Feeling Good

 

Yeah, I'm sure that will go down well at Download.

 

 

I'm not expecting anything grand from the festival shows - a bit heavier than usual, but nothing truly mind-blowing.

 

Dom confirmed that they're likely playing Assassin for the festivals, and who knows what else.

I dunno, Download likes a good cheesy singalong too - they've certainly had enough of them over the years for it to not be a dealbreaker. Eg AC/DC, Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, Metallica - all bands with plenty of cheesy singalong hits (though note that use a piano, I'll grant you that) Feeling Good is the sort of song *everyone* knows (i.e. amazing festival fodder, especially when nobody really goes to Download for a band like Muse - it can draw non-fans in) and while Muse setlists are wildly unpredictable I think they'll swing towards safe at shows like this.

 

As for assassin... I'll believe it when I see it. ;)

I guess they could always play Dead Star 2.0 to make up for Feeling Good.

From what I've heard about Download, I'm genuinely worried they'll play Dead Inside/Madness etc. and get bottled/booed off the stage.

Download isn't a hardcore tr00 metul festival, it's frequented by plenty of normal fans who just like music too. There's Marilyn Manson is playing on another stage for all the bored teenagers to go off to and watch instead of spitefully standing through something they don't like, and I'm pretty sure there'll be enough Muse fans who bought day tickets to balance out any dissenters who remain in the crowd after Faith No More. Muse are one of the biggest and most successful modern rock bands in the UK and the idea of them being bottled off the stage is utterly laughable.

They've had Chase & Status sub-headline there in a recent year, and Muse are semi-regulars in Kerrang (TV and mag). So I'm guessing they're not the fish out of water booking most assumed when it was announced.

Well exactly. I was there when Chase and Status started, watched the first song, decided they weren't for me, and walked up the hill to go and see Nightwish. Like, you know, an adult. Other people went back to their tents to drink or whatever else. Standing and bottling an act performing at a festival just because you don't like them is just not something which really happens anymore.

Mr Manson finishes 30 minutes or so before Muse start. Just to increase to the minuscule probability that the crowd will throw crap a The Muse.

No way they're going to do a ten minute song at a festival unless they're scheduled for at least two hours without riffing/minimal interruptions (2 hour festivals, 2hr30 arenas and 3 hour stadiums would be nice).

They did eight minutes songs before and nine minutes songs before, is one minute more that important?

I think 10 minutes is an exaggeration anyway, its probably more like 6-8.
