    I kinda agree. I could see that Muse themselves were amazing, light show was their best ever but the crowd destroyed it for me. Couldn't enjoy it at all. Thought the obsessive 16 year old Muse fans had gone away!

    The crowd weren't as crazy as I would have liked but it was still a good gig nonetheless! Bit dissapointed with the lights and stuff, they're a lot better in outdoor venues IMO

    Think the only way we're ever going to see the old muse again is by watching hullabaloo on dvd.

    I still stick that on regularly, it's epic. That's when Muse peaked imo.

    Fantastic live band but like I said before, I was more let down by the crowd than anything else! It was still buzzing but just not go completely mad jump up and down crazy!

    I didn't go to the Dublin show, but saw them in Manchester on Thurs night at the Arena. They were brilliant - great light show, technically excellent, and a good play list for the night. Crowd was pretty pumped too. Definitely one of the best gigs I've been at

    Definitely. Reminds me of Dublin castle in 2002, savage gig. Can't believe its been 10 years.

    Crowd in the O2 were shocking, really really poor.

    Hopefully they'll go back to basics on the new album, no singles and something non-commercial and alienate this 'new breed' of Muse fan

    I predict an angry marital break up, divorce and bitter child custody battle leading to their most insane, riff-tastic album since OOS! :D

    I just dont get this attitude at all. The crowd at the gig were no worse than any other gig where there are more than 10000 people. They got into it, certainly from where I was standing. The new songs worked well live too. I was like others and initially I disliked the album but since the gig I've listened more and it probably has no more filler than any of their other albums (possibly with the exception of Origin of Symmetry).

    Sonically they sounded fantastic, in fact better than I can ever remember them being. Did they trash the place up? No, but its been a long time since they were like that anyway. I missed out of their Resistance performances so I haven't seen them since 06/07 and they were still as good as I remember.

    I thought at the start the sound was off as I couldn't make Matt out properly during Supremacy but he obviously made an adjustment to the levels and then he was crystal clear all night. His voice was excellent.

    Its like people want them to be only playing venues like Whelans or something for them to be any good. Its nonsense, they've moved on, their sound is a bit changed (yes I do personally prefer the riffy stuff) but its still them.

    One thing I do hope is that they do an arena tour and play the Aviva (like has been hinted), then we might get a longer set with more old favourites.

    They will do a stadium tour next year.. same pattern now for the last few albums. Ireland never got a stadium gig (usually just Marlay or Oxegen) but with the Aviva sitting pretty it would be pretty cool!

    Honestly, I don't think they could sell it out thou, that's the big problem!!

    I think they will play Oxegen next year, I hope they do play the Aviva but I cant see it selling out.

    I agree, think they'd struggle on their own to sell the Aviva. If they were clever and got someone good to support (maybe Bloc Party or someone similar with a decent following) it could work.

    Personally, I wouldn't go see them in Oxegen, too old for there these days so I really hope its their own gig. :(

    What do you mean? I really like falling away with you btw


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,178 ✭✭✭ splashthecash


    Anyone heard anything re a Muse gig next year in the Aviva? That would be savage!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,183 hypermuse


    At the O2 gig Dom said (might have said) "see you next year at the aviva"

    Thats the only proper source for now unless someone who works at the Aviva knows differently.

    Id say he would have a good idea of unannounced gigs!

    As in they haven't played it live, They have played all the other songs off the album apart from it. They have never played falling away with you live ever.

    Gotcha

    Muse have announced 14 stadium dates in Europe for next year,

    The Aviva is not on the list, Kinda hope its not coz they aint gonna sell it out.

    They aint even playing Wembley next year, selected to play the somewhat smaller Emirates stadium instead.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,233 ✭✭✭ Meesared


    With decent support, they would have no issue, and its gonna get announced eventually

    I think so too.. will prob get tickets to the Emirates either way. I've heard it supposed to be a pretty good stadium for a gig..


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,233 ✭✭✭ Meesared


    Just thought there, Wembley is probably being used for football that time of year isnt it?

    Just checked, its hosting the UEFA Cup final this year when theyre playing the Emirates, prolly why they went for it instead.

    I did see that but they could have worked 2 dates around that if they wanted to I'm sure.. From what I've read its a case of something fresh apparently, as in the band think they have done that so move on!

    I don't buy that as an excuse, bout 120,000 tickets on sale at the Emirates whereas there would be 180,000 at Wembley..
