There has been a bit of discussion in various threads about the lengths that many of us will go to, to see the best live band on the planet perform. So, why not a club for the truly obsessive world-traveling Musers? We will need input on criteria for eligibility; certainly anyone who travels to another country or state, or other long-distance travel, is in like Flynn! HelenT and I, both veterans of multiple trans-Atlantic journeys to see the band perform, have been nominated as presidents; co-presidents, one from UK and one from US sounds even better, we accept! (Can I speak for you, Helen?)

I would nominate Liron for an official officer, as she has been from Israel to France, then to UK (separate trip), and also to the US, with coast-to-coast band-following and multiple gigs.

Any other likely candidates for WTFM membership or officers?

A few who pop into my head:

Ah ha! The WTFM!!! I see my name there... :p

So what about some "bennies" of membership, hmmm? We need a true Frequent Flyer club, and/or a Muse VISA card that also racks up air miles! Is that too far-fetched? :LOL:

YAY!

I second Liron's nomination.

:( on kiernana's cancellation or not being able to go to Muse Madison Square Garden's show now after her just recent moved to Chicago. I vote to give her some slack on this one. I hope she still makes it.

I wouldn't let a little matter of Chicago to NYC stop me from seeing Muse! Unfortunately I can't afford the air fare from London, otherwise I'd be there!

Shouldn't it be the 'Has too much money and not enough sense' club?

...Because you'd never travel to see Muse, would you? :D Lol!

Liron
21-07-2007, 05:21 PM
LOL o dear :$ Well, thanks for the nomination. Great lil club we have here ;)

I do think Helen T deserves it more. All in all, she travelled much more (although it's unfair because they perform in her country, loads :( lol bring them here I probably will stop travelling then)


But anyway Zoja, I disagree about the money bit. I don't have much money. I work a lot and save up. But about the 'not enough sense'... Mad and proud of it :D

Liron
21-07-2007, 05:25 PM
I have to say as I just finished writing my last msg, TIRO just came up on M2 in their '50 awesome videos' show. YAY :) And now Bjork! Awesome.


I work too and can barely afford my food shopping. So I think the money part does matter. A lot of Muse fans are still at school. I doubt they could save up to fly half way around the world....

Well, that's the difference. I still live at home, I don't study, just work. And I don't pay for food! So most of the money I get I save up for my random crap... and travelling is the one thing I enjoyed most. Well, that and gigs. And we only get bands here once in a few months if any.. and they're usually BAD. :LOL:

Lo
21-07-2007, 05:33 PM
I'm studying and have a part time job I just saw muse in Verona :happy: and thought why not as I was holidaying on Lake Garda anyway :D

Helen T
21-07-2007, 05:44 PM
Well, I would. I just can't afford to..... look at Monaco... I was £12 short. I paid for my flight. My gig ticket and my hotel room (I didn't get the money back for any of that) but all I was short of was the train fare to Luton airport.

I know plenty of people who WILL travel for Muse - but being able to afford to do it is another thing. Maybe it should be renamed to - 'Has enough money to travel for Muse' ??

;)

Its such a shame you never made it to Monaco :(

I absolutely agree with you too. I travel because, well I love travelling and I love live music and Muse are the best live band out there at the moment. I do realise how lucky I am. If I wasnt still living at home I'd never be able to to what I've done this year. Which is why I'm making the most of it!

Ooo yes, I'll join! :D

I would go to the Moon if the boys decided to play there :rolleyes:

I bet Matt's actually thought of that too....the most extreme gig ever! :LOL:

I understand those who can't afford to travel though. Like Helen, I live with my parents, so at the moment I am lucky enough to be able to afford to do it. I am making the most of it now before things change.

And Yes, I'll be going to MuseFest! :D

I've travelled from New Zealand to see Muse play Wembley and then Parc Des Princes, but then again I was coming to live in the UK anyway. :LOL: Well timed.

Cost enough for me to fly to the other end of New Zealand to see the first time in 2004 (always does when you cross between islands) and I was a very poor student, yay for guilt money from my parents when they lived in America.

She made it to Wembley, and drove 14 hours thru thunderstorms from St Louis to Austin and back, so Kiernan is definitely in. And yes, I too hope she can find a way to come to the MSG show...

