You know that feeling when you look forward to something for months, and then it happens and it’s amazing, but then the next day comes and you realize it’s all over? I’m in that letdown phase now after having seen Muse last night at Madison Square Garden.
Muse has been my favorite band for over 10 years now, so getting to see them perform live is always a treat, especially since they’re a great live act.
The concert was amazing. I’d seen them on their last tour, which was a lot of fun, but I knew from seeing photos and videos of their previous stops that this was going to be an incredible night. They went so overboard (in the best possible way) with their stage production this time.
I also really loved their setlist. It was a nice mix of old songs and new ones, and the crowd was going wild and singing along the whole time.
They had everything from dancers shooting CO2 guns to astronauts scaling the wall to crazy lighting and lasers throughout to a giant robot skeleton named Murph that popped out of the stage at the end. Honestly, their shows are so visual that pictures and videos are a much better representation of how much fun I had (though they in no way do the show justice). So instead of trying to explain why it was so great, I’m just going to share some of the photos and videos I took. I wish I was able to get better quality pictures, but my phone is kind of terrible, and I didn’t want to waste time changing camera settings when I could be enjoying the show.
And since my videos of Murph are kind of garbage, here’s a taste for what he looks like from another angle and from a better camera 😉
