Rock in Rio again next year? That would be interesting to see. I always thought they put around 3 -6 years in between attending festivals or for some even longer.

 

The way it's looking for the rest of this year is "Something Human" coming out this month, another single (guessing it's either "Algorithm" or "Dark Side") coming out in the Autumn, before the full album finally drops in November.

 

if i remember well he was answering a brazilian fan about coming to "rock in rio in actual rio" so in Brazil. And he said at the end of the gig see you next year portugal refering to their next tour with the new album

Yeah, RiR as in the one in Rio de Janeiro. Don't think Rock in Rio Lisbon is held in odd numbered years anyway.

 

Maybe they'll do some smaller shows in November/December to coincide with the new album, assuming Chris is ready to return to touring duties, and full stuff in 2019. Which does sound like it'll be the focus for Europe, judging by the Instagram posts after RaR and Lisbon.

Makes sense to me. They’ve pretty consistently said the big tour won’t start ‘til 2019 and they’ve always done at least one small gig, if not a few, while kicking off an album cycle*. Maybe another Psycho Tour situation but with a smaller by request element thrown in (e.g. 5 votes instead of 10).

 

*

OOS (if this even counts): PIB Tour

Abso: Melkweg, Gloria Theatre, Ancienne Belgique, La Tranendo, Carling Academy

Black Holes: SBE

Resistance: Admiralspalast, Theatre Du Chatelet

T2L: E-Werk, L’Olympia

Drones: Psycho Tour + Webster Hall, iHeart Theatre, Mayan Theatre

Teignmouth also for The Resistance. Not a small show but it was a special one. I wouldn't count Origin much, they never really stopped touring around that time.

Towards the end of last year they did a small show for the Almost Acoustic Christmas festival. Perhaps maybe we'll get a similar scenario at the end of this year where they attend another Christmas-related festival?

Courtesy of the KROQ interview, Matt has declared they're planning to do some shows around the album release in November, and then starting the full tour in America in spring next year.

 

When it rolls round to Europe, we expecting full shows or more festivals? Much as people were critical of Mad Cool and the location in the edge of the city was a pain, I enjoyed myself enough that Muse with a solid undercard could be worth a return.

Massive missed opportunity if they don’t use these small gigs around release to play the alternate versions of the album songs (alongside rarities of course ffs).

So with This whole thing Glenn is setting up I would be VERY VERY surprised if they don't get involved and do some small gigs there (hurrah to pit sales for that).

Hope we get some gigs in the lead up to this though, maybe a bit like the physco tour (which was the best night of my life EXETER FTW). Heres hoping.

Whats the next UK Festival we think...tends to be a roll around the same ones ish in a cycle so Glasto...... :s

I think that’s the natural Muse fan’s response to Glen’s new project but I wouldn’t pin too many hopes on it tbh. He was liking tweets suggesting some small Muse gigs associated with it just before he announced he was off but that could easily have just been jovial. It’s more than possible he wants to build it up without relying on connections to his past job. That said, if Muse are planning some small shows anyway then maybe there’s no reason why not, he was asking fans to help boost awareness of it the other day. The type of venues Glen’s working with are a lot smaller than SBE though so, yeah, tickets would be beyond a nightmare :chuckle: I wouldn’t even like to imagine...

 

Glasto’s a big no though, way too soon. They had 6 years between each of the last performances.

Yeah, we can only hope. I hate the pit of sales where I just sit for 3 hours getting the no no no whilst everyone on twitters screaming they got em (so many years, so much nope).

 

Meh fair enough ref Glasto, Just trying to work out the rotation and it seemed next on the list, what do you think then?

UK specifically?

 

TRNSMT, Big Weekend, Isle Of Wight, Eden Sessions and V Festival are all some they’ve not done in a while (at all in TRNSMT’s case). Would only expect 1 or 2 of those though, maybe TRNSMT being the most likely. Download v doubtful w/ this shaping up to be a pop album.

V not existing anymore rules that one out. Not that I'm sure they'd fit in with the line-up that its replacement (RiZE Festival) spat out for its initial year, mind.

 

I suggested BST Hyde Park for this year, so maybe there would work. Isle of Wight's also one that could work - last one was the warm-up for Wembley in '07, right?

I think they will do stadium in’europe at summer 2019 as matt talked about the possibility for them to go back to stadiums in an Itw in February. Matt said recently it was very exhausting and difficult for family time to do arenas tour because of the number of gigs you had to make (6 Bercy = 1.5 stade de France)

 

As they begin in North America maybe they Will try to start to do stadiums gigs in USA in very big cities like NY, LA, Chicago, Houston/Dallas, Toronto for Canada ; but don’t know if they are big enough yet.

I think it’ll look something like this;

 

November / December: Small European and American gigs

 

Spring: American shows

 

Summer: Stadiums in England & Europe + festivals (Hopefully TRNSMT)

 

Autumn - Winter: Asia + the rest of the world

I shall probs give all giggage a miss unless I can get tickets for one of the smaller gigs. Muse’s bigger gigs (arenas/stadiums) haven’t delivered for a while, imo. And have become ludicrously expensive.

 

If they do a more trad, paired back arena tour (no in the round, pliz), I might be tempted but again, I think it’ll be a last-min Twickets job based on how the sets are shaping up.

The last stadium tour was pretty fucking rad tbf, even if it was 5 (6 next year) years ago. Performance, stage, set length all totally on point. Just needed slightly better song choice and no actors to be pretty perfect tbh. Not that I think they’ll reach that level again but, ya never know, with a lighter schedule maybe they’ll be more willing to push it a bit. It’s enough past merit to be willing to give it a go for me, especially if Wembley comes round.

There's no way I'd pay to travel to see them for a normal gig anymore, even if the album was my favorite ever. (Which, with what we've heard, is already statistically impossible.)

 

I know they're going to announce that small gig in the US at some point, terribly last minute, and I'm going to get bent out of shape about it again, despite knowing that the setlist will only be a massive let down compared to the overseas one.

I find myself thinking way too much on Matt's "2 o'clock" Tweet.

Tbf, it was just about guaranteed a small/request gig in the US would be in either NYC or LA.

Remember y'all, there's a human aspect to all this: Chris is still in recovery. So do also keep the possibility open to no gigs at all at the end of this year.

Except it was thought Matt all but confirmed it to be in Chicago to a fan, and that could fit if he was talking time zones.

A small venue show would hit the spot a lot more than a stadium or park, although one can imagine getting a ticket to be a manic squabble.

 

Tempted to head out to Europe for a date or two on the full tour if only because its an excuse to see more exciting places that I'm so far yet to, whereas I think I've kinda done all the London stadiums multiple times over. Essentially, what I wanted to do on the Drones Tour before chickening out and sticking to the O2.

I just got wind of this US by Request possibility...if this gets announced can we please get a concerted effort together to spam the fuck out of a #ShrinkingUniverse?

 

I don't want a retread of Glorious, Easily, Futurism, Eternally Missed. If we could get another mega B side pulled out randomly I think Shrinking Universe would be top tier to get a pro shot of.

 

EDIT: I'm not saying I wouldn't be absolutely ecstatic to get any of the rare songs from the first two by request songs, and I hope we get a few of them. But I want to see if we can make a board effort to get another ultra rare unplayed song into this set. Shrinking Universe was the first thing that came to mind for me. Open to other suggestions (Recess?) but I think we should pick one and get behind a hashtag that makes the band and people going to the show aware to vote for it.

I would like to hear Shrinking Universe as well actually, but I wouldn't put it over any of the B-sides you've just mentioned. They're all still rare, If it's really a US gig, it probably won't be that highly voted for anyway.

If those songs get voted in though, that’s the point of these gigs. I could get asking people not to vote for v common songs but, other than that, I think it should be left for people to choose what they want.

 

Also just a bit mad to me to already be against ‘retreads’ of those songs when 3 of them have only been played once (their final versions, that is) :chuckle:
