Muse to play ‘in the round’ on tour


Muse have announced the first leg of their 2016 world tour in support of latest album Drones, featuring UK and Europe dates from April to June.

The band have also confirmed they’ll perform from a stage set at the centre of each arena, offering an “in the round” experience for the first time ever.

Drones, Muse’s seventh album, was released in June. Frontman Matt Bellamy admitted he’d had reservations about working with producer Mutt Lange, but soon changed his mind, saying: “He was totally into the concept – he’s the kind of person to get into the mind of the artist and whatever the artist wants.”

Tickets go on sale at 9am on September 16. Further dates are to be announced across Europe and North America in due course.
