This is something I'm perfectly ok with.

It could be worse, it could be Dave Grohl telling you how the gig you are at is special, that they are going to play all night and push the curfew, Rock n Roll and all that. Then you go look at the setlist and realise they've been doing the same thing every night.

They never have been, tbh.

It's more that once they consciously started trying to interact with the audience more it became a bit forced/scripted (i.e. Matt had a 'chatter' script at Wembley in 2007 - although that said, it was their biggest gig ever so I can understand having prompts for nerves).

Boom! Fairly sure he gives Earls Court a cheers at the end of SS too.

Except Dave Grohl is funny and entertaining on the mic. I don't mind his talking at all and enjoy it.

Besides, "same thing every night?" Yeah, they have a basic set of songs they rotate through, with variations here and there, but how many bands really REALLY mix things up? Like... Pearl Jam? The vast majority of bands do the same thing exactly or a mix of basically the same thing. It's pretty much logical--there's only so many songs you can have mastered and ready for live playback.

To go back to the original topic, I agree that Muse should let their music do the talking. I'm ok with banter if it's good and non-preachy. Matt is naturally shy, so he shouldn't feel pressured to talk much. Just let the awesome music talk (as others have mentioned).

I think I remember a gig on The Resistance arena tour (Stockholm? Oslo?) where him and Matt were having a discussion through the mics about his out-of-tune bass before playing a song, and similar during the Assassin tease in Belfast last year. That and the occasional cheers, as said above.

Speaking of others to Matt talking, I swear Dom's done less talking since the end of the Black Holes tour. To some degree, I think Matt still mainly keeps it to "thank you", "cheers", etc, with a few odd rock-star-cliche asides here and there. But yeah, some acts are good at public speaking - Frank Turner's usually good, for one example, while in a cliched way, so is Billie Joe Armstrong - while with Muse, I'm more alright with them saying the odd line but deploying a kick-ass show to do most of the talking.

Ok, after reading all the comments I feel calmer They came to our country a week ago for the first time ever (it was also the first time I was seeing them live) and I couldn't stop thinking about how silent they were, so concentrated on their instruments as if they came here only to do their job as fast as they can and eventually go home.
I was like "C'mon, guys, you're visiting us for the first friggin time ever, notice us!!"

But as I understand they're always like that. Yes, Matt did say something like "Thank you, Kaunas" during the concert and at the end of it he and Dom (who did a lot more speaking but I couldn't understand a word he was saying) said a few words.

Maybe I just didn't know what to expect and don't know them so well and so I've started to carp at them. As I see now, I should be (and hell I am) amazingly grateful to have had the opportunity to see such a band live

There's a band whose name I can't remember right now, but they have such variation in their sets that every night is completely different, even moreso than someone like Bruce Springsteen. There's so much variation that because of this the band release sort of "season tickets" for fans, which let you go to something like any 5 gigs on the tour you want.
