Anyone done a comparison of New Born BPM from the other night with performances from TR / T2L / Drones?
I think both Mayan 2015 and SBE 2017 are around the studio version 151, while for example T2L was around 145 or slightly lower.

Something interesting I don't think has been mentioned before, but Matt said 47.1% of voters voted for Showbiz, which got 683 votes, which would imply 1450 voted. SBE has a capacity of 2000. So 500+ people didn't vote?

Makes sense tbh. Way too many of those votes seemed to have gone to people who had no interest in seeing Muse, or simply because who came there to see what the fuss was about.

 

And then a bunch of casuals seemed to slip in as well. Oh and some tickets were sold too close to the gig to give the people a chance to vote I think.

The dudes I was talking to in the queue said they didn't vote because they didn't know all of the songs that were listed, and they were aware that it was going to be a very "Muse version of marvel fanboys" gig, and they didn't feel that they should take away from it because they got their tickets from someone who works at the venue (apparently)

Ha, on the Absolution IEM Matt says "Oh sorry it's 'nowhere left to hide'" super fast before seamlessly going into the next line. I missed that on the night and in subsequent watchings of the recordings.

 

I hope the guy uploads the rest of the show in IEM. Lots of fascinating tidbits.

Was it a metal silver watch with a black face? I found one at the back and handed it to one of the security guys. The strap was broken though...

Here are my videos of the gig (missing only Plug In Baby). I was going to record rare songs, and well we got many of them, and decided to tape some "not so rare" ones when I had to give up my spot at the front. Pretty good audio imo, but some are very shaky due to my jumping, insane crowd and such :D

Great show. Fury, Easily, Futurism and Glorious all played so 4 of my 10 chosen, not bad at all. Easily literally my favourite song of all time so was a pleasure to gets it debut.

 

So far of my 9 Muse gigs, I've had the honour of seeing the debuts of MK Ultra, The Handler and now Easily. Lovely stuff.

 

As for "non-fans" in attendance... I was stood to the left about central, and this couple near me had the chap explain to his girlfriend how this was a big deal as it's a big band playing a small venue, and she was just nodding. From the sound of it she didn't even really know any of their songs. What a waste of a ticket.

More likely to have been a judgment call based on the rest of the setlist. Eternally missed would have brought the flow to a crashing halt. It's good, but it doesn't quite have enough going on

 

Wha?

Chris's harmonic singing is spot on.

 

It's perfectly appropriate and enjoyable, not sure if I'd call it spot on.

 

I want to hear Dead Star like this. Chris really went for it there.

Okay, now that I'm finally home from Italy and can post without worrying about battery or data, here's some proper thoughts:

 

+ Crowd was just incredible, applause all round. My shirt's never been plastered to my body quite like that before and it's even come away with a few rips :chuckle:

 

+ The amount of fun the band had can't be overstated. Matt going mad during the post-New Born/Yes Please riffage and seemed so hyper/confident while bantering with the crowd, loved him letting the crowd sing that MM verse as well. Dom practically skipping back on-stage for Futurism, constantly beaming and looking on the verge of orgasm for Glorious.

 

+ Mad props to Matt's stamina throughout the night. Constantly rocking out and still pulling off some impressive and demanding vocals for Showbiz, S4A (was massively surprised by that mostly chest outro!) and Futurism despite them being later in the set.

 

+ Assassin through Fury was frankly god-like flow, particularly Glorious > Glasto Jam + Butterflies > CE > Showbiz - I mean wtf even is that

 

+ Matt's playing for Glorious was majestic to watch up close, 'specially the outro. Oh, and Chris' takeover of the main riff after the first chorus - always loved it and was just as great live.

 

- Had some problems with security personally. Water down the front was really scarce, we had to scream for some for ages before they brought out a couple of cups and when I stayed behind to ask for one more at the end 'cos I felt faint I was told to 'stop being cheap and go to the bar'. Also, scanner organisation wasn't great at first in priority queue, ended up causing panicked rushing and lost me my barrier spot (still got to the front though thankfully).

 

- Matt's vocals could've been higher in the mix but it wasn't a big problem, crowd was drowning him out half the time anyway.

 

- Set slightly missed Bliss imo. Didn't mind hits like PIB and Hysteria at all but it should've closed over Knights, just to change that up for once. Almost glad it didn't though 'cos I was so close to passing out by the end that I wouldn't have been able to enjoy it properly.

 

If I could have the time back, would've loved to have met some boardies and stayed behind for the band afterwards but I was honestly sooo fucked after the gig. As in - I couldn't really move and when I did I wretched :LOL: maybe another time, you lovelies <3

 

Eternally missed would have brought the flow to a crashing halt. It's good, but it doesn't quite have enough going on

the way they (matt) wrote the setlist, i think it could have snuck in right behind glorious and done just fine.

bliss would have been a nice alternate closer, and so would take a bow. i bet the former got more votes than the latter, though, and, upon considering the setlist again as it played out, maybe TaB would have felt slightly out of place.

 

What a show, one of the best i have attended (and i i have attended so many).

It was like a Time Machine, feeling myself 15 years younger.

 

Hope you enjoy the tracks :D

 

i will for some time. thanks-a-mucho!

I remember this - you timed your landing over the barrier, after your crowd surf, to coincide exactly with the end of Knights - made me laugh bec you looked back at us triumphantly as if you had orchestrated the whole gig! :LOL:
