They did somehow a rarities club tour - it was called "Psycho UK Tour" and it was just 3 years ago.


Bringing the "By Request" shows/rarities to Europe (and maybe the US) is a nice thing...

I think my thinking is tainted by the reasons why I kind of gave up on Muse years ago.

Promise people the chance to vote some of the setlist in 2010 ->end up with one requested song->immediately now assume you will get fucked with just 5 requested songs when SB got 10, just by seeing the number 5
Never play "deep cuts", as I guess they are called now, and for years emphasize stage production over setlists and the actual music-> it never even occurred to me Muse have actually done a small-scale tour in the previous years

Great to see that the band has been more "superfan"-friendly in the last few years. I assume this is because they've understood the value of holding onto the core fanbase now that the highest commercial heydays seem to be over, at least for the moment. Or maybe I'm wrong again, because I don't seem to know anything these days.

but tbh, they played rarities at the festivals and played the "regular" stuff at their own shows... although you should assume, that there should be more "superfans" at their own shows and more people liking the "regular" stuff at festivals

and the Psycho tour had one date in Wales which was the first since 2006 i believe. Its not like its a massive ask for them to at least attempt to cater to the fans from Wales. There are plenty of small and big venues they could take their shows to, and this goes for the majority of big artists.

I think it’s more important to take it to places further away that maybe don’t see special songs or small gigs often first. Wales specifically doesn’t get many gigs but the UK as a whole is a hotspot for them. There’s a lotta other places way bigger than here that barely get touched with regular gigs, let alone rarity stuff. Like I said before as well, they won’t do it in tour form without massively reducing the amount of rarities/requests they play each night (back to the 3-5 of the Psycho Tour), which isn’t worth it imo. I’d rather them be sparse but really fucking special than clustered into a diluted mini-tour.

I just hope they squeeze a few more in before LP8 comes out, ‘cos I’ll be surprised if they continue it once this big ‘mindblowing tech demo’ world tour kicks off.

^ Update on that from Matt - plan is for 1 more in Europe and hopefully 1 in the US over the next year (so presumably before LP8)

Gonna guess Italy and LA, Alcatraz (Milan) and the Wiltern or Mayan. Would love to go to a gig in the US but never really seriously considered it 'cos of the cost...this could push me though.

Was going to make another typical comment about the audiences, but thinking more one show for the whole country (you could even say NA) will make every ticket very precious.

True, there’s always gonna be that small contingent of fans that travel abroad though. Then again, I could be ok with skipping it. Thinking about how starved the US has been for rarities, the votes might actually end up being pretty conventional.

Probs wouldn’t even get tix so I guess it’s all irrelevant anyway eyyyyy

1 US gig would be such a nightmare to get tickets to it's not even worth getting your hopes up, tbh.

Of course there are and I can't stop them but it would still rub me the wrong way if they were from the areas of western Europe where those shows are local and regular.

And my standards are not very high for song choice anyways.

I'd say Italy or Germany (Cologne?), yeah. Amsterdam would be nice though

That's exciting to hear there's the potential for a US request show, until I realize that it'd probably just be NYC or LA (like the Pyscho 'tour') - Chicago, Detroit, or Toronto and I'd easily be there, though.

I live in the Midwest, and I'd still rather pay to travel to NYC or something than Chicago or Detroit.
Hell, the Twin Cities always gets shafted, why not here? We've got some nice venues, a great airport, and loads of stuff to do (if you don't mind crazy weather.)