Certainly when this topic came up, all in jest, no one was trying to be elitist. "Travel" doesn't necessarily mean halfway around the world; it can mean Edinburgh to London, or Chicago to NYC. Most of the traveling Musers have shared hotel rooms, even beds, camped on floors, and many of us have enjoyed the hospitality of new Muser friends we have met on this forum. MuseCamp, anyone? Some have carpooled over long distances (San Diego to Austin, LA to SF, etc) with other Musers. Sylvie is a bona fide adult but was willing to bunk in with 30 others in a hostel room to be able to bring her daughter from France to Wembley. As for me, I am blessed with access to a zillion airline miles, so nearly all my flights have been free. To be able to get time off, I have traded many a shift at work and done extra shifts to sweeten the deals; just this last 11 days I worked 4 24-hr shifts, in addition to 4 regular days at work. Maybe we should call it "Will work overtime for Muse"??

After spending our vacation in UK after the Wembley shows, I realized how much more expensive everything is in Britain, so I can see how many there would have trouble finding extra cash. I only wish I had been able to give you the 12 pounds for the train; it made me so sad to read your tale.

And as for "not enough sense":---sense is SO overrated!


LOL o dear :$ Well, thanks for the nomination. Great lil club we have here ;)

I do think Helen T deserves it more. All in all, she travelled much more (although it's unfair because they perform in her country, loads :( lol bring them here I probably will stop travelling then)

Of course you are in, Liron!
Someone in another thread nominated HelenT and me for president, so co-pres seemed like a good way to do it. But yes, there should be a special category for someone who has gone to ALL the shows on a given tour. Many of us have gone to several, but ALL??? That's dedication above and beyond!


I've seen them in Chicago...
I was already out there working for the summer, but it still counts surely? :)

Well, the trip wasn't specifically for Muse, but seeing them on 2 continents should certainly qualify!



Yeah same here... it all seemed to fit :LOL:
and er thanks for the nom :LOL: i can be an aussie rep/officer or something :LOL::LOL:

Sure, why not? As record holder (or soon to be anyway) of single longest trip to see Muse, you deserve some special mention!

Hi there!
It's Liron using Ortal's computer (and being too lazy to change to my own username :LOL:)

Well, I definitely think you and Helen T deserve the president title more than I do :LOL:
But I think I should be in a special category called 'those who travel to see Muse because they don't have a choice' lol :p Cos at the end of the day, I HAVE to travel to see them.. Obviously I don't have to do it that many times, that's by choice! :happy:

Oh, oh.. I know. I don't like to mention figures (hence my signature) but I've seen Muse over 40 times so you can imagine I have travelled a little bit (not more than 2 hours on a plane) and have NO SENSE WHATSOEVER ;) So you know.. I'm not offended or taking this seriously... I guess I'm just bitter that since I got a mortgage I haven't been able to go and 'travel' to see Muse anymore ;)

40, wow! Guess I'm just a beginner...I would go to even more gigs, but then I do have to go to work, and the kids do have to go to school sometime! Maybe when my youngest goes off to college in a year, I will "do a HelenT" and follow the tour, visiting Muser friends all along the way.

I had so much fun on that UK tour!!

I actually have a history of doing this kind of thing. I saw one band 72 times, most of that in a 2 year period. The most gigs I've been to on one tour was 21 out of 26 dates. I still dont know how I did it as I was a student at the time. Not having to pay to get into the gigs certainly helped and most of the time, I didnt bother with accomadation. I spent most of my life on overnight buses or waiting at stations!

I'll be mad if I were you. Missing Muse because of £12. Can't you just used the credit card or be brave and borrow from a friend?

I work too and can barely afford my food shopping. So I think the money part does matter. A lot of Muse fans are still at school. I doubt they could save up to fly half way around the world....

My son is in college and only working but he spends more on entertainment than me.

He likes Muse but he won't give up his socializing money in order to go abroad for Muse gigs like I do. So it's all a matter of which you consider more important.

There are football fans pay hundreds of pounds on tickets and go to away matches all over the country or abroad, what's so different about us travel to Muse gigs?

I had so much fun on that UK tour!!

I actually have a history of doing this kind of thing. I saw one band 72 times, most of that in a 2 year period. The most gigs I've been to on one tour was 21 out of 26 dates.

I spent most of my life on overnight buses or waiting at stations!

The price of a ticket is not a problem, it's the accommodation and the cost of traveling that cost the most.

I would go to more Muse gigs if I wasn't such a wimp - afraid to go to new places by myself.

I'm learning to be a bit braver so I can travel for Muse.:LOL:

For the unenlightened it looks like a lot of money for a gig and I'm not rich, I could use the money on plenty other necessities, but money can't buy you happiness so I choose happiness.:happy:

Musefest! Count me in.

