Right from the beginning you get to have a laugh as some very cliché "Royal" Music comes on (dance of the knights). The Band comes up from the floor, almost in a satirical manner as Matthew Bellamy holds his hand up to his heart.
They run up to the stage followed by their possé of Raincoat bodyguards as a robot rides up the stage bringing Matt his first of many guitars.
As the Band gains their composure they start off with the Space-Western, Knights of Cydonia.

One of the Most spectacular things about the band's live setup is Matthew Bellamy's guitars. On a select few guitars (all made by Hugh Manson) he has custom KAOSS Pads (the White Midi Controller below the Bridge) that he runs through a Digi-tech Whammy. This creates one of the most transcendent effects I have ever heard, especially on Supermassive Black Hole
As They get through the concert, they continually deliver with extra tags and improvisational sections on the end of each song. This, combined with their exemplary stage-presence and superlative lighting, creates one hell of a show.
When the helicopter is flying around the stadium, and Matt is wailing away on the guitar and vocals, and women start floating around in balloons doing acrobatics, and Dominic Howard pounds away at the drums, it finally hits you; Muse could quite possibly be the best live band to have ever lived. Or at least close to it.
My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
