i've already checked both links but nothing... no video player.

 

The game is on now. Muse are supposed to go on in a little over an hour. Let me see if there are other links out there...

 

Haven't seen anything else. :( I'm going to try the links provided when they are supposed to go on. Hopefully, they'll work. Good luck!

The TeamCoco one didn't have anything for me either. I was assuming it would start when Muse perform. I haven't tried the other. Gah! I hope they work!

Looks like Muse blew a fuse again! Deja vu from the Nassau Coliseum concert a few years ago :) Venues just can't seem to handle the epicness that is Muse

That was beautiful. The boys really gave it their all tonight, I mean they blew out a fuse! For a first Muse gig, that was pretty mind blowing. I was screaming the lyrics and dancing. Now I can see why going to a Muse gig means so much to a lot of fans. They put in a lot of effort to please the crowd and make us go crazy! And they're coming back in September. PART 2 !! :) :)

Another great show!!!!! The best part was when Matt said "Thank you Atlanta, see you in September!!!!!". I guess we can finally confirm there will be more US dates!!! I'm guessing after the Rock N Rio show.

Thought it was awful. Crowd was dead. Poor set list, but that was expected.

 

Looks like they were having fun though.

The show was great! The setlist was expected because they were streaming and it was a free event, plus shorter than the arena shows. Regardless, I enjoy the hits and singles! Just because they're not b-sides doesn't mean they aren't Muse!

 

After Flo Rida, I was walking around near the Coca-Cola World and happened to see some black SUVs drive by with a police escort. That was intriguing because in Tampa several of us waiting to meet the guys after the show were told they left in similar vehicles. I waited a few minutes and they pulled around and into the backstage area. I saw Matt get out of one of the cars, so I knew where to go after the show!

 

I shot the band from the photo pit for the first three songs, doing an article for a local newspaper back home. After the set, I went around back and waited for the guys to come back to the cars. It took a bit of waiting, around an hour, but they came back. I shouted at Matt and he waved, but it didn't seem they were going to come to the fence! Then, Chris jumped up onto the fence and chatted with us for a bit. I got a couple of CDs signed, just by Chris but that will do for now! After six shows, this was a treat! He was quite nice and it was really unexpected. :D

I thought it was a great show. I keep seeing online people saying the crowd was dead. Wonder if that's from people who were there or from people watching the video.

 

You have to remember that this was a free show for sports fans. Two times I've seen Muse in the US, there were maybe 10,000 at each show. There were 100,000 at this thing last night. I'd guess 9 out of ten wandered in for a free concert and party, and were not gonna know the Starlight clap, or be screaming for Bliss or Fury.

 

I only wish they'd done Plug In Baby after the mixing desk failed!

 

The bad were ON it. The most energy of the times I've seen them, and Chris looked so healthy: guessing he's really on track after a few years off drink and into more football. Matt and Dom were really tight and full of life, and I talked with several Musers who were completely into it.

 

So what if most of the crowd wouldn't have known Muse from The Beach Boys? Touring is about pleasing the old fans and converting new ones. I'll be there in September.

I thought the same way too. I really liked the performance, but I felt like I was the only person that knew the lyrics to every song (at least in my section), aside from Madness, Supermassive Black Hole, and Uprising. which I found were the only songs everyone knew. Then I read your comment and I totally agree with you. I'm pretty sure when they come back to Atlanta in September, there will be more hardcore fans there that know the songs because they bought a paying ticket to see them. I'll be at that concert as well.

This was my first live Muse show. I was not there for the basketball. I was about 15 ft in front of the sound position. I am reading people saying that it was a dead crowd and am a little puzzled. I watched thousands of people rocking their butts off. There were a lot of idiots in the crowd too, but that is expected for any sort of free show. I loved being nearly deatomized during Follow Me when the dub bass bit kicked in. It is no wonder that that was the moment that the system decided to melt down. As a sound guy I would love to find out what the real story on that was. But they got the system up and running quickly. I noticed that they brought the system up the original levels slowly afterwards, but they were back up to blowing our clothes off in no time.

But for seeing them live for the first time, it was a wonderful show. I do hope they were serious about coming back in Sept. I want to hear some of the deeper tracks in the full rage that they present.

Crowd definitely was NOT dead. You can't judge a crowd based on a live stream. Most streams like that don't have the audience very loud or the mix or just not at all. Place was exploding though, lots of hands up and people jumping everywhere.

Well, I had a great time at this gig because hey, free Muse gig and it was a really fun meetup. :D The crowd was indeed lame, but that's about what I would expect for a show like this. I got into it as much as I could, and I was surrounded by fans, but when you consider the enormity of the crowd (100,000 or whatever), the real fans are a drop in the bucket. I def. would have gone more mental if the crowd was more into it. I did see a lot of Muse shirts throughout the day, though.

 

I was on the barrier on Matt's side behind the big VIP section which was full of ingrates. So that was annoying, seeing how bored most of them were. But at least I had an unobstructed view. That section was practically empty.

 

When they played Survival with the smoke and everything, I was like "what, is that it?" That would've sucked. It was hilarious when the power went out during FM. OMG. I'm just so glad they didn't bail and were able to fix the problem. I was nervous they might just say fuck it. I was a bit disappointed that the crowd didn't do the KoC "ohhhh ohhhhoh ohhhh ohhhh" singalong, but it's not surprising, I guss. Anyway, 13 songs was actually more than I was expecting. I was holding out hope they might play Bliss, but alas. It was cool seeing a festival setup w/ the visuals, though.

 

So glad they are coming back in September! :D
