"Muse to play 'by request' tour? Matt bellamy seems keen, fans launch petition"
 
http://www.gigwise.com/news/107579/m...amy-&-petition

The time has come for you to have your says, Muse fans - as frontman Matt Bellamy suggests that the next tour setlist could be decided by you 'by demand' and a petition has been launched.

This comes after Muse played an epic opening headline set on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury last month - before some days later, headlining Montreux Jazz Festival with a setlist that included deep cuts, fan favourites, rarities and now seldom played tracks such as 'Agitated', 'Hyper Music', 'Fury', 'The Groove', 'Butterflies & Hurricanes', 'Futurism' and 'Micro Cuts'.

However, one fan Tweeted Bellamy to say that they'd been disappointed with recent setlists in comparison, and how they didn't play on enough of the band's back catalogue.

Now, just as they did on the blisteringly intimate Psycho Tour last year, Bellamy has responded to fans to suggest that the band are open to playing club shows where the setlist is decided 'by request':

Now in true fanatical Muser style, the very same fans behind the petition for the band to play a 20th anniversary tour, have launched a new one calling for them to play a 'by request club tour'.

"On July 2nd 2016, Muse performed at Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland that got a lot of chatter from the fans who were not in attendance," reads the petition. "Why? Because they played a lot of older, rarer songs that fans have been hoping to hear throughout the Drones World Tour.

"Matt Bellamy responded to several Tweets following the gig and has talked about the possibility of a "rarities tour" or "by request type thing" as he put it.

"This has received a lot of positive feedback from the fan community and is something everyone would love to be a part of.

"Suggestions have been made to allow those only in attendance have the ability to select from a list of songs they would like to be played, or have access to a poll created by the band before the gig.

"Something like this wouldn't be a easy task for the band to administer but it is certainly achievable (and being a web developer I am happy to put my hand up to help with this!)

"In 2015 Muse did a similar tour in the UK where they performed rarities and this had a great response from the fans. The locations were intimate and gave a great boost for club venues across the UK."

They added: "Muse are to stop touring end of August 2016 for a well deserved rest. A "By Request" tour would be great to see in 2017 and I would suggest expanding it from the UK to include Europe as well. There have been talks of Muse performing at some US festivals next year so that would open up the opportunity to do some club shows in the US as well. It has also been well noticed that Australia has been missed during the Drones World Tour, so the possibility of having some shows down under would go a long way too!"

Ah Gigwise. They sure love picking up stories from here, don't they?

That tagline is wildly exaggerated.

I actually feel kind of bad for Matt that his Twitter nonsense made it to mass media.
At least the fanbase knows he says shit like this all the time.

Didn't someone here say Glenn said Matt gets himself in trouble all the time with his empty promises? :chuckle:

Maybe Matt should have used this smiley ;)

:p

Matt can't get his tone across in person, I refuse to believe a guy who Tweets twice a year could do so with emoticons. :chuckle:

And NME picked it up: http://www.nme.com/news/muse/94805

SerpentSatellite 05-07-2016 06:41 PM

Is that literally the same article with a different headline?

NME is ripping off Gigwise now. :chuckle:

Some of the article text is different. They've always ripped each other off and picked up info from here. :p

SerpentSatellite 05-07-2016 06:47 PM

As a former journalist intern, I am still offended. :phu:
:chuckle:

The structure of the text is way too similar.

:LOL:

Oh lord. Bless these sites for picking up on our fandom silliness

It's one of the reasons I hate it happening, though.
It really escalates a non-issue into the mainstream and reflects poorly on the whole band.

I mean, of course it was Matt's doing.
He really should type out his Tweets and then reevaluate them 10 minutes later before hitting Send, or something...
Tweet them to Dom and have him filter them, maybe. :chuckle:

This is so cringey.

My posts, Gigwise, or the situation? :chuckle:

I'm ok with toilet humor, but I'm less funny trying to be humorous on the toilet.

Tjet 05-07-2016 08:10 PM

The situation. The fact that it's making news. Ridiculous :LOL:

altbecky 05-07-2016 08:33 PM

I agree, it's cringey.

Really shouldn't have to do this, all they need is to throw in two rotations of heavier/older stuff and a rotating piano slot. Mainstream fans get their pop, old school fans get their rock= everyone leaves happy. Simples.
