Muse in Concert! (Basically a Post with Stellar Pictures)

I usually post about my writerly adventures. Muse totally counts, right? They had to write their own music, and you can tell they spent some time thinking out the lyrics because it's not like "Baby, baby, baby, hey, yeah, yeah, yeah." Instead they say "green belts wrapped around our minds, And endless red tape to keep the truth confined."

Totally poetic.

Anyway, Muse has been touring North America this year, and I made a trip out to go see them. They're best known for their songs "Supermassive Black Hole," "Hysteria," "Time is Running Out," "Uprising," and "Madness." They're one of my favorite bands (Creed is my first favorite), and Muse put on one of the best shows I've ever seen. And, their music was better live, which is always a great sign.

What surprised me is that they only played fast songs, and they played nonstop for about an hour and a half. No introductions. No "Hey, this is the song we're playing next," or "I got the idea for this song..." Only music. Even I was getting a little worn out from rocking out, and I wasn't even playing.

Also, as you can see by the pictures, they put on a good show with lights, lasers, strobe lights, screens, and mist. Totally awesome.

And, if you're curious, here is how they sounded live:

Here is a pro video:

Any one else made a trip out to see them or another concert recently?


  1. I saw them in Vegas and again in SLC. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them live! I've been to four of their concerts, and they are high energy rockin -every-time. They don't do much, if any, talking. It really is just about the music with them. SO talented! I just can't get enough. I have a huge crush on Chris and I'm not afraid to say it. You have me bouncing in my seat just remembering the concert hehe :) LOVE THESE GUYS!

  2. Oh, another group that does phenomenal live shows is Depeche Mode. My friend and I went out to Santa Barbara a couple weeks ago for their show. Yes, they are still making awesome new music :) Definitely check them out live if you have a chance.

    1. Four times!! Awesome! Unfortunately I wasn't that familiar with them last time they toured here, but I've changed my ways. I can't wait to see them again. You are right, they're great live! I love them too! I'll have to check out that other band.


I love comments :)
