I challenge someone to find any reference to Muse bringing an orchestra to Glastonbury.

 

They never said they were going to, and they didn't.

 

yessss they did. It was in a magazine interview from about a week before they started the stadium tour rehearsals. Im sure it said something about "wanting to make it more about the music than the stage design" and stating that they were going to try and do it with an orchestra.

That was pretty fucking nostalgic. The Edge on stage with Muse, holy shit. I got teary.

They were on fire tonight, hands down.

Q magazine. He did say, "I don't want to say it in case it doesn't happen, but..." Then he went on to say how they were going to get an orchestra.

– Glastonbury, what should we expect?

 

Matt Bellamy: I don’t wanna say it in case it doesn’t happen, but we are thinking of doing a full orchestra for Glastonbury. The logistics are going to be fucking hardcore… We’ll keep it formal.

 

This month, the trio from small-town Devon (Teignmouth, pop: 14,413) also lay claim to a few hundred acres of prime rock-festival real estate: they headline the Pyramid Stage on the pivotal Saturday night at Glastonbury. It’s an auspicious moment for old schoolfriends Bellamy, drummer Dom Howard, 32, and bass player Chris Wolstenholme, 31. How will Muse, known for their concert spectaculars, top their normal shows for this special occasion? “We’re thinking we’ll get an orchestra,” says Bellamy.

Well, to your credit, they never confirmed it... I also recall them saying something about rehearsing with an orchestra at one point. Too bad it didn't happen in the end.

 

Anyway, I know some people are still hoping for the orchestra to make an appearance at Wembley at least, but I remember reading something recently that they may never do it in the end because it's too difficult or something :erm: Anyone confirm this one or did I dream about it? (yes, I do dream about reading Muse articles sometimes. :facepalm:)

Exactement, Muse never said they were actually going to do it; yes, they definitely hinted so but that's where it ends.

That was single-handedly the greatest thing i've witnessed all year. I mean, holy shit. U2 and Muse are my two favourite bands. Streets is my favourite U2 song. Favourite band covering favourite U2 song (and doing a kickass job of it btw) = Heaven

Suprisingly I thought that was good. When I saw the rumours about the Edge ddn't expect much but that looked brilliant.

I was watching again this morning and I think it was a massive moment and I'm not even a U2 fan. But they were so happy, and Matt's voice is beautiful. I felt teary watching it again this morning. A perfect moment to exorcise the Glastonbury demons and embrace the future. Poor Bono though, probably wasn't too great for him.

 

I think that little giggle from Matt in the middle was because he was stretching his arm out and it just struck him at that moment that he was doing a Bono.:LOL:

Yes, the famous air grabbing arm move!:LOL: Awww, but I love U2... Oh my, I'm still all hyper because of that cover version with Edge.:D:D:D

In addition to what others have already posted, rehearsing with an orchestra was also mentioned in this interview with Chris.

 

I guess it just didn't work out.
