Since you're fairly new you clearly don't know how this place works. Positivity is not very well received, and obviously saying a Muse show was brilliant is a no-no.

 

Positivity is well received when it's justified. It was justified here in Cologne, and it was justified in Bercy and a small handful of Canadian/US gigs.

 

The only negativity on the board talking about live shows right now is from people who got fucked over at their shows with 16 songs or extremely generic sets.

 

Yesterday there was the 4th major show they played in Germany in the past 9 months. And (except for TaB and MotP (and The Globalist of course)) they played nearly exactly the same setlist…

That's what I'm complaining about…

 

Of course, this is a good setlist and for all the people, who haven't seen them before, it was a great experience… but having at least one rarity would, i.e. B&H or the soundchecked Sing for Absolution, and the setlist wouldn't be 'average'

 

It's the same album cycle and it's the first time they've played the arena there, the set structure is in place. I really don't understand what's to be expected here. It sounds like you got "screwed" on the piano rotation (AP instead of USoE since you just got AP I'm assuming), Map instead of PiB/Bliss and got Reapers instead of Revolt.

 

SfA instead of AP would've been nice but remember, a large portion of the audience didn't go to those festival gigs so they'd be disappointed in the lack of a piano slot.

edit:

and the fact, that they play just one song from Showbiz and OoS is something, that I could complain about on a daily basis ;)

TaB doesn't stop being a rarity just because it has been played at like 4 gigs in the last 5 years.

B&H has been played more times than TaB over The 2nd Law/TR tours.

oh… wait… I never said that I got screwed!

I just said, that in my opinion, the set was average. An average set isn't a bad set (Guiding Light instead of AP… ;) )…

 

@Regilistic:

But it hasn't been played in Germany for years… (yeah, I know, the band doesn't know how often they played a song in a country

 

@Tjet:

TaB (and MotP) are rarities… never said anything else

 

 

 

But okay, maybe I'm just exaggerating

so by your logic the set wasn't average.

omg it was my first Muse gig and I'm still so so overwhelmed! I think that the setlist was really good regarding some of the shitty setlists that appeared over the last few months! The only song that was missing imo was probably Stockholm Syndrome but I don't want to complain because I got Take a Bow and Apocalypse Please :)

The only funny thing was that Matt completely fucked up The Handler's solo :D:D

As we all know there's no point to continue complaining about American setlists at this point, but protip: it's rude to invalidate an American's complaints about them. It's appropriate to ask them to stop complaining though this late in the game, but don't be surprised if sets get better that the complaints will come back.

 

Also, all Americans can hope for at this point is that Muse won't dodge the inevitable setlist questions we submitted to them but that's a pipe dream at this point. Here's hoping they answer those questions before the end of April... :rolleyes:

I don't think be fucked it up, he changed it! Maybe it didn't come out exactly how he wanted it to but normally he plays it way more down on the neck of the guitar (sorry I don't play guitar, someone can explain this please) he played the second part of the solo up higher on the neck! Imo...:D

It's obviously intentional indeed. But his falsetto sounds like he's dying. :(

The sets are certianly more interesting now.

 

Now if they could just fill the time on stage with their own music instead of faff and playbacks....

Sadly that doesn't seem likely given Matt's current condition.

It's high time that Morgan reveals himself to be Matt's permanent replacement in the band, with Matt relegated to synth duties.

The support bands were actually just auditions for a new singer.

 

Little did they know, the singer they were looking for was in the band the whole time. It's time for a new era. The era of Morgan.

As I've said before, all the set needs is another piano song that isn't FG and I'm fine with it.

They could bring Minimum back.

Keep the USOE / AP rotation and add another slot for Sunburn / Space Dementia rotation.

 

Makes sense. Maybe even Hoodoo to continue the BHaR 10-year love going.

 

:yesey:

 

Yeah I'd rather Minimum than Prelude/JFK/Drones twice/endless gaps. Monty Jam was nice aswell for a bit of a chilled out piano vibe

From my point of view in the audience it looked like he made a mistake and then tried to make the best out of it by changing the remaining part of the solo...but I don't think that he intended to play it like that right from the beginning ^^ You can't see it in that video but he stopped playing the solo a bit earlier than usual

You can hear the backing track on The Handler solo so clearly :facepalm:.

 

Matt - no-one cares if you fuck it up a bit, that's why it's LIVE music.

If they're doing this BH&R thing and they play little more tracks now and then,imo exo politics would fit perfectly the arena shows.
