In keeping up with some of the major tours that will be hitting our side of the pond I present to you some of the press release that I just received about the band Muse. Check it out.
The Press Release:
LONDON, ENGLAND – OCTOBER 19, 2015 – Today Muse announced more cities of the US Leg of their Drones Tour in support of their critically and commercially acclaimed album Drones.
‘The Drones World Tour’ will see band perform for the first time “in the round” from the middle of the arena. The band are known for pushing boundaries in terms of their stage production and the Drones World Tour will be no exception. This stage design and configuration will give fans a true 360 degree audio/visual sensory experience. Muse’s tours have been described by the international press as “epic”, “amazing” “ambitious” and this time will be no exception. The band has just completed a spectacular Summer European Festival run which saw some of the best reviews of their career. In select markets the band will be supported by X Ambassadors (X) and in other select markets Phantogram (P). Since their debut in 1994, Muse have released seven studio albums selling upwards of 17 million albums worldwide. Drones, the group’s seventh album, topped the UK charts for two weeks in June, whilst simultaneously topping the charts in the USA, a first for the band. In total the album reached No 1 in a staggering 23 countries including France, Japan, Australia, Netherlands and Switzerland.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I realize this is not a Metal tour of any kind but having heard the powerful music that Muse delivers on record a number of times over the past few years and seeing videos that have been posted online makes me think that this is something I need to see in person to expand my own and my site reader horizons. Fortunately for our neck of the woods there are two regional dates with the Brooklyn and Newark appearances. This is a really exciting band in my humble opinion and I love checking out stuff that I have never before seen in the live sense so I am going to do my best to be at one or both of these area shows. Craving something that rocks and yet is outside of your Metal worlds box? Then I highly recommend this one. What do you think of this particular tour? Let me know in the comments, especially if you have seen the band and can inform us about what we are in store for.