I don't know if I can qualify but I sure am trying..
I've travelled from Lithuania to London. Also to Poland and Latvia, which is not that far, but if we consider the fact that I skipped the last festival day (LCD Soundsystem, Bloc Party, Bjork) in Poland, left my friends and went straight to Latvia through Lithuania, unsure if I would manage to make it in time to the bus (too many people said I was insane :D), maybe I can get some extra points.

And Musefest, yess.

I'm definitely a beginner with 6 gigs (plus 2 in Aug).

Hopefully in a year my son will go to university and I'll be free!

What a good idea Mary - do a Helen T, go to gigs travel the world and visiting Musers except sometimes work get in the way.:LOL:

Ahem *cough* Have credit card, will travel for Muse :D

So I am going to the States to mostly see Muse. However I wouldn't have gone if I hadn't got somewhere to stay in LA and planned some sightseeing as well. Not being able to drive means I had to pick a gig I could get to using taxis and my own feet. Although I would have loved to have gone to Red Rocks as well as Phoenix the venue is miles out of Denver and it would have been impossible.

I'm definitely not rich. In fact, everyone is completely pissed off with me for sodding off on a jaunt to the States, they all think I should be settling down and buying a house and boring stuff like that. The trip + spending money means I will be paying it back right up to Xmas. But its worth every penny to me, its something to look forward to in my mundane existence.:rolleyes: If they go to Australia in the summer and not NZ I will fly out for that as well.

don't know if i qualify but i have seen them in Belgium and Cali and Va and about to do the whole US tour except for Arizona and Texas....don't have much money left for those two :LOL: oh welllll im lucky enough to go everywhere else, havn't been to much gigs yet tho cause of money issues but im trying im trying this year i just went all out with my saving for muse :( now im broke but its well worth it i think :D hope to join the club and meet some of you guys real soon :p

I think I qualify. Earls Court, Wembley Arena,Wembley Stadium all with the family. But Paris I did on my own, to prove that i could. It was a major step for me in more ways then you could imagine. And it's now given me the confidence to start planning my trip to the U.S. I will be seeing Muse at Seattle, Portland and Red Rocks. How I will be travelling and getting to each venue, well I don't know, but that's part of the challenge. Sometimes in life you just have to go with what you feel is right for you. I'm looking forward to what could be the holiday of a lifetime, meeting up again with friends from the board, seeing things I've never seen before(I can't comprehend what I will feel like looking across a different ocean half a world away).
Yes, I will certainly travel for Muse, because it's more than just that.

Who has money to travel for Muse? It's worse than that, I travel for Muse without money! :D

Yeah... 'Has no money and even less sense-club', I'd say. :LOL:

Ahem *cough* Have credit card, will travel for Muse :D


I got a credit card just because of Wembley. :rolleyes:

So yes, going to the Netherlands and to UK just for Muse, qualifies me for the cub, too, me thinks. :D

22-07-2007, 02:19 PM
Does going over the English Channel qualify??? My whole family (four of us) travelled to Barcelona last year, and Paris this year to see Muse. we combined it with a little holiday too!
Travelling gets a bit hard sometimes, as there are four of us to pay for!!! Not just the tickets, but 4 plane flights, and always 2 hotel rooms!!
If was able to just go on my own, that's a different matter!!! On the one hand it's great the whole family love Muse, but it does get restrictive!!!
I am also quite lucky living near London, so getting to Wembley or Earls Court is never a problem.

I went to Hong Kong from London in March, does that count? Do I get a shiny badge or something if i'm in the club? I also went to Paris last december, then again in June followed by a tour of Belgium ending up at Werchter. It's not really that commited, I just arranged my holidays this year around Muse gigs. I'd go to the US as well, but I've burned all my annual leave up, I spose i could just resign...

Of course---you went to another country, twice! And like so many of us, you wrapped your vacation around the Muse gigs!

Sounds like Travel for Muse to me! It still counts if you turn it into your vacation; makes the travel costs easier to rationalize. Your friends seem to disagree, but I think even those who came from Scotland to Wembley should be in, that's quite a distance.
Maybe you could just call in sick? Very very sick, for a week or so??

see post above yours! I will admit I've been lucky with the timing of Muse deciding to tour about the place when I don't have kids or university or a career - but I still saved up all my pennies and didn't do anything exciting and lived with my parents for nearly half a year so i could afford do travel to england.

22-07-2007, 10:09 PM
Yes, I do have a job, otherwise there's no way I could afford it! I have used all of my leave until April next year. Actually I think I have 3 days which I am keeping for emergancies only. I dont go away on 'proper' holidays so all my leave was booked to do something gig related, mostly to see Muse.

Its going to be a long winter...!!

