It certainly has the Edge'y Streets all over it.

They don't have a paid membership either. Only thing that might help is if people pool together and buy extra tix. Tuesday is gonna be pure hell. I will be at work too.
Oh, dear.

I've only got the one date for my area (there is also Chicago, too, I guess, but Minneapolis is closer and we're all much more familiar with that city). But good luck, I hope it all gets sorted out well for you and everyone else.

I definitely hear a "Streets" vibe to that song, yes. Which would make sense, given Muse did cover that song at Glastonbury a couple years ago.

"Madness" would fit in on Zooropa, yeah, but I also think it wouldn't be too out of place on Achtung Baby, either.

Hopefully the presale won't be through Ticketmaster, because I can't access that site from my office computer. As soon as I get into the office tomorrow, I'm blocking off my calendar.

Muse does fanclub presales, no? Probably the best bet.

good luck to the west coasters today hope you get tix.

Yeah, I saw that it was pretty easy! Makes me feel better about hanging back and going for MSG tomorrow - was real tempted to buy a NJ ticket too, but the two shows are too close together and I'd rather do MSG. Hopefully they will do another go round in Fall 2013 or something too.

Hooray for you guys getting tickets! I'm glad it all went off well, and hope we hear of more shows soon for you guys who are still waiting on them.

Yeah, I'll have to wait until this weekend before I start looking around-just don't have the money on me right now. Will see how things go.

Disappointed by this album. Not that I expected Much after The Resistance. It starts off oh so promising, then quickly fades away. Will probably still go see them live, because most of the songs will sound better

In for Madison Square Garden! Guess people are not all that hip to the fan club pre-sale since it is still pretty easy to score a ticket through that.

Got my GAs for MSG... Was easy but they were sold out with a few minutes. Only seats are up now.

I got a seat ticket for this one...Muse is the only band with GA in my rotation that I will not do GA for because it gets pretty wild up front at their shows, at least the ones I've been to.

I'm not too concerned being up front.. I have before and as long as you are on the rail you are fine. 2nd row and back can get chaotic. I have GAs for 3 shows so far and I just plan on hanging back at soundboard.

Well, that was a breeze indeed. Floors for Vancouver. I was worried that the snl advertising and the free membership fan club was going to make this a lot harder that it actually was.
Bring on the Madness!
