  1. I think it'll be interesting to see what Resistance tracks get played this tour. TR was their biggest album (on the world stage, at least), but it didn't produce any hit singles other than Uprising, and none of the songs were (in my opinion) great enough to remain live staples. I imagine that Uprising will be a staple, with USoE, US, and Resistance getting rotated around in one of two other slots (someone mentioned Exo remaining, which could also be a possibility, especially if they get a backing band this time around. And they have absolutely no excuse NOT to have a backing band this time around).
  2. The "pop opera" thing doesn't worry me at all. Personally, I think Muse do a great job at pop when they actually try: Starlight, SMBH, TIRO, and others are pretty brilliant pop songs. The trouble is stuff like Survival, where they have no idea what direction to go in so they throw in 10,000 choirs and hope that they cover up the fact that the song isn't great.
  3. The Reading / Leeds show will, I think, have one of two outcomes: 1) The band actually considers it to have provided a conclusion to that era of their career and doesn't play anything except PIB on the next tour. 2) The band realizes that the songs work live and the people enjoy them, and we get more Origin tracks next tour than we have in a while. I'm worried that'll it'll be the first one, though. Y'know, i'm pretty sure that all of the setlist issues that people have had could be easily fixed if Muse just extended their shows. At the Vancouver show on the TR tour, the setlist was kind of pitiful; 18 songs, a number that includes the Helsinki Jam. Next tour, they'll have 6 albums under their belt. They could easily do 23 or so songs and have time to spare for whatever jams and extended solos they want, and they'd be able to get in all the staples and a good handful of fan favourites.
  4. If you listen to the lyrics of Neutron Star Collision, there actually does seem to be something a bit creepy going on underneath it. Whether or not that was intentional, though, I have no idea. Personally i'll go with Hyper Chondriac Music
  5. The bands opinion on a song doesn't really factor into whether or not it should've been a single, though.
  6. It shocks me that FAWY wasn't a single, but that's the only major oversight that I can think of.
