Speculation: Could Muse play Showbiz live on this upcoming tour?

Based on zero evidence, I just know that this is one fan favorite that hasn't been brought back around yet where alot of others have seen some light the last two tours (more-so the last tour). While others are begging to see Showbiz again. Surely Muse knows this?


Is Matt able to hit that high falsetto comfortable enough for this song? It has strong falsetto in 2/3 of the choruses and of course the big one at the end.

It does?

Anyway, Matt showed that he could hit the note back in 2012, and used a more yelling technique to hit sustained higher notes later on. But of course that will already be 3 years ago once they start touring again,

But he could just lower the note to an F#5 and play it without that much difficulty.

Actually on re-listen the two chorus ones arent too strong, but the last one well...yeah. And yeah I'm aware of all this. I know he can hit it but how comfortably. Look how the ending to Survival went over live, always dropped down a bit. So thats probably to be expected if they tried Showbiz.

Yeah it was a rhetorical question.

I'm not sure you are. Matt DID do the Survival ending properly on a number of occasions before dropping it. And since Showbiz probably wouldn't play Showbiz as a regular if it was brought back, he would definitely have been able to do it back then.

The point is that we don't know because we don't know how Matt's voice is changing until we actually hear it. I think the next album will tell us if he's still able to do it.

Maybe not, the next album might not feature any falsetto for all we know. Wouldn't mean for sure that he isn't capable. Just that they chose not to use it. Like I said we have zero evidence I just know alot of people might want this to happen. Maybe they'll see this thread lol. That was the point.

Well of course I'm aware that Matt might suddenly decide to not bother with pushing his limits, but considering the latest album+tour, along with the fact that this album is gonna be heavy rock, I'm willing to bet that he's gonna try some metal screaming, both falsetto and "full" voice.

Not to mention that every album except Absolution has featured falsetto G5s or above.

But lets just say that yes, they can play it. Worst case scenario they lower the final note...or possibly the whole song. I would prefer the former.

Let's try to avoid creating a circle jerk at least once.

Just saying, if they don't end up playing Showbiz I'll blame you.
