I was hoping for Werchter but I think The Killers are outright headliners for Friday, which was the last slot to fill.

 

If a Muse/Killers co-headline was on offer I'd be very much in favour of heading across the Channel for that. Especially at a festival with Gorillaz, QOTSA and Arctic Monkeys as other headliners.

 

I'm probably just hoping way too much, but I think there's still a possibility they'll come on saturday... Although, with Pearl Jam as a headliner, chances are pretty much non-existent.

 

But I don't get it, last year Matt promised they'd be playing in Belgium 'very soon'. I don't know how his mind works (I wish I did!), but to me 9 months is not very soon... Especially when it's 9 months without Muse. And can't go to Germany or Lisbon because of my job, so hopefully they'll be announcing something soon...

Don't trust Matt regarding gig promises. They usually mean "next album tour" when they say that.

Apparently Matt's said in a French interview that they're intending to do stadiums on the next tour.

 

Will have been a while since the last stadium dates by then tbf. Wonder if one date would be London Olympic Stadium given I seem to recall a previous comment about wanting to play there.

yeah london olympic stadium is a possibility but i would prefer a come back at wembley, 9 years after their last gig :)

Well this year, Rolling Stones, Jay-Z/Beyonce and Foo Fighters are doing it, plus I've heard some say Arctic Monkeys are playing there (although maybe not - hard to know what they're doing until they announce something). Its nice to see it get the use for something though, and given recent events, it looks a better use for concerts than as a home for West Ham.

 

I saw Depeche Mode at the Olympic Stadium last year. The sound wasn't great for The Horrors, but when DM came on, it sounded very good. The seats are a mile from the stage though.

 

A return to Wembley would be good too though for shows that big. But tbf having missed out on SBE and La Cigale, I'm more tempted to wait around in the hope of another request gig. Especially if they begin to do more of them.

Yeah and also you’ll be near Nuremberg which is a great city and not so far from Munich to go exploring

By the look of the map, the venue seems to be in Nuremberg itself, and relatively close to the main train station. Certainly, it looks a lot less of a pain in the arse to get to that the Nurburgring.

 

Speaking of RaR/RiP, when they announced the bill I thought 30 Seconds To Mars would be a co-headliner, rather than the actual arrangement of them outright and a Foo Fighters/Gorillaz co-headline. Didn't realise they were that big.

30STM are as big as Muse in Germany.

 

Yeah, I know, our taste in music sucks.

Volbeat can headline Rock am Ring as well... I don't know why.

Random. But then that can happen. I know Editors are huge in Belgium and Holland, but in the UK, I can still get tickets to all of their shows for their October tour, which is all in academy/theatre rooms.

 

Also, I'm not entirely sure who Volbeat are. Which might be further proof I live in my own little bubble musically.

Volbeat are Elvis and Metallica crossover band from Denmark, they're big in Scandinavia, Benelux countries, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. People hardly know them outside of that part :LOL:

That's different. :chuckle:

 

Maybe there's a profile to them here I wasn't aware of - they're 3rd on the main stage at Download UK, below Bullet for my Valentine and headliners Avenged Sevenfold.

Volbeat? They're all over rock radio over here in the states (the ones where rock radio still exists anyways.)

Been impossible to escape for most of last year and this one.

Also in Germany Billy Talent and Rise Against are for some reason really really big. I swear Billy Talent had a bigger crowd than RHCP and Black Sabbath at Rock im Park in 2016

Guessing it’ll almost certainly end up being LA. Did he imply any kinda timeframe? Wonder if it could coincide w/ BottleRock.

It sounds like he more implied Chicago, which would make sense being in the middle of the country, with the last two small gigs being on the east and west coasts. As for timeframe, "summer." Maybe.

Huh, figured he’d just go for what was closest to home as opposed to thinking back and taking those last 2 shows into account tbh :chuckle: Interesting though, maybe closer to July/August instead then, and somewhere like Metro or the Riviera Theatre. Wonder if they’d time it to go with another single.

Tbf I don't think any of the festivals Muse are booked for this summer are that close to Chicago. Although I assumed Austin given I saw a fan asked Matt & Dom when they were there for Matt's Beatles band if they'd do one there and they seemed receptive to the concept.

 

Either that or maybe it'd be a make up for Lollapalooza getting washed out last year.

I think the Austin comment was in response to a fan asking them to do a gig there, and them just saying "we'd love to!" because it's nicer than "no."

 

The Chicago comment was to a fan in London.

Chicago makes sense being they've promised a make up gig for their Lollapalooza set being cancelled last year.

 

I bet they do both that and LA.
