This past week I was lucky enough to get to see Muse in concert... again. It was my third time seeing them, and at first, I was thinking, ah, do I really need to go this time? But my daughter has turned into quite the fan and begged for us to get tickets. So I thought, whatever, create the memories!
Well, after waiting nearly an hour to be let in the arena, and then another hour before the opening band started, and then yet another hour of hearing them play and waiting for the stage to change, I was beginning to wonder was I glad to be there?
As soon as Muse hit that first note, let me tell you, I was glad to be there! Oh my word, these guys are good! The energy is over the top awesome, their songs are incredible, their talent is amazing! All of it. So so good.
However, I do have to say, you must like loud to enjoy this show. And lost of visual stimulation. It's crazy loud! Like pretty much the loudest thing you'll ever hear. I wish could describe the loudness. There's no way. So if loud scares you, be warned of the Muse concert!
I took our new camera and had fun trying to take pictures and videos. We were sitting way to the side, so we got some pretty interesting perspectives. However, Muse's shows are so full of lasers and lights that in sitting so far to the side we lost some of the effect of that. But in choosing between the laser light show and getting a good glimpse of the guys themselves, I think I choose the guys. How about you?
So anyway, here's some of my favorite pictures we ended up with.
|Matt singing Supremacy|
|The first pumping, head banging crowd|
|Chris, the most awesome bass player EVER!|
I'm in awe of him.
|This was our non zoomed in view.|
|Matt and Chris, look at those expressions!|
|When Matt plays the piano, it blows me away!|
Butterflies and Hurricanes
|Love this shot!|
Singing Follow Me
|Matt and Chris again!|
|Chris singing his own song, Liquid State.|
With the crowd in the background
Love that shot!
|And Dom with the sweat just rolling off him!|
This was the opening number and then it went straight into Supermassive and the crowd went wild!
This one gives me chills and then when it goes into Chris on the bass for Hysteria... there are no words.
One of my favorite new songs is Follow Me, and then also you can get a glimpse here of Chris singing one of his new songs... this album is the first time he's had a couple of his own songs. So cool.
Well, it gives you some idea any way, but definitely not how loud it was! :)
