I don't know anything about performing music but...

 

If Matt is struggling with singing, why don't they write new material that is strong in guitar and less demanding on the vocals?

 

Could they also apply the same sort of angle to adapt their old songs?

 

For me anyway I think favourite to least favourite muse song goes along a gradient of guitar to no guitar.

I saw people writing this during the release of the last album.

i was at West Palm beach and am dismayed by the play back

 

on another question: some people told me Elle Evans was on the stage and used for live visuals from her movements. Is that so? any videos of that?

Because it's easier to make both aspects less demanding.

Muse don't seem to be interested in playing the old songs that are worthy of adapting.

Agreed to some extent although I do like much of Matt's piano work. It's just disappointing live when they're either using playback or letting Morgan handle more of the instrumentation.

Piano Cave was awesome.

 

They just don't try that much anymore. It's so blamd these days. But occasionally something happens (Take a Bow, Assassin, Apocalypse Please). Such a troll band

Always thought piano Cave was pretty guff tbh. The bouncy piano style coupled with Matt's overly-hero vocals just made it sound silly imo. Falling Down's a waaay better example of how something like that can work and feel fresh.

Doublepost but, in case anyone cares, in that same interview where Soldier's Poem gets mentioned, Dom briefly touts the potential of doing a playthrough of TR for the 10th anniversary in 2019. Unclear how serious he is or if he's just throwing it out there but I can see it happening tbh. Massive album for their growth and could be a pretty free year for them, depending on how the LP8 touring schedule goes post-release. Matt's always wanted a 'right occasion' to play Exo in full as well.

 

Hardly my fave album but I'd go, just to check off MKU, IBTY and Exo if anything. Get an orchestra in, could be decent.

Meh. Would've been more interested in an Absolution 10th playthrough in 2013, although I suspect there wasn't really space for it in the tour schedule with all the T2L touring. Plus it would mean seeing Guiding Light live again. :chuckle:

 

Exogenesis in full as a nod to it would be cool though.

They won't tour with an orchestra

 

Oh god no, not for an actual tour. Could see them being up for it at a one-off gig though, 'specially for an album that has a 3-part symphony on it :chuckle:

 

But, yeah, may well not happen at all. Just thought I'd let peeps know that Dom had mentioned it.

Was this the same interview that mentioned the idea behind including NKOK w/ that vocal play was an elaborate in-joke? I swear I saw something along those lines in a thread elsewhere, but I don't really remember. Maybe in my tired heat haze I imagined it. :chuckle:

 

Bit weird. A shame too as the rhythm section part sounds good, if not quite as good as the one for Munich Jam, which sounds oddly better sped up.

 

EDIT: Listening to the interview, I think I've either read the thread or initially heard the interview wrong. Or both. :chuckle:

Same interview, yeah, but that's not exactly what happens. They're just discussing setlist plans (before the tour) and Matt says something like "If we're feeling weird, maybe we'll play some New Kind Of Kick" and laughs.

 

...then again, he does also say "We'll play a bigger range of material from all of our albums, it won't be too heavy on Drones" just before that so :rolleyes: Thankfully, the TR thing came from Dom though.

 

Edit: whoops nvm ya got it

Yeah I think it was just me mis-reading a line in another thread as the actual quote. Oops. :chuckle:

As for the TR orchestra, they've already proved they're not above doing stuff with a backing track or full playback anymore, so it's not completely out.

I saw a spam advert earlier claiming Muse had 2018 UK shows announced.

 

It was a hoax site - not least given the photo had Matt Bellamy flipped so he was playing guitar left-handed - but are we expecting anything in UK/Europe for next year?

Didn't they have a live performance of Supremacy with an orchestra?

Rock Werchter 2018? :awesome:

 

Ugh if it is I'll be a fool and go because of what happened last time and get the worst set ever.
