Why do you think they didn't do any television promo at all for Drones in the US?

They did still get a #1 album for the first time in the USA without going on any of them tbf. But still a bit weird that the US has about 504 late night shows and they were booked for none of them, and as noted such a thing may well have helped shift tickets for the tour.

Muse>Ed Sheeran (in one market at least)

First week sales comparison in France:

Drones 78k - Debut #1
÷ 41k - Debut #2

Muse Trivia: Which B-side is probably the only instance of a Muse track where the majority of the song's performances (6) were in Canada? The other performances took place in the USA (3) and the UK (1).

'Rose-tinted view
And satellites that
Compromise the truth

But I wanted more
With the cuts and the bruises
Touch my face
A hopeless embrace

It drives me away
But it turns me on
Like a stranger's love

It rockets through the universe
It fuels the lies and feeds the curse
Believes we could be glorious...'

Live Performance of this rarity aka DES and Church of the SubGenius in Ottawa in 2004:

The three longest charting Muse albums in the UK according to the Official Charts Company:

96 weeks - Black Holes and Revelations - 3x Platinum

85 weeks - Absolution - 3x Platinum

67 weeks - The Resistance - 2x Platinum

Excerpt from Out Of This World - The Story of Muse by Mark Beaumont

"It [Black Holes and Revelations] needed a sleeve of equally epic scope of course and so Storm Thorgerson was called on again, this time coming up with the concept of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse seated around the table on a barren red Martian landscape. Shot in Spain, half a mile from the Spanish Air Force's prime bombing test area, Storm represented the Horsemen by different coloured horses on the table in front of them, far too small for the Horsemen to ride, to signify that the sins of the riders had far outgrown their steeds. The pale horse represented death, the red one was war, the black horse was famine, and the white one was that of the Antichrist, and the Horsemen each wore a suit representing an ailment of humanity. For these, Storm envisioned a very modern Apocalypse, with the four Horsemen standing for greed, paranoia, religious intolerance, and narcissism; you'll note that greed has more horses than the others."

Real Madrid vs. Muse - Matches/Gigs attended by muse s'amuse

Real Madrid CF 11:10 Muse

Muse will draw level with RM when I attend Lollapalooza in Chicago in August 2017. Last month I saw Cristiano Ronaldo score a hat trick vs. Bayern Munich in the UEFA CL match at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in Madrid and Lionel Messi score a brace against RM in the La Liga El Clasico match at the same venue.


Hollywood Oscar-winning actress and soccer mom Julia Roberts was spotted at the RM-Barca match and took pics with some of the players after the game. She was also at Old Trafford to watch a Manchester United match last year.

Matt recently attended an LA Galaxy match at StubHub field and several years ago went to Stamford Bridge to cheer on Chelsea. Chris is a supporter of the Rotherham Millers and last year was at the Bernabeu to watch the Real Madrid vs. Manchester City UCL semi-final second leg match.
