Can't be worse than last time. :chuckle:

 

I'm going to wait and see how the other US gigs turn out before buying a tix.

Well, I'm going to this. The bar is about as low as it can get so there's very high chances for improvement. Seated because I couldn't get GA. That's fine by me if the crowd is as it was last time.

I live in England and have seen Muse 7 times in the UK. I am on holiday in Oakland/San Francisco in March and have been trying to book tickets for this.

 

Ticketmaster seems to suggest that tickets are no longer available. Is this genuinely the case? If the worst comes to the worst and I cannot buy in advance, does this venue have a box office to sell unsold tickets to those who turn up on the day?

Tickets shouldn't be sold out, it's possible it's just down for maintenance since it's currently the middle of the night there?

 

Thanks. I think you were right about it being down for maintenance. Had further problems with ticketmaster after that, where they were not authorising me access. However, finally, I have a lower level ticket. Would have preferred GA, but these seemed to have gone.

 

Looking forward to my first American Muse experience,. Seen them 6 times in London and once at the Download Festival in the English countryside.

Same.

 

I can't even find anyone to go with me since the last Oakland show. But maybe I'll just go by myself.

Five days here so far and my jet lag is still chronic. Not stayed awake later than 9.00 pm so far - which my UK body clock thinks is 5.00 am. I am going to have to rely on adrenaline to get through this one.

Currently lined up at the 66st entrance. Apparently we aren’t allowed to line up at the BART bridge that leads into the coliseum/arena entrance.

Crowd really enjoyed Walk the Moon.  Can't deny that they were good.

Matt's never going to stop referring to Oakland as San Francisco. :classic_laugh:  

I'll write more tomorrow but that was very fun.

Anybody queue for this show?  Curious as to how much barrier was available since it sounds like the VIPs had 15 mins to get inside.

I didn't queue, but I had friends that did and they still made it on barrier. I was probably 80-something in line and the B-stage barrier was completely full, but there were spots in the middle runway, and front of the stage.

Probably my favorite show out of the three that I attended. Sound was perfect and they looked like they were having fun! Crowd seemed into it as well, so I’m sure that helped.  Really wish I could do more shows this tour. 😭 It’s a wonderful spectacle! 💕

thanks for the info, and great pics as always! 

how far back were you in the crowd?  i'd give anything for that view of the b-stage but i'm too short.  this setup is not very kind to people like me. 😞

This was my 7th Muse gig and it was my 2nd favourite - the Download Festival in the UK ranks as my best. I think the two hour length and the metal medley adds a lot to this tour.

It was noticeable that the standing crowd don't mosh for Muse as UK standing crowds do, however, the audience did seem to be really into it. I am not sure that the audience knew the ST album tracks, however, the well known songs were greeted very favourably.
