Same with Birmingham sadly. Used to be loads of acts big and small playing in the second city whether it be large arenas or smaller venues. These days though they seem to ignore us.

We're spoiled over here, when you consider the size of the US and how far apart the shows on their tours are spaced out. If you're not in one of the big cities, almost everywhere is a 60-100 mile journey to a show.

As I said earlier though, I wouldn't rule Birmingham out just yet.

Got three tickets for Lisbon. By the time I'd figured the site out, it was 20 minutes into the pre-sale but they were still easy to secure.

Sounds like some of the UK dates went instantly.

I got two for Manchester, but you're right. It killed the website and they were gone in under 10 minutes.


O2 Priority sales start at 10am for anyone who missed out

I've stood my ground. I'm not paying a premium to see them at the o2. I really don't like the venue, for both performances and access to it.
Just hope they announce Brum if these sell out.

How much are the UK tickets this time around? Lisbon was only £40 general admission!

Last time I saw Muse in London, it was about £65 per ticket.

With fees, I paid £164 for two!


O2 priority went in under a minute

Holy bejeezuses! I paid forty quid less than that for three tickets!!

This is one of the reasons I'm going to more gigs abroad, plus the atmosphere is often better (depending on the country, obviously).

Yes, we managed to get two tickets standing at the O2. Price does seem a bit steep compared to our previous outing but its obviously still a case of demand outstripping the supply.

Our day trip last month to Chernobyly and Pripyat including transport, guide and lunch for £85 each doesn't quite seem so bad now, as long as you exclude the flight costs for getting there....

£40 is a lot comparatively. Lisbon is a great place to see a gig as everyone is tiny. Muse played the Optimus Alive festival this year which was just over £100 for 3 days I think, and people complain it's too expensive.

Yeah but we were there anyway

Just paid £164 for two standing tickets for the O2. Never been there before. If you wanted seated then it was £54 - 84 I think.

I'd got them all paid for by 9.04 (according to the email) in a very smooth process but I know others had big problems looking at the forums.

We've been trying to get tickets for ages and always failed, even on the presales. So disregarding the fairly large price tag, as a long term muse fan hopefully it will be worth it

Not counting festivals, it's by far the least I've paid to see them live. So comparatively, for me, it's a bargain!

Funnily enough though, I was strongly considering going to the NOS Alive festival this year. I had far too much else going on at the time though.

Got a couple of standing for Glasgow after an initial panic when the Muse website was timing out while trying to retrieve the URL for the pre-sale. Did have a sharp intake of breath when I saw the prices though!

Make sure you have a number of different sites open on Friday. If it's anything like their last arena tour, they'll be gone in a couple of minutes.

Managed to get 2 standing tickets for the 02 on the Monday

£146 is ridiculous and Im not a fan of the 02 or its location but iIhave never seen Muse live and promised myself I have to tick that particular box so Im pretty chuffed.

£222 for 3 seated level one tickets at The O2. Crazy money but it'll be my fifth time seeing them and they never disappoint.

Cant believe their last Wembley stadium gig was six years ago. Can't see why they couldnt play there again.
