NME Muse play Wembley Stadium mega gig

Matt Bellamy and co are on form at biggest show of their lives

Muse have played the biggest gig of their lives tonight (June 16) at Wembley Stadium in north London.

The band marked their first night at the giant venue (they play again on June 17) with an epic two hour performance.

With the stage decorated with giant satellite dishes, futuristic antennas, giant white balls and thousands of dazzling lights the band's set was equal to the stadium's impressive setting.

Surprising the expectant audience, the band emerged in the middle of the crowd in a fountain of glitter before walking along an extended catwalk to the stage and kicking off the show with triumphant opener 'Knights Of Cydonia'.

Playing in front of a giant screen which mixed stage shots with pre-prepared video clips, plus frontman Matt Bellamy and bassist Chris Wolstenholme roaming the vast stage, occasionally peforming from special ramped-up areas on either side, Muse worked hard to engage the vast audience.

"How you doing Wembley?" drummer Dominic Howard asked the masses after early songs including 'City Of Delusion' and 'Map Of The Problematique' which was been recorded at the Wembley shows for release as a live single. "It looks like you're having fun, we are!"

The band then tore through a career-spanning set including 'Sunburn' which Bellamy introduced - seated at a glass-topped grand piano - as "the very first song from our very first album".

With the whole crowding bonding to loudly sing-a-long to 'Invincible', the singer then paused to acknowledge the sheer scale of the giant gig.

"How are you doing at the back?" He asked squinting into the distance. "I hope you see us! This one is for you."

Muse then launched into 'Starlight' before quickly following it with 'Man Of Mystery', the Shadows cover the band recorded especially for the CD which is been given away free with copies of NME which are on UK newsstands now.

Finishing their initial set with an expanded version of 'New Born' - complete with spotlights in the centre of the satellite dishes illuminating the whole stadium - the band then returned for a climactic first encore.

Re-taking to the stage Bellamy encourage the crowd to hold their mobile phones in the air filling the venue with tiny sparkling lights during 'Soldiers Poem' which he dedicated to "unsung heroes".

However Muse then trumped themselves bringing on two acrobats who, suspended by giant white balloons, soared above the crowd during a dreamy rendition of 'Blackout'.

With 'Plug In Baby' exploding Wembley back into life after the mid-air dancers, the band then teasingly left the stage once again but were soon back to finish things off.

"Thanks you guys have been fantastic," declared Bellamy on his return. "And thanks for making us the first artists to sell out [the new] Wembley-fucking-Stadium!"

The band then launched into closer 'Take A Bow' which they concluded with by unleashing giant flames right at the end of the song, before soaking up the applause and leaving the stage for the final time.
Ohh and the setlist:

'Knights Of Cydonia'
'Hysteria'
'Supermassive Blackhole'
'Map Of The Problematique'
'City Of Delusion'
'Butterflies & Hurricanes'
'Citizen Erased'
'Hoodoo'
'Feeling Good'
'Sunburn'
'Invincible'
'Starlight'
'Man Of Mystery'
'Time Is Running Out'
'Newborn'

'Soldiers Poem'
'Unintended'
'Blackout'
'Plug In Baby'

'Micro Cuts'
'Stockholm Syndrome'
'Take A Bow'

No Bliss!

Microcuts made up for Bliss Though I would've preferred if they'd left out Hoodoo and played Assassin or Muscle Museum, but I thought the setlist was good - I thought Man Of Mystery was brilliant too



This was just before they came on, there was ticker tape everywhere - it looked amazing.



Wembley arch.



Just as the arrived at the stage.



Knights



Feeling Good

I have pics of the acrobats and the huge balloons, but I don't have time to upload them now. The gig was amazing, better than anything I've been to before It's safe to say they completely blew me away

Okay, I decided to make time to upload a few more, it's not like I have work to do or anything



During Blackout



More Blackout.



Ignore the heads, my photography skills are shite - there were balloons everywhere, it looked incredible.



Again, ignore the head, this was during Take A Bow, the last song I wish I was going back today, there were loads of touts sellings tickets so I could go buy one, but I hate being ripped off

Aaaaah this looks as ridiculously epic and over-the-top as I expected, I love the baloons and satellite dishes.

Wish I was there, but now I guess I'll look forward to watching the DVD on our nice big new TV screen.

Apparently they did record the second night, there were a load of cameras on cranes and schizz that weren't there on the Saturday - though I think we got the better setlist Microcuts > Bliss

I found some professional pics that I thought I'd share;
