Yeah that was what I expected...incredible. when the opening to micro cuts started...my jaw dropped. That and agitated. It's like they went with a goal; start as heavy as possible.

 

I've heard a lot of; "but it went lighter and shit in the end," to which I say, this was still technically a tour gig, so they had to play 'the hits'. Not everyone at download wanted muse there or would go see them for any reason bit what they already know.

 

The riff on newborn was incredible. It had everyone jumping as far as I could see. I ended up about 7-8 rows back and far to the left after the pits dispersed. Could still see perfectly though.

 

PiB went down brilliantly. Honestly feel like that song is as immortal as Morgan Freeman. It never ages.

 

Handler was massive. Great debut. It'll be amazing at future gigs too. And then there's CE...

 

I've been 4 times. Got a rarity every time. Fury at RAH, sunburn at LG arena, Map at Emirates and I was expecting one here. Got a few. I'm a happy muser today. That should satisfy the itch until their next UK tour...

I wouldn't say Map is a rarity

 

In relation to what they've played in other locations and how a lot of people clamour for map and then it doesn't get played..it seems to be going down that path, though I get what you're saying in all truth. Could of gone with sunburn. Or half of host. Or blackout. I was looking for something specific to that gig in that tour.

The Handler was huge, but Matt's mic either cut-out or he didn't bother with the aiaiaiaiaiaiaaaaaahhhh (seemed a bit of both from what I saw?), best performance of Micro Cuts ever

 

IIRC, he did the first one but not the one at the end. Could be wrong though, haven't watched videos of it yet.

 

As for Micro Cuts, nah. One of the best, probably, but not the best.

Obviously they have to play a few hits, it just gets a bit tedious when it's always the same ones (Hysteria, Knights, Supermassive, PIB, Uprising, TIRO...). Songs like Uprising and TIRO are boring live nowadays so, hits or not, they're pretty shit. Plus, so many in a row, bar Reapers and Stockholm, took it's toll.

 

As for PIB, I guess it gets the crowd going but it really doesn't sound the great anymore imo. Needs to be rotated/dropped for a bit to keep it from sounding tired.

 

I wouldn't say Map is a rarity

 

It sort of is nowadays. It's in a bit of a grey area. Shame because it should be a staple.

 

 

Loved this crowd interaction :LOL::D never seen him do that before

 

He's done it a few times over the last few years, iirc. Sometimes he tries it and it fails, so it's less noticeable.

'Dat rockt :awesome:.

 

Reapers keeps getting bigger and bigger live.

 

Best Micro Cuts I've ever seen too, maybe best Citizen as well. First time I've seen Agitated and first Dead Star since Earls Court.

 

Set was pretty well paced, and Mercy was actually a real highlight. I was dreading the Uprising > Starlight > Knights encore, but Plug In Baby saved it.

 

I think Time Is Running Out was actually the weakest song all night, it's just a bit tired. Went down well though.

 

Tbh, they just about nailed it tonight.

 

Really? Christ.

Did it justify the £80 ticket, £20 parking, £30 petrol? Probably not.

 

Was it better than most Muse shows I've seen? Yes, yes, yes. Setlist isn't everything. Location, occasion and performance are king. Yesterday was absolutely amazing. It all came together beautifully.

 

It does look fantastic but the rain as well put me off majorly, I can't deal with mud anymore after Leeds 2013. If I had the money I probably would of went just a bit tight right now after just finishing uni last week so have no income whatsoever :(

 

The sound looks incredible going by some of the youtube videos

Was definitely worth the money for me. Was a great first festival experience!

Exactly that! Too tired to be furious! I'm used to lack of sleep but my friend, Sarah was really struggling...the ultimate comedown after the high!!

 

Citizen and Micro were highlights but thought everything was turned up a notch to 11! Matt's voice sounded powerful from where we were!

People who are Download 'veterans', who are 'metal as fook' and listen almost exclusively to that kind of music are saying that Muse outperformed Slipknot. That doesn't get said lightly. Seriously.

 

Far from a Download veteran myself but have been before, and a few people have said they outperformed Rammstein too.

That, also, does not get said lightly.

Just finished using the pressure washer on my boots, that was the most mud EVER!!:D

Yesterday in one word. Incredible!!! Loved it, worth every single penny imo!

We were about 5 rows back on Matt's side and had a blast!! Brilliant setlist, first half took my breath away....just got better and better! Tbh I'm glad it "slowed down" a bit after that.... This 42 year old body couldn't take much more jumping up and down!! Chuffed we got "The Handler" debut, brilliant song!

I think the 3 of them were on top form last night and all I can say is BRING ON THE TOUR!!!!

 

Footnote: favourite "other" bit of the day..... Mike Patton grabbing the headphones from the security guy and shouting "terrorist alert, everybody vacate"!! Brave, but what a knob!!:LOL:

I enjoyed that too, that security guard got quite a bit of love in general that day :chuckle:

 

Seen a fair few people saying they were in around the same area I was, I'm paranoid that I'll pop up in a video or that I've met people and not realised :shifty:

That mud was 2/10 compared with two of the three Glastonburys I've been to!

Just got back, wow what a performance. And Citizen returned after four years. I am surprised I didn't disrupt the performance the way I was squealing :LOL:

Looks like it was a fantastic performance! Jealous you guys got the Handler :) what happened during the bridge, though? Matt seemed to fuck up the guitar a bit. His vocals on the other hand were fucking impressive. Jealous of MC as well, still haven't seen that one live

Really? That's strange a lot of people there were saying they couldn't believe it was back after four years, since Reading. Where did they play it in 2013?

Did it show up in America, or maybe Australia?
