Yeah pretty sure it was. I think that's what Serpent is talking about as well.

It kinda reminds me of when certain people wanna take credit for getting a song played because "look, I tweeted at Matt that I wanted to hear Fury".

Still listening to recordings of this gig :D

However, this is bugging me - what is Matt actually saying at 1.23? I'm sure he's not screwing up saying 'Easily', I think he's changing the lyrics slightly, as he often does (loved the 'it means we should be glorious' :happy:)...

Thoughts?

That's a great multicam of Easily by Muse France, btw!

In fact we should give the guys more credit for fulfilling their promises, this time.
I'd even say it's moving how they stuck to what the fans voted, and thus demonstrating they do care.

We should give them more credit for not lying this time?

SerpentSatellite 07-09-2017 08:15 PM

The petition actually cited Matt's Tweet and was to "hold him accountable" or show support for it.

It probably doesn't hurt that they share a manager with Metallica, who's done this sort of thing before.

I think we should give them credit for playing all the top 10 (+ Futurism that made 12th).

"The show is “By Request” - ticket holders can choose their top ten tracks and all votes submitted will be collated and used to curate the set on the night."
With this wording, they could even have played only Showbiz and then the rest of their usual setlist (like in Reading). It's not like there was a real engagement to play all the top 10.

Actually I wasn't sure when I got into the venue if they were about to play the top 3, top 5, top 10 or if the whole set would be based on which songs came first. Or even they could have just picked up songs from the top 10 or 20 or I don't know, and not picked up others because too difficult/too little time to rehearse/write any excuse here. It would have been a silly move but well, I guess we are kind of used to it down there :D

I was just hoping that Dig Down/Starlight/Uprising/Madness would not show up... then Assassin kicked in and I just couldn't stop laughing hysterically for a minute as I suddenly knew they were about to deliver an epic show :LOL:

Simon I've just noticed your Teagan (or Sarah?) Is still wearing a Santa Hat. :chuckle:

Ahem. Anyway. Wagers on anything from this gig sticking around for the few closing dates of the tour?

Jobby 15-09-2017 02:15 AM

It's always christmas when Tegan Quin's involved.

You managed to get both names from actually :chuckle: but yeah it's Tegan. And yes she's always santa.

I'd have thought Take a Bow was the highest likelihood of everything that came back for this plus the following 3 gigs when it came to the remaining North American shows. Although I'm willing to guess Easily will get an appearance in Japan or Australia, or both.

Tbf I thought San Francisco was last night.

altbecky 16-09-2017 01:18 AM

Oh my apologies to Tegan and Sara.

Apparently B&H and Take a Bow were soundchecked....

Cheers - it sounds so glaringly obvious now someone's told me :p

Anyone know if this particular gig's Easily backing track (electronic/harmonising vocals stuff) is floating about online? I love it. I also love the twinkly backing track in SFA - it's such a shame that Morgan just stops playing it abruptly when the songs ends, would've been nice to tail off, like how Matt did his wee guitar lick at the end of Glorious.

This gig just keeps on giving! I wonder how long Muse France will take to upload a multicam of the full performance...

smoledman 22-09-2017 05:24 PM

Funny how Matt doesn't understand why fans love SFA. This is one of THE songs that made me a Muse fan back in 2008.

forevermusic 19-08-2018 09:18 AM

To think its been a year already.

… still not jealous I missed out on tickets. Not at all. No siree.
