I think people voting for Exogenesis will backfire massively. There is absolutely NOTHING to indicate that it's all three parts, and even when you click the snippet on settheset, it's just part 1.

 

email states its just part one

Held off on voting because I suspected more songs might get added. I was right, but I'm still skeptical just in case they add more!

Confirmed by set the set that this is the Final list and nothing new will be added from here on.

But do we trust them..? I would be gutted if MK Ultra or Escape were added after I submitted my vote!

The only source for how many tickets went in the presales was a random guy on Facebook, and the Reddit source was someone quoting Jobby quoting the FB guy... I'm not sure how solid that is. :LOL:

 

None of us had long to get tickets, it wouldn't surprise me if there were a few softies in, but I imagine most of us are the hardcore fans

If MK Ultra is Added, I'm going to be fucked off more than I was when they released the second list

I'm undecided about whether I should fly in the night before or the same morning. Do you think people will camp overnight for this? I'd want to be in the first two/three rows.

 

It's not that hard to get close to the front at Shepherd's Bush. I started at the back for Biffy Clyro a few months ago, half way through the set I was only 3-4 rows from the front. You just need to have your wits about you :happy:

Couple of people probs will but you don't need to join them to get first 2/3 rows. Rock up before 11 and I'd say you're safe. I got there at 10/11 for Manchester Academy in 2015 (which is all standing) and got 2nd row easy, could've got barrier if I hadn't bought a shirt.

The question wasn't about if it was "hardcore" fans in the presale, but what percentage of tickets were available to them.

Was that setlist poll that only spat out Bliss, Citizen Erased or a staple on the 2010 tour done on the official site?
Yes.

well, i'm satisfied w/ whatever gets played.

 

it is what it is. the votes will come in and either rarities/obscurities (from day one or due to the passage of time) will be in the setlist...or they won't.

 

the band will honor all votes and play songs directly in correlation with the voting, veto/disregard some/most, include a few but not all, decide to play a song for the first time on a whim even though it might not be in the top ten, or some odd combo of all of the above.

 

in the (unlikely? likely?) event that a few obscurities do get played, however, i hope someone with a decent camera will roll on this for posterity's sake and upload it so that all can enjoy, after the fact, what ultimately goes down.

 

or...pro-shot...and have it be a xmas gift or some such.

Think I'm gonna try and find a way to set my mini iPad up and leave it on record while I enjoy the gig.

 

Almost certain some kinda pro-shot will make it for the xmas present though, either this year or next, since it's pretty much the only notable gig they're doing this year.

that's good.

 

i don't plan on being one of the 2k in there toting any of my HQ recording devices, but hopefully you (and/or few others to boot) will find the grit to git 'er done, one way or another.

I'm sure I saw SOUSOUS posting in here earlier - he usually does great recordings of Muse gigs :).

 

Otherwise, I'm sure someone might be up for doing a fan edit of all the amateur footage. And I'm be astonished if the gig isn't filmed in some way - most gigs are.

 

TKirk will be doing something, probs.

Eternally Missed? I'd say that and SFA both have a v good chance the way voting looks like it's going.

Haven't voted yet so just checking - are there any songs being voted for that Matt/any of them realistically are unlikely to play that well these days due to difficulty/singing constraints etc?

 

I don't really want to have paid to see them sound like a cover band trying to play something really obviously can't pull off anymore. Not that I don't want to see an entire set list of crazyness but I'd rather see say, a really good performance of Hyper Music or Muscle Museum than a really shit one of Eternally Missed* just because of how rare it is.

 

 

 

* just an example, I actually have no idea how difficult that is to sing

They've repeatedly said the reason they haven't played Falling Away With You is because they can't work out how to play it live, so there's that. Then there's also the songs like Exogenesis and 2nd Law Isolated system that will basically just be someone pressing the play button.
