It's not their decision and they have done non-joking playback plenty of times before.

And yeah, these places make them do the instruments that way and they just go along with it for the money now. Those things can be big bucks for low effort.
The woah bits are sung to my ears. Perhaps recorded live beforehand but they definitely sound different from the record.

It's cringe-inducing to see Matt use some generic Glee-style vocals when he's the same guy who sung "Uno", "Cave", "Showbiz", "Citizen Erased" in his unique style.

Just watched the live version.

Matt's vocals are live, definitely. Lot of effects on them, but they're live. The backing vocals... not so sure, but eh.

It's a good go at it. Though, to be honest, as a song with a lot of electronic elements, I'm not surprised that it doesn't sound much different live from the recording - it's a pretty simple song to perform. I think at a gig, through a proper, good PA, it'd sound cracking. Plenty of womp. I'm still keen to hear it live.

As for the song itself - I literally just listened to it about 20 times on repeat because it got itself stuck in my head today and I couldn't think of anything else to listen to.

I still like it. It's so, so, so standard Muse-by-numbers, but I'd happily take it as a Madness replacement on the setlist. No issues here.

....then again, I didn't hate the new Linkin Park album, so I guess my music taste is obsolete

Also confused about that ending now that I've watched the video. There's a lot of delay on his voice but that held note also sounds phased like it was doubled. There is a harmony part that's basically singing the same note for a short time, also Matt's voice. That could be it.

You're expecting Madness to be replaced on the setlist? Uh-huh

Unless Dig Down actually tops the charts (which I kinda doubt it will), Madness doesn't have the slightest chance of being replaced by it. Madness is their biggest hit; it's the one they have to play.

There's no level of success that Dick Town could have that would erase the popularity of Madness. It doesn't work that way, and it's not going away.

Is it just me now or Muse seriously needs to take a break from touring and making music? Like a year or two or three to clear their minds? Not only is their music uninspired, but they even look tired and bored. ANKOK playback is the last straw for me. I missed their 2 concerts in my country during Drones Tour. I regretted it because they played CE and Assassin on the 2nd gig, so I was hoping to see them in 2018... but looking at the stream from last night's gig.. I'm not sure I want to anymore.

That's what makes it so hard for me to ever concretely say "I can't support this, I'm not going to Muse gigs anymore". They always have that slight chance in them to suddenly whip out one of your absolute faves that never pops up otherwise, in Europe at least.

That, and I don't actually mind seeing stuff like PIB, Supermassive, Starlight and Stockholm at just about every gig. Dropping down to 15 songs at big gigs is a tester though...I remember thinking that was a bit skimpy on the Psycho Tour ffs.

That is actually a good reason to stop supporting them
