So today they announce a Chicago date in January. This piecemeal tour announcement stuff has become totally tiresome. C'mon Muse, get your production company with the program and announce dates all at once so people can plan!

And with ticket prices significantly higher than on past tours, can we expect more than 16-18 songs? (And no, riffs and jams don't count) I won't hold my breath...

Rant over; resume business as usual.

I have to agree with you. The Bulls and Blackhawks schedules are well known as well as any other show committments. Just announce it all at once already.

And i only saw the news because FB showed it as a sponsored post. But as usual, i'll be buying a ticket.

Have fun! It would be great to see you at a Muse gig again, but Chicago in January is not my idea of fun. Plus it's pricey for flights, hotel, etc; and we are already going to Vegas, San Diego, and LA x 2! I'll spend the $ for a bit of sunshine!

ME! I'll probably get there around noon or a bit after that. Not my ideal situation to be out in the cold for 5+ hours Plus, I think other people will be the same way so there may not be people lined up early who knows.

Have you gone GA before? Last time I went, I was in the nosebleed section because I waited until the last possible moment to buy tickets and I vowed that I would have a GA next time so here I am. Any advice on GA/will call specifically for the United Center?

Oh and lastly, I'm sorry, I'm all rambles, it's just pure excitement

If I'm not mistaken, last year the band was regularly playing songs that fans suggested over twitter. Might be worth a shot to have a bunch of people request a song for Chicago. I vote Assassin!

I'll be taking a bus from Indiana. Can any locals tell me where the closest bus stop or train stop is to the arena? I checked with Greyhound and their closest stop seemed to be the Amtrak station. What's the best way to get to the arena?

I think the Amtrak station is the closest one (225 S Canal St., Chicago, Illinois 60606). It is under an hour walk to get to United Center, which would be unpleasant in January, so you can just connect to one of the many local buses that depart from there to United Center. Should take about 20 minutes total. Just Google map from the address above to United Center and pick the public transportation option. That should tell you what you need to know.

You should walk three blocks north to Washington street (if you're on Adams and Canal, four blocks if you're on Jackson and canal) then get on the #20 bus. It's a twenty minute bus ride to the United Center!

Question How long will the show last?

I just needed to know if the concert is supposed to finish before 9, and if not what time is it estimated to finish? Thanks!

When I saw them (2013) it ended around 10 pm if I remember correctly! Opening set at 7ish for about half an hour. Then another twenty to thirty minutes to get the Muse set ready and Muse played for 1:30-2 hours. Hope this helps!

You can also use the L if you're not up for waiting outside in the cold. Seeing that it's downtown Chicago, there are plenty of public transit options.
