good memories.
