What a fantastic gig. Being 17, my previous two Muse gigs were seated and, whilst I’d still rank the Drones gig’s setlist as being superior, being in standing put a whole new perspective on some songs I wouldn’t have particularly cared to see again. All the new songs translated really well, loved hearing them live (although the bass during Propaganda was probably heard from a remote island).
Queued from around 3pm and managed to land one of the golden circle wristbands — though our given turnstile (Y) was certainly a stroke of luck, being right next to the stage (and on Matt’s side :awesome:).
Pale Waves were alright, but Tom Morello was brilliant imo, that rendition of The Ghost Of Tom Joad has gotta be one of the best songs I’ve seen at a gig. And obviously Killing In the Name was always gonna be amazing.
Was on (roughly) the 3rd row from the barrier and around 3 people away from the B stage, so ended up having a great view, and to not be any worse off than those who’d paid for VIP hahahahaha. Until Knights comes on and you inevitably say fuck it and dive into the mosh pit a few rows behind you. On that topic, I’d have liked to have seen a few more typical ‘pits’, but the crowd was still pretty decent, lots of bouncing throughout.
Having only really seen clips of the Algorithm dancers and Murph prior to the gig (who was one mighty fella), some of the production I thought was mega, notably the spacemen during Break It To Me, and the STT Interstitial visuals were impressive.
Overall just an amazing gig experience, met some great folk in the queue before the gig and in the crowd, support was great, Muse were excellent. Now just have to see what this announcement is tomorrow...
