Had a really great time last night!!
I never complain about the song choices. I like every song, so everything they play is fine with me But i did missed dead star ....

I only have one complain: I got there early, so hoped to get a nice spot, but some arrogant people just push themselves in to the front
And i really DISLIKE those stupid moshpits!!!! It isn’t a heavy metall concert...
I come there to enjoy the show, the music and the band, so yes i would like to stand near the barrier but i just hate it when others start pushing like they’re some kind of wild animals or something just to get to the front and don’t have the decency to stay at the place where they’ve started.

nevertheless, i had a great night.

Still haven t got any voice from screaming so much yesterday really enjoyed the gig though I know now for sure that I belong into GA - sitting just seemed so wrong! So many families around me sitting quietly, it took them at least half of the set to get moving
On the plus side, at least they didnt talk during the quite songs.

I loved the set, even the quiet songs although I hadnt thought I would.
My biggest criticism is the sound during B&H, the Piano section was quite bad because of it

What a brilliant gig!! Setlist could have been better but I didn't even notice it at the the time. Missed SS like crazy though
The boys were in top form and we had some pretty funny moments overall

Biffy were far from shit (but I don't think the Dutch are ready for them perhaps ?!) Believe me they were fantastic at the O2 in April and I can't wait to see them again at Reading but.. fair enough, when you put them up against Muse on a night like last might, Muse are far and away the more polished, professional band. Biffy still have that raw, gritty thing and long may it continue in my opinion.

Great gig, great atmosphere and a good set (although I could live without Guiding light, Resistance and Undisclosed but they seem to play them at EVERY gig I go to). It was good to meet so many lovely people in the front of the queue (entrance J... I was the fat old bird with frizzy hair and BIG platforms handing out sun cream). I really enjoyed the Dutch crowd... very nice people.

No Hysteria though..again.... and I love it...

Sad it is all over.

Great gig The visuals were also pretty cool with Panic Station as a highlight(Mark Rutte & Angela Merkel . I lol'd so hard at that

I really missed Dead Star tho, that song has SO much energy live!

Btw, is anyone else pretty bummed matt doesnt do the awesome blackout solo ala Wembley 2007 anymore?

He needs to play more guitar!

But honestly, I thought it was awful, especially the first part, and it literally hurt my ears. The second half was all right, I guess. It's just not my kind of music although I enjoy a few songs by them. When I went to get a drink (I had seats) I found a cool lounge where they were playing Glasto 2004 on a big screen so I amused myself with that for a few minutes

I think Biffy were suffering from the wonky arena acoustics a bit more because there seemed to be more low/bassy stuff. The arena seems especially good at echoing those. Then again, I remember people complaining about them 'being shit' when they supported Muse at ahoy '09 as well.

I personally think they were pretty awesome both times I've seen them, especially the heavier songs.

Had a real fun night, Bastille was shit with a terrible sound but I don't think the sound made that much difference. I enjoyed Biffy Clyro when I expected I would hate it since last time in 2009 they really sucked. It was quite nice actually and the guitar player on the right was brilliant and hilarious at the same time.

Of course I loved Muse. Bliss, Sunburn, Knights, funny Panic station and that beautiful guitar in Animals, just some highlights. As I expected Dead Star is going to be UK only and that's a sad thing but Butterflies blew me away and might be the best performed song last night. Unintended was beautiful if only we could hear Chris' guitar better.

I don't mind them playing a set of songs on the B-stage or some running around. But when Matt left for another run to the b-stage in Madness for the second part and guitar solo I got the feeling that it was too much. It's the best part of that song and I would have loved to see it with my own eyes. But he left for the 3rd song in a row and I could feel the excitement in the crowd actually fading around me.

Follow Me was boring and terrible. Worst perfomance of the night with of course Guiding Light as a close second. Blackout was better than expected, it's still a beautiful song.

It was a great night after all

First of all: WOW! It was the first Muse concert for me and it simply blew me away!
Still got a huge smile on my face!
Absolutely fantastic show!

Does anybody happen to know if they always do the camera-stuff and record everything?
I think I also saw 360°-cameras, but I'm not sure... I would love to have the recording!!
