Muse - Uprising

Muse is a British alternative rock band that formed in Teignmouth, Devon in 1994. Since its inception, the band has comprised vocalist, guitarist and pianist Matthew Bellamy; bassist and backing vocalist Christopher Wolstenholme; and drummer Dominic Howard. Muse are known for their energetic and extravagant live performances and their fusion of many music genres, including progressive rock, classical music and electronica. Muse have released five studio albums – Showbiz (1999); Origin of Symmetry (2001); Absolution (2003); Black Holes and Revelations (2006) and The Resistance (2009).

Saturday was a Muse day here in Stockholm Sweden, Muse was playing at a sold out Hovet and did a marvelous gig.
And it was a very interesting day, second show on the tour so not everything was smooth and well organized as many other well oiled tour are, they arrived with 15-16 trucks (can't remember the exact number) and with many well know truck drivers that i have bumped into over the years. Also some of the crew was well know, so the Muse team was nice. I did mostly work for Lizzy and Paul, so they kept me busy for the hole saturday, nice guys indeed. Also had a chance to shoot so pictures during the day as u can see below, the live shoots is done by Thetania.
The opening act The horrors was not as i thought they might be, looked them up on the net before and they sounded ok, but they couldn't deliver live as i hoped they would do, might been a bad day for them.
Muse surely could act, a marvelous show with amazing lightning, well sounded and a nice set list :) Muse is a band that like to mix diffrent style to make their own, alot of Queen music with electronica and harder rock riffs, kinda cool.

Todays tune is the album's first single, "Uprising", was released on 7 September 2009.
