I went to see Muse in concert last night and it was incredible!! I met my fellow TM friend Christina there and I took Alexander. The cover band began at 7:30, but I was at BTS night for my high school kids so we didn't get there until about 8:30. Our seats were directly left of the stage and they had these huge "building" screens up and we were really worried we weren't going to be able to see anything!

The lights dimmed and they had these white images of people going down the stairs of the building screen. It was very cool. Music began playing and everyone was getting very excited. Then one of the "people" at the top started tumbling down on all the people below him. With a huge blast, the screen dropped (Yay!) and the concert began! We could see!

They opened with Uprising and it was fantastic! They played most of my favorites, including Stockholm Syndrome which is one of my all time favorite Muse songs. They got 2 "Twilight" songs in - Supermassive Black Hole and Time is Running Out, plus a number of others that are on SM's book playlists. Matthew Bellamy's piano was the coolest thing I've ever seen. The piano keys glowed in the dark and the top had fiber optic lights that would blink. Alex told me we need to get one of those! They played United States of Eurasia & Ruled by Secrecy with the piano. At least I think it was only 2. I was wishing they had done more with him on the piano, though. The band played until about 10:30, then they just left the stage. (I think it was a potty break. LOL) Of course, everyone cheered and clapped for them to come back out, which they did. They played 3 more songs, ending with Knights of Cydonia. They played at least 15 songs, I bet. MB changed guitars after every song, it seemed like. They didn't talk to the audience much, but that's OK. It was a fantastic, incredible evening that I'll never forget. And a pretty awesome first concert for Alexander!
