    New album 'The Resistance' out in October hopefully, and they've just announced a European tour which includes a certain large venue on Dublin Quays on November 7th (My Birthday :) )

    They've recorded a tune called 'United States of Eurasia' which is 13 minutes long and has about 10 different parts.

    Really can't wait to hear this!

    What a year for albums so far!

    Jaysus I used to love that band. Showbiz was all I would listen and the second album was decent enough too, but after that kinda lost interest.

    My favourite Muse album :D Some teen angst classics like Uno, Muscle Museum and Sunburn!

    I dunno,I tried and failed many,many times to get into them,but I just find nothing there to bring me back to the albums for a second time.

    I think you really need to see them in a live environment (preferably indoors) to fully appreciate them

    Maybe so but my financial situation has put paid to any gigs for me this summer.

    My favourite band ever and I've loved everything they've released, but a 13 minute, 10 part song sounds too much like modern Green Day so I'm sceptical to say the least.

    I'll still go see them for a 7th time though when they hit Oz.

    I'm so excited for album/tour!

    Hmm now that you say it I've only seen them outside so the indoor gig will be a new experience!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 869 The Hustler


    Seen em in The Temple Bar Music Centre/Button Factory when I was 14 back in 2000 supporting Elastica

    There were about 50 people there and it was a life-changing experience! Unreal! First time they ever played Plug In Baby too :D

    seen them last year , was amazing ! defo going to this :) ( oxygen , muse , placebo .. its looking good :D )


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,906 ✭✭✭ Daysha


    I went to see them in Marlay Park last year (front row of the pit :)) and it was absolutely insane, hands down the best gig of my life. If the O2 is half as good as that night, it'll still be an amazing experience.


  • Registered Users Posts: 202 ✭✭ MrSparkle


    Just got 2 tickets in the o2 presale thingy. That gig in Marlay park was awesome, saw them in the Point 2 years ago aswell where they were also awesome! They're a fantastic live band

    Yeah i was massive fan in the day, had all the albums and the live album and all but absolution was 50% awesome & 50% crap, and everything after that was just meh to me. A band that seem to have had their popularity surge the more mediocre their output

    Very true, didn't really like that album at all, Black Holes and Revelations was better though.

    I just bought pre sale tickets today for them later this year. can anyone tell me are the pre-sale tickets for seating sold from the back of the arena down, because this is the 2nd time now I've done it this year and I've ended up further away than expected.

    Not that I mind cause I hear all the views are great from inside the O2 seating area. I've only been once and was standing.

    Or it could be a Citizen Erased type affair only longer, now that would be awesome.

    I have seen Muse live aout 8 times, including the acoustic set in the olympia after their gear didnt make it to Dublin. Last time i seen them was in Wembley, was awesome.

    To be honest though ive totally lost intrest in them and their later stuff...although origin of symmetry will always be one of my favourite albums ever.

    You're right sorry, it was The Point.

    It was the support band JJ72 who lost their gear and played an acoustic set, Muse were fully electric that night and blew the roof off the place- best gig I've ever seen in the Olympia!

    Ye the memory is hazy!! It was awesome, but i prefer the dates a few years back when they did the olympia. I went both nights it was that awesome!! Them gigs and the one they did in dublin castlee were the best of them all i think....

    Yup, the 2 nights in The Olympia for the Absolution tour were deadly, still prefered the first time they played it in 2000 with JJ72 though!

    Dublin Castle was weird, The Hives were supporting but I just wasn't feeling it like I normally do at Muse gigs- getting kicked out twice for crowd surfing and being pissed as a fart didn't help! :D

    Bought me a standing ticket just there, muse + a venue like the o2 = win.

    Not as much win as when they used to play smaller venues like the Olympia. The last gig in The Point in 07 was horrible in comparison.

    New album 'The Resistance' out in October
    Yeeeeeessssssss


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,590 ✭✭✭ Pigwidgeon


    saw them at oxegen in 2007 and in marley park last year.
    by far one of the best band I've seen live, can't wait for the new album.
    Am broke at the moment so not sure if i'll be able to get a ticket, but if they don't sell out I'll definitly buy one in a few weeks!

    Does anyone else not think that it i a seriously dodgy album name no?

    I think it's great! 'Origin of Symmetry' is a ridiculous album title :D
