...I'm hyping so much over the idea of opening with What's He Building then straight into the Futurism cymbals...

And one thing: why is nobody voting for Aftermath? They have never played it live and it is on the list

 

Coz it's shit and I don't want to hear it?

Would be amazing.

 

The dream opening for me is house lights off -> the band walks on with no intro -> Assassin -> Dead Star -> Citizen Erased. Crowd would go insane.

Not as confusing as stuff like Cave and Uno, which were singles and brought back in '09 and '15(!) respectively. Guess you could argue Origin stuff being omitted isn't surprising since they drew a line for some of those songs after R+L.

Yeah Uno is an equally odd exclusion after its 2015 cameos.

 

To be fair you could make the case there's a good dozen exclusions people would've voted for. Space Dementia, Uno, City of Delusion, Shrinking Universe and Glorious were ones I considered. I wasn't as warm on songs from Showbiz, although Spiral Static would've been a consideration too on an "everything's available" poll.

I've suggested it a few times but What's He Building > Citizen would be the perf way to kick things off imo. The dirty drop A riff works perfectly coming out of the Waits creepiness and it'd be the ultimate fan-favourite at the ultimate fan-gig (well, by Muse standards).

 

You could argue that the piano outro makes it a bit long and slow for opener but that'd just help make an end to the grand entrance and set the stage for the rest of the set for me.

 

Edit: More than anything though - Muse. Close with Bliss. Pls.

 

Edit 2: FOR REFERENCE :awesome:

Just as "What's he building" comes to a close, slight pause....

 

"Controlling my feelings for too long..."

 

Well, that's about the point I start screaming anyway. That said, either CE or Futurism would be a smashing entrance.

Gotta say I prefer What's He Building into Dead Star.

That would also be madness. At any point in the set tbf, especially if Matt didn't introduce it or anything - just go straight into that first line. Got a feeling they'll do it with the drum intro from the album version though.

 

ok need dis

 

Edit: What CE performance is that?

 

Lille Zenith 2001 I think? There's only audio of 3 occasions where CE opened iirc - that, Leicester '01 and V Fest '01.

This. What's He Building into a Warchild / Download quality Dead Star would be mega.

Just seen the list,

 

Some good options on there, bit of a shame as 4 of my choices were FAWY, The Small Print, MK Ultra & Hyper Condriac

 

I'll have to have a rethink. Gonna spend ages tweaking my list now, delighted Showbiz, The Groove and Futurism are on there though

Because it's an embarrassment of a song and people would rather forget that Muse ever stooped so low as to put it to record?

I'm quite looking forward to 2000 fans screaming the GOB-version verse when they play the riff after Assassin.

I am so heartened by the amount of votes I'm seeing for Eternally Missed!

 

Can't wait to hear that bass riff, then promptly be floored by it.

Hi all. Long time lurker but first time poster. Bought my first Muse CD in 1999 and yet somehow never managed to get to a gig before this one so really excited for this one. My list below;

 

Stockholm Syndrome

Map Of The Problematique

Bliss

Butterflies and Hurricanes

Muscle Museum

Citizen Erased

Assassin

Micro Cuts

Showbiz

Dead Star

 

Bit disappointed Space Dementia and Dark Shines are missing from the list.

I know Stockholm Syndrome has obviously been played a hello of a lot over the years, but it has started to be dropped from setlists in the last couple of tours. I would really love to see it in a tiny venue as it's one of my favourite live songs.

 

I'm really struggling to narrow my list down! Stockholm will probably not quite make it onto my list which makes me sad.
