LaWeekly blog - LA Rising recap


Recommended Posts



The other main act, Muse, delivered a stirring 90-minute set. Featuring the band's mesmerizing lighting -- which looked very much out of the Pink Floyd guide to how to put on a great rock show -- the Brits managed not only keep the crowd's focus, but likely won many new admirers.


​Singer Matthew Bellamy, clad in a Captain America t-shirt, proved why he is ascending to the top of the list of modern rock front men. The band played some of their most popular songs at the top of the set, including "Uprising" and "Map of the Problematique."


Bellamy had a self-assured stage presence, and the band had a terrific stage setup. Whether it was snippets of covers (Led Zeppelin's "Heartbreaker," "House of the Rising Sun") or the unleashing of large eyeball balloons into the crowd during "Plug In Baby," there was nary a dull moment.


Unfortunately, the same could not be said of Lauryn Hill's lackluster set.
