Special points: Matt Bellamy’s singing, the atmosphere
Best bit: Starlight
If I could change one thing: Better support act
I have such great memories of this gig, which I went to with a group of friends. Unusually, Muse played the Black Holes and Revelations album in the order of the album’s track listing, with encores including Feeling Good (a song which they manage to put their own stamp on in a way that most cover versions doesn’t achieve).
Matt Bellamy’s voice and the whole band’s performance were amazing and the atmosphere from the crowd was electric. The only thing I would really change would be the support act, who weren’t really that memorable.
