For all the time I spent wondering why Muse didn't advertise at all in the US, going on the shows etc anymore... now that they're going to play Dig Down on Colbert, I feel like it's officially the end of an era.

Linkin Park were big fans of Depeche Mode. Chester also loved Muse and attended a Muse arena gig on 9 April 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona during The Resistance tour.

“They’re one of the best – if not the best – live performing bands in the world at the moment,” Chester said about Muse in an interview with NME in 2009 before headlining Sonisphere. He also wanted LP to tour with Muse in 2007 and 2014.

Linkin Park was the first Western rock band to sell out stadiums in mainland China. They sold 25,000 tickets at a stadium venue in Shanghai in 2007, performed in Shanghai again in 2009, and played stadium gigs in five different cities in the Middle Kingdom in 2015. They have also performed nine shows in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

The British bands who have played the most shows in China are Suede, Deep Purple and the Rolling Stones. Muse took the stage to perform two arena shows in Beijing and Shanghai in 2015 with over 17,000 in attendance while George Michael and Wham! became the first western pop group to play in that market in 1985 (in place of Queen).

Mediabase stats show 'Dig Down' had over 3,000 spins in the past week at US rock radio or about 440 daily plays.

The official video for 'Dig Down' has now been viewed over 9 million times on YouTube and streamed over 10 million times on Spotify.

'Feeling Good' by Muse was the 69th most downloaded track in France for the week ending 3 August 2017. It moved up an impressive 58 places from last week's SNEP digital singles sales chart. It falls a few slots to #85 on the chart for the sales tracking week ending 10 August 2017.

'Feels Like Summer' by Weezer this week leapfrogs 'Dig Down' on both the Mediabase and Billboard Alternative Songs airplay charts in the US. The Muse stand-alone single still gaining weekly spins holds steady at #3 on the Mediabase chart and climbs this week to #3 on the Billboard chart. It is or has been the #1 or #2 most played track at modern rock stations in the following markets: Chicago, IL; Nashville, Knoxville, and Johnson City, TN; Buffalo, Syracuse and Hudson Valley, NY; Columbus, OH; Salt Lake City, UT; Tulsa, OK; Honolulu; Bakersfield and Fresno, CA; Austin and Corpus Christi, TX; Eugene and Portland, OR; Colorado Springs and Ft. Collins, CO; Wilkes-Barre, PA; Gainesville, FL; Norfolk, VA; Appleton, WI; Burlington, VT; and Fayetteville, AR.

Feeling bad for the approx 100,000 fans about Muse and Lorde having their Lolla headlining sets cancelled on Thursday after playing for only about 15 minutes due to the nearby thunderstorms and lightning. My flight into O'Hare that afternoon was cancelled due to the bad weather so I missed out seeing Muse for the 11th time and Cage the Elephant for the 2nd time.

Easily [b-side to Starlight and one of Matt's favourites] made its live debut tonight. Glorious was also played live for only the 2nd time in the UK (1st performance was at Earls Court in London on 20 December 2004). Showbiz was played live for the 1st time at a London venue since 27 November 2003 at Wembley Arena. Muscle Museum and Showbiz were both first played at the Astoria 2 club [closed in 2009] in London on 9 December 1998 according to setlist.fm and now 19 years later at the SBE.