Same! I've used all my holidays this year going to see Muse or going to festivals. If definitely worth it though!

i think i qualify. Travelled around uk, ireland, spain, germany, and i'm currently it usa waiting for next weeks concert.

Been lucky with the tours as i always seem to be on leave or have holiday booked in the same place. It would be rude not to see them he i'm already in the city/country :D

:LOL: Between that, and all the confusion about what qualifies one into the club, maybe the acronym WTFM should stand for "What The F**k, Man?!", instead of "Will Travel For Muse"! :LOL:

But, yeah, I have a job. I work for myself, so I can take off whenever I want, and can afford to do so. I have no dependents or partner, or anyone or anything holding me back, so I'm taking advantage of this unique time in my life to do what makes me happy which, at the moment, is going to a lot of Muse gigs! :happy:

I used to travel around a lot to see the Grateful Dead, so this is not entirely unusual for me, though I never flew anywhere to see the Dead. It was more like going on insanely long road trips around the U.S. :rolleyes: :D

Yeah, it's a perfect excuse to go and see other countrys, or vice versa. :happy:
And yes, I'm pretty sure I won't have traveled for teh last time to see them. :happy:

Certainly when this topic came up, all in jest, no one was trying to be elitist. "Travel" doesn't necessarily mean halfway around the world; it can mean Edinburgh to London,
Well, in that case, my trip from Chelmsford-Nottingham to see Muse the day after I'd seen them at Wembley Arena and my trip from Sheffield-London to see them 4 days after I saw them in Sheffield counts too (skipped lectures for that one, and sixth form lessons for the first one). Slept on floors/sofas both times.

I can't travel for Muse, I don't have a passport. My family never went abroad, we could never afford it. Maybe in the new uni term, I will finally be able to afford one! Then I can join y'all on your crazy adventures! :D
Then you can come to a MuseCamp!

I would like to add myself to the list. :happy:

Jen, that should count;Edinburgh to London is 400 miles, so 35o is close enough! Red Rocks should be awesome, and the last show on a tour is always a kick-ass performance; sadly I'm on call with no hope of a trade...

Not meaning to sound rude or anything but do you people not have jobs? How can you afford to be flying around the world all the time?

I work too.

There are advantages being an Oldie - I've had a good education, well paid jobs and the good sense to save for the future.

Now I'm teaching part-time, I have a lot of freedom regarding time.

I don't spend much on clothes, drinking, or going out, so to me going to Muse gigs are money well spent.

School/college students can easily get part-time jobs and save up for Muse gigs if they want to.

We might scrape into the club, though some of the adventures described here eclipse ours.

Our awesome holiday to San Francisco in April was purely based around one Muse gig. It was great to meet a few of you jetsetting Musers there, too :) Also travelled to Scotland last year on the basis of a Muse gig.

So in common with most others here (and in response to the "where do you get the money?!" posts), our last 2 vacations were based around Muse. Also, we did have money saved for work on our fixer-upper of a house - until I blew it on the SF trip :LOL:

It's a bit complicated to work out, but here goes the costs for Copenhagen which is the only one I'm doing.

3 nights b&b for 2 people= 220
return flight to stansted= 40
stansted- copenhagen & back = 80
ticket = 30

all this is a bit approximate because it's converted back into pounds form euros or danish krone. There's a link on the Copenhagen thread where most people seem to be staying that's reasonably priced; you'd get a room cheaper than I did, I was just willing to pay a bit more to get an ensuite.

Hope that helps xx

i went to Bercy and then to Parc des princes- (i live in lebanon)- so of course had to take time off work, get all of my $$$ and have a week-end in Paris every time. Since i was going anyway to blow all of my cash :p i booked one of the nicest hotels, with a view on the Eiffel Tower straight out of my window!!!
the only thing that went wrong is that i never got a chance to meet them :mad: even though we waited after the shows, i guess i should have hung out with you guys!

I'm not very active on the boards... but here are my Muse travel experiences.

I live in MN. Drove to Chicago to see Muse at Lollapalooza ~5 hours.
Then I bought two front row tickets off Ebay for 400 bucks to see Muse again in Boston. Lots of money down the drain and about a 24 hour car drive.

Not a huge travel like some people- but being in the US, traveling to a different state is like traveling to a different country in Europe! :D

There has been a bit of discussion in various threads about the lengths that many of us will go to, to see the best live band on the planet perform. So, why not a club for the truly obsessive world-traveling Musers? We will need input on criteria for eligibility; certainly anyone who travels to another country or state, or other long-distance travel, is in like Flynn! HelenT and I, both veterans of multiple trans-Atlantic journeys to see the band perform, have been nominated as presidents; co-presidents, one from UK and one from US sounds even better, we accept! (Can I speak for you, Helen?)

