Muse Live @ Emirates Stadium, London 26/05/2013
I will start by saying this: Matthew Bellamy has more energy than anyone could ever get. This is obviously a very positive point for an entertainer! But more seriously, the man delivered a two hour gig running and jumping from one side of the stage to the other, without having his incredible tenor voice failing him once. He looks so passionate, confident, and overwhelmed with joy at the sight of this gargantuan crowd dancing, it seems like he was born to be on stage.
Muse as a band were as thrilling as their lead singer, putting as much passion and ardour in their music. The event resembled more a spectacle rather than an ordinary concert, involving a mind-boggling stage setting. The themes were generally very political, drawing in for example a banker collapsing while chasing bank notes confetti at the end of Animals, or a businesswoman showering herself to death with petrol during Feeling Good.Although, the most enchanting performance was Blackout, which was illustrated with a giant lightbulb wandering in the sky above the band, with a ballerina coming out of it, floating and spinning around, throwing confetti.
The band offered their fans not less than 27 songs, including two encores. They came back for their second encore dressed in red, displaying revolution-like images of themselves during Uprising, leaving the audience feeling as serene and powerful as they were on stage.
