Anyone else enjoyed playing Knights of Cydonia on Guitar Hero 3?

I'm back from the Sydney show!

I arrived to the Sydney Entertainment Centre at around 7.00pm and joined the queue for general admission; by the looks of it, I was the oldest person in the line as it consisted mainly of teenagers. Once inside I decided not to try getting a spot near the centre, which everyone else seemed to do, and instead took a spot in the second row on the far left.

I missed out on the supporting act in Melbourne, and as far as supporting bands go the Checks weren't bad, a nice short energetic set. Their singer was the biggest show-off, prancing and dancing and posing around the stage like a rooster.

I've already gushed about Muse's Melbourne show so if I had to use even bigger superlatives this time around I'd have to go even more over-the-top than the band I'm raving about. But let's just say it confirmed my view that general admission is One True Way to experience a rock concert. When you're watching the gig from afar, you feel like a spectator, up close you feel more like a participant. As much as I loved the Melbourne show, a seat at the back of the arena simply doesn't compare with standing mere metres away from the stage, watching Matt Bellamy jump, kick, spin around in circles, drop to the knees, strike cheesy rock poses, do windmills, smile like a shy child between the songs, wail into the microphone like a pitch-perfect banshee and violate his piano and guitars (including the glittertastic red one!). I also love GA for the chance to see the band members interact with each other; it was priceless to see Chris and Matt grin at each other like a couple of school kids during one of the songs, My only minor annoyance, though it may sound silly, was this: no man, including a fanciable British rock god, should think that it's ok to appear in public with white underwear sticking out above the low black pants. It's just plain wrooooong!

I can never remember the setlists, but the biggest thrill for me was Bliss which I never heard live before. They also let out giant confetti baloons during the song; one of them landed onstage and Matt popped it with his guitar before walking off. Other variations included Ruled By Secrecy (which I actually recorded in full but then erased by mistake), and Citizen Erased which I bagged a few pages ago but appreciate a lot more now that I've heard it live. They also did two encores, which I figured they would since there was no chance in hell that they wouldn't play Knights of Cydonia before the end.

LOL, "violate", good choice of word there. Advice to live by, I'll definitely keep this in mind.

Hahaha!

Love the mention of the guys grinning at each other between songs-awwwwww . Nice pictures, too, and some great songs mentioned there (hehe, it's fun to watch Matt run around and pop a balloon, isn't it?). Glad you had a good time!

By the way, if you want to get an official setlist, MuseWiki is quite good at posting that sort of thing, so the one from your show should be up sometime soon, I'd imagine-here's the link to all the shows and such if you're interested:

Again, glad you enjoyed the show .

It seems like there's some made up stuff thrown in on the expert setting (maaaaybe on hard too). Still a lot of fun to play, though.

They did that to Message in a Bottle on Guitar Hero II...there's some stuff at the end that definitely isn't in the song

I can't wait to try it though

Yeah, the Guitar Hero's do that from time to time. I always like when I realize I'm playing a synthesizer or drum part via guitar.... That or extra notes that aren't actually in the song, developers must have been hearing things!

Not really, to be honest. Matt's voice is a lot more nasal, less throatiness in the middle voice, and, uh, well just more on key to be honest

to each their own then.. I think they sound alike in that song. Not in any others but that one for some reason.. and this is IMO..

Eh...I hear a slight similarity-I can see where you might make the comparison. I don't think it's dead on, personally, but there's the occasional bit where I can hear it. And like you said, 'tis your opinion .

I do know that this makes me want to go listen to the song again now, though . Think I shall do that.

Adelaide 14/11/07

Well, it's taken me almost a week to get around to posting back here again after the Adelaide show last Wednesday night.

All I can say, is that I have not been able to get the night and the music out of my head for the last week!! Muse just completely blew me away - as far as rock shows go (and I've been to MANY!!!) This was right up there, probably in my top 3 or 4 concerts of all time!

The power of the music, Matt's gorgeous vocals, his dramatic piano playing (i wish i could play HALF as good as him!!), The energy of the other guys, the INCREDIBLE light show - it all just combined perfectly for one HELL of a show!!

...My only regret is that I was up in the stands. I was hoping to have been pregnant by now, so didn't want to risk getting GA tickets, and then not being able to get seats if I needed them. All I wanted to do all night tho was just get down there in that mosh pit - it just was going off!!! I probably would have looked like a complete dick, being twice the age of most of the kids in there, but it just looked like the energy down there was incredible!!

The setlist was:

01 - Take a bow
02 - Map of the Problematique
03 - New Born
04 - Butterflies and Hurricanes
05 - Supermassive Black Hole
06 - Citizen Erased
07 - Ruled by Secrecy
08 - Feeling Good
09 - Sunburn
10 - Hysteria
11 - Fury
12 - Starlight
13 - The Groove (instrumental)
14 - Time Is Running Out
15 - Stockholm Syndrome + outro (Dead Star and maybe Hyper Music riffs)
-----------------
16 - Plug In Baby
17 - Knights of Cydonia

I would have loved to have seen Invincible, that's my only tiny little change i would have made to the setlist - other than that, it was pretty much perfect as far as I'm concerned.

Anyway, for anyone who wants to have a look, here are my photos (well some of the 200+ I took):

And here are a couple of (dodgy) videos:

Glad you had a great time! Nice setlist-shame you didn't get to hear "Invincible", that song's quite good live. I got a whole new appreciation for it after hearing them perform it. Maybe next time. Still some great songs there nonetheless.

And hopefully next time you'll be able to be right up in the thick of things as well. But for being farther away from the stage as you were, you still managed to get some AWESOME pictures (I'm jealous, you managed to get some nice closeup shots of the guys. We didn't get that lucky). I love that set design-love the colors, love the images in the background, just gorgeous. And the crowd looks quite energetic, too. Very cool. Will check out those video clips as well. Again, glad you had fun-judging from those pictures, it's no wonder you can't get the whole thing out of your head .

(All this concert talk is reminding me that it's been just over two months since I saw these guys ...).

Thanks Angela.
Yeah, I was pretty happy with how the photos turned out - very glad I upgraded my digital camera - my old one would never have got great pics like that.

Question - does anyone know if/when the Wembley DVD is being released in Australia?

Muse live says January 2008. Although no mention of where its going to be released....but its safe to assume that we'd get it in Jan '08 me thinks