I would nominate Liron for an official officer, as she has been from Israel to France, then to UK (separate trip), and also to the US, with coast-to-coast band-following and multiple gigs.

Any other likely candidates for WTFM membership or officers?

Can beat that by a couple of thousand more miles. V Fest Staffs and Marlay Park from Dunedin, New Zealand. That's pretty much right at the bottom of the inhabited world. If you started swimming from the beach by my parents' house, the next land mass you'd come to is Antarctica. 'Twas about a 40,000km round trip, I think. Worth it? Yes. Would I travel for Muse again?

I'm about 30 minutes outside of Vancouver. Doesn't surprise me that they've only really gone to eastern Canada... the west seems to be overlooked by many things. :rolleyes:

I'm definitely prepared to venture to Seattle though. Hopefully they do more than one gig there. And others close by (/prays).

Wow, I like your mum already! Does she like Muse too? Then she can be an official MuseMom! We will be having meetups at all the US gigs I'm sure, I usually go to NYC as well as Seattle, sometimes LA.... This time I will be looking for those smaller venues for sure.




Yeah, she likes Muse too, she has to, I'm the one in control of all the CDs :D But, yeah, she's a fan XD

Wow, 40 people? That must have been something.
I'm about 30 minutes outside of Vancouver. Doesn't surprise me that they've only really gone to eastern Canada... the west seems to be overlooked by many things. :rolleyes:

Yeah, we had people from UK of course, Norway, Holland, Italy, Israel---and then Wembley!
Still can't believe they haven't scheduled gigs in Vancouver...What venue would be best? GM Place is so huge, maybe something a bit more intimate? QE? (if seats are removable)
Last 2 times they played both Portland and Seattle, so lots of us went to both!

I was thinking something smaller than GM Place as well. I thought of QE at first, but I've never been inside so I'm not sure what the seating/setup is like. The only other place I can think of is UBC Thunderbird Stadium... it's outdoors so they could perform during the summer! It would feel like a festival or something. I think The Killers are performing there in a few months.

There's also the Commodore Ballroom, but I haven't been there either. :$ Then there's the Orphuem Theatre... that kind of has a Royal Albert Hall-ish look on the inside (I've gone on a mad google search for Van concert venues, I'll stop here for now).

Actually, Muse do quite well around here. They may not be filling arenas, but they were at Edgefest in 2007.
You'd be surprised how many weird indie kids there are now. :LOL:

I think rock music has started to fair much better here these days, but the people still love the generic rock music.

Yep, The Edge is still around, but it's getting more generic as well, It does play Muse though.

The Eagle went off the air but has now resurfaced, playing a lot of 80s hair metal.

Remember Granada Theatre? That's becoming a fantastic small venue for rock/alternative music.

There is some great local rock music, but you have to search a little deeper to find it. Btw, I think you mentioned The Toadies on another thread. Well, they're actually touring again.

Not much fuss about Good Charlotte. The kids have elevated to higher standards...like Fall Out Boy and The Academy Is... :D

I'm in and looking to expand on my Muse-inspired travels when they do their US headlining tour next year. So far I've only gone from Philadelphia to Maryland and to NYC - and next to Vegas for the Holiday Havoc show... but I'm hoping to coordinate visits to see friends in Seattle and San Fran when they play those cities on the US tour. Can never get enough live Muse and they just don't come to Philadelphia often enough, so what else can I do, right? As long as The Enabler (my husband) goes along with this obsession, I say: Need Muse, will travel! ;)

I don't know if I really qualify for exclusive WTFM club rights since this is my first time traveling to see them, and traveling is generally a very limited opportunity for me due to lack of funds. But, if the club will have me, I'm here for the party! :musesign:

I haven't done it before 'cos a) couldn't afford it b) no one else would go with me c) the parentals would have a fit... yes, sad as that is at my age, they still factor into it :rolleyes:.

BUT, I've basically decided to say SOD IT to all of the above and just go see them abroad, like I've always wanted to! I def still can't afford it; I've just about managed to convince peeps to go with me (although it's still 'maybe' for Paris); and my 'rents needn't know about it for the time being :LOL:... well thought out y/y?! :facepalm: OH WELLS, it's Muse, I barely spare a thought to my actions when it comes to those lads :$.

Does moving back to Chicago from LA count? I moved back a month early because of Muse... :awesome:

If not, Chicago to London = 3963 miles, and I will do it again in September, so 7,926 miles. Plus Chicago to NY twice = 1438, giving me a grand total of 9,364 miles total by years end.
