* = was included for SBE then dropped
Bold = has already been played/voted in


Basically, what do you reckon should:

a) Come back that disappeared after SBE

b) Come in that hasn’t been included yet

My shouts would be:

a) Agitated, Apocalypse Please, Blackout, Defector, Do We Need This, Endlessly, Exo-Politics, Falling Away With You, Falling Down, Forced In, Darkshines, Megalomania, Nature_1, Ruled By Secrecy, Screenager, The Small Print, Soldier’s Poem, Take A Bow, Unnatural Selection, Yes Please

b) Ashamed, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Coma, Con-Science, Crying Shame, Escape, Execution Commentary, Fillip, The Gallery, Hate This & I’ll Love You, Hoodoo, Host, I Belong To You, In Your World, Minimum, MK Ultra, Redemption, Shine (Acoustic), Shrinking Universe, Sober

Hoodoo’s an absolute must, shocked that’s not been on so far. Also reckon Blackout would come back in it’s proper, non-abysmal form at a small venue. RBS was a criminal drop.

If they’re gonna repeat the live voting thing as well, I’d like to see an ‘instrumental song’ slot where the D&B jam would usually go.

Citizen_Eraser 25-02-2018 06:19 PM

Can we just spam the hell out of Shrinking Universe hastags until they play it?

Clunge 25-02-2018 06:23 PM

More of them. Bigger ones. Take the concept and do it at somewhere like Brixton Academy.

Also, endure the non-rarities are always varied - i.e. I didn’t expect Psycho last night but it was welcome over, say, Starlight or TIRO.

I also liked the cabaret element to last night’s show. Dom with the envelopes, Matt’s silly explanations, the little screw-ups. It just felt more live.

Jobby 25-02-2018 06:30 PM

I did like the envelopes :chuckle: v x-factor or some shit

Not sure about doing bigger shows tbh...obvs it’d be great for more fans to get to go to any given show but I love how intimate these places are so far. Somewhere like Brixton might be just a bit too big and detract from the vibe a bit imo. If you just increased the number of shows they do and the variation in places they take it, I think that’d help make it available to more people without sacrificing that ‘cramped in room of hardcores’ energy.

Agree w/ keeping any staples varied tho. Would like to give the length a shout as well - 16 at SBE and 18 at La Cigale as opposed to the 15 on the Psycho Tour, no more ‘smaller venue = smaller set logic’

Espectro Cuatro 25-02-2018 08:00 PM

As fun as the Facebook thing was, if I had paid for a “by request” ticket I wouldn’t want randoms on the internet deciding my set list.

I’m hoping the voting results will result in better set lists for all gigs. It’s really interesting how the top 10 didn’t include any staples, apart from PIB I guess. The results were mostly early singles that the band seems to think are deep cuts.

These by request shows should really be a question of “Which B-sides do you want to hear for the first time?” rather than “Which classic, well-known songs do you want a much higher chance of seeing live?”

Jobby 26-02-2018 07:21 PM

I don’t think it matters whether the results/options are singles, album tracks or b-sides tbh, as long as they’re good and something you don’t hear every day.

Am slightly worried about them starting to skip stuff that makes the top 10 though, sets a potentially dodgy precedent without sounding overly dramatic. Still haunted by those summer 2010 polls. If you aren’t gonna be willing to play something, just don’t make it available for voting. Dead Star’s not an awful miss ‘cos it does pop up occasionally anyway but anyone there that wasn’t at SBE must’ve been pretty bummed about S4A.

Also how the fuck did I miss HCM from my ‘songs that should be added’? it is an i m p e r a t i v e addition.

By Request suggestion, a tour which makes seeing Muse accessible to fans, like myself who cant afford to travel, across the UK including Wales.

For Paris, we had 5 votes, and, if I'm not mistaken, they only mentionned a top 5 as well. So they would actually have gone beyond what they "had" to.

Tjet 02-03-2018 08:03 PM

Did they mention a top5? I never saw that anywhere but then I didn’t pay much attention. I mostly saw people talk about Muse playing the top 5 because you could vote for 5 songs, which doesn’t necessarily say anything about the number of songs they were looking at from the results.

Jobby 02-03-2018 09:18 PM

Yeah, they didn’t mention a number for SBE or La Cigale, just that ‘votes would curate the set’. Considering Matt posted the top 10 for each on Twitter though, playing all 10 + Futurism at SBE, I took that to mean that’s what they sectioned off to go in the set.

Rustyy 02-03-2018 09:29 PM

I thought it said 5 in the email

czuczu 03-03-2018 08:15 AM

It did.

Tjet 03-03-2018 08:16 AM

What did the email say exactly?

This would be cool but in the end, doesn't make much sense from an economic point of view. Why organise a tour playing for small audiences when you can play for arenas or even stadiums?

"Thank you for buying a ticket to Muse's show at La Cigale on 24 February.

Billed as a ‘By Request’ show, each ticket holder can choose up to five of their favorite Muse tracks and all votes submitted will be collated and used to curate the set on the night.

If you have purchased one ticket, you have one unique code to use when voting, but please note that each code is unique and works only once.

If you have purchased two tickets, and therefore have two unique codes to use when voting, you can use both these codes yourself or you can pass one on to your guest for the evening – that choice is yours !"

Honestly, I took this to mean that only the top 5 would be played but technicically it didn't say that.

Tjet 03-03-2018 09:59 AM

Yeah I don't even think it implies that.
