Muse Arena Tour 2016

Announced on Chris Evans' Radio 2 show this morning. Arenas in April with the stage in the middle of the crowd.

Getting tickets will be as much fun as their last arena tour, no doubt (gone in 60 seconds)!

I will probably see them abroad again. In 2013, I went to the stadium gigs at both the Emirates and Amsterdam ArenA. Amsterdam was a much better experience, and decent tickets for big gigs abroad always seem to be much easier to get hold of.

Seems to be part of the UK missing there, as usual. Part of a wider issue of why acts don't book Wales. I am sure there are many humorous reasons why not. But it does seem prevalent.

They're doing Belfast on the 6th April, also.

Tickets are in the £50-85 bracket apparently.

It'll be the usual panic and then they'll say 'Oh, look we'll do these dates as well. Plenty room in the schedule.'

It always is with greedy bands. I would prefer more smaller gigs but no, more work for them.

They played plenty of halls but presumably you missed those? Since then they've become increasingly popular across the world, meaning that the idea of a lengthy UK tour is not feasible. It is not feasible due to the volume of casual, new fans that missed those early shows. The idea that this equates to 'greed' is perplexing. The tour is what it is, either go or don't go.

Arenas are the smaller gigs for these big bands aren't they? Apart from promo tours in very small places, its either arenas or stadiums just because of their popularity now.

And if they do really small gigs people just complain they can't get tickets or scalpers buy them all up. Once bands hit a certain size they really don't have many options for playing live and keeping everyone happy.

I know its all to do with their huge popularity. I just get the right hump if they aren't on my doorstep.

Glasgow/Manchester are just unfathomable for me.

But mackemland is easy. It does get some huge acts.

There may be additional dates yet (possibly Birmingham on 14 April). No idea why it wouldn't have already been announced though.

I'd love to see them live again; saw them back in 2009 (supported by The Big Pink) and it was an awesome experience.
I've logged on to their site with my user ID from when I got the pre-order 6 years ago, where do I find the code?

Also, O2 London - £52 & £84 for tickets? Bloody hell! Is the £84 standing?
I honestly don't really like the O2 as a venue; would much rather somewhere like the NIA at Birmingham or Wembley Arena.

Click the "Members" button at the top of the screen. It should be on the next screen that you see (under "Drones World Tour").
