I voted on that earlier

I really question the sanity of the people who made the nominations Like, Keith Richards? Really?

Perhaps they mean "hottest", not just in terms of looks, but in terms of popularity? That's about the only explanation I can think of, 'cause "Keith Richards" and "hot" really should never have to be in the same sentence.

There are a couple other guys in that list I do personally agree with. But I still voted for Matt and Dom .

Holy shiiiiiiiiit last night's Muse show at the Acer Arena was fucking awesome! Made the Brisbane concert look like a tame rehearsal in comparison. Even a couple of dumb drunk bogans I was sitting next to couldn't spoil it, at least they shut up amiably enough when I finally had enough and told them off.

I was at the arena at around 7.45 pm, when I walked out of the station I was greeted by a wonderful sunset and Black Holes & Revelations blasted from the speakers. Biffy Clyro were opening this time, I didn't mind the songs of theirs that I'd heard on the radio but I missed their entire set because I was stuck in a giant and verrry slow-moving merchandise queue. 40 minutes later I finally walked away with a couple of T-shirts, grabbed an overpriced wrap from the food stall and went to find my seat.

Next to the modest Brisbane venue Acer Arena felt absolutely huge! Turns out I was sitting on the third level to the right of the stage, in a second row. Because the third level was overhanging the lower section and the barrier in front was just tall enough to cover my ankles, I didn't have the nerve to stand up during the show because of the vision I had in my head of me tripping and plunging head first into the audience below

From the very start of the show I could tell that it was going to blow Monday night out of the water; I could just feel that there was a kind of connection between the band members and between the band and the audience that was missing at the last show. Matt spoke maybe three times during the whole gig, but he was just so into it and managed to interact with the audience in a non-verbal fashion, throwing cheesy rock gestures and spotlighting the crowd with his mirror guitar before Plug In Baby. After they played the final song you could tell that he didn't want to leave the stage, while Dom and Chris were bowing he was walking around with his guitar, playing random riffs. Dom and Chris also looked like they were having a ball, I'm surprised Chris' head didn't fall off after all that headbanging

- The setlist was more traditional, with Uprising as an opener, Exogenesis the first encore song and Knights of Cydonia closing the show. Yes mixing up things is all well and good but I just think that this order worked way way better than on Monday night. I was also very happy to hear the harmonica intro to Knights

- They kept Citizen Erased and Sunburn and added New Born and Stockholm Syndrome. After the Big Day Out I was over the shock of not seeing Matt play the intro to New Born, so I could live with that.

- I could appreciate the light show better from my seat, and wow it looked absolutely amazing I look forward to reliving it with my Mum on the first Melbourne night!

- Matt played a good chunk of the Chopin piece that on the album closes United States of Eurasia. He also threw in the riff from AC/DC's Back in Black, and it was pretty awesome to hear the whole arena sing the first chorus of House of the Rising Sun.

Glad you had an awesome time, Saracene . Especially given the show seemed to have a little more to it this time around.

And way to tell off obnoxious drunk people!
