Muse thread - new album and autumn UK tour

http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music/news/20061204_muse.shtml

Blimey. Never thought Muse would get this popular, pretty bold move to go from arenas to a huge outdoor show like this. Bet it sells out though.

Are they really big enough for stadiums?

Even if this does 'Sell Out' you should be able to pick up tickets for well before face value a day or so before the gig. If you are prepared to wait then touts will be practically giving them away outside

I think those recent Wembley Arena gigs were pretty popular - eBay tickets seemed to keep their value pretty high all the way up to the day (didn't check THAT closely though).

Was hoping to pick up an Arena ticket but they seemed to be very expensive on eBay.

Slightly surprised by a Stadium gig - thought maybe something like Hyde Park (mini festival a la Foo's) at a push.

A similar thing was said about them headlining Glasto iirc.

Glasto is a totally different kettle of fish as the tickets weren't being sold on the basis of their name alone.

But the crowd was a biggie and they went down a storm. Morrissey hardly filled half the field and I'd have thought he was a bigger act.

It will sell out.

There the best live band currently playing.

If they cannot sell out, it says something about live music

How many people does the Wembley arena hold?

I have no doubt that they could fill a 75000 capacity stadium, especially if it's a one night only thing. They could really go to town on the visual/lighting side of things.

Would love to see them in a stadium.

I personally would love to see that, it would be a massive feat to fill this and if they pull it off it can really re-affirm their status as the best live band around at the moment!

Further BBC article: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/6207652.stm

I'm quite amazed as I didn't think they're big enough for Wembley Stadium. They'd likely sell out if it's one date, but do they really have the kind of show and interaction that the likes of Queen used to have?

The fans have of course wet themselves over this http://board.muse.mu/showthread.php?t=38017

Matt's no Freddie on the interactivity front, but Muse are most definitely a stadium quality band in terms of both live performance and sheer spectacle. I'll be there.

I suspect they'll have a few decent support acts to beef up the gig.

I can imagine them pulling it off, although that's an awful lot of tickets. Hopefully they'll do something elsewhere in the country too. They're one of the best live acts we've got. There was some talk on 6music of Kasabian supporting them, I think?

There's an FAQ here: http://board.muse.mu/showthread.php?t=38168

But no news on pricing or presale tickets. Only facts so far are it's on the 16th June and tickets go on sale Saturday 9th December, 9am GMT.

Reckon they'll be the first band to play the new Wembley? I know they're the only ones announced so far, but I thought that the first artist to play there would be one of the true giants - Rolling Stones, U2 etc.
