I belong to the Must See Bliss Live Before I Die club. Unintended too, but Bliss is more urgent while Matt is still willing or able to do the extended falsetto thing.

Idk but maybe all the setlist moaning and pleading may have some effect on management (or Matt who calls the shots.) There's been a lot of pleading of rotating in a rarity for the US, and CE and RBS and Bliss did make a showing or too.

Let's keep up the posting. Bliss must live on!

They have already said that touring with an orchestra/string players would be too expensive, so I don't think it's anything worth hoping for.

That seems to be the general consensus, yeah.

I have to see Bliss before I die too. Start a campaign again for the tour in 2011/2012/2013?

I'm not as irked as some of you about the current tour (though admittedly, I sorta lucked out with some pretty good shows), but there were some questionable decisions, especially toward the end when Unnatural Selection and New Born began being rotated out for whatever reason, and it's not like they were replaced with another song. They were just dropped altogether, resulting in shorter sets. Likewise, while I think we can still depend on seeing New Born appear during the next tour, but less frequently. Some have suggested swapping it with Unnatural Selection at every other show, which doesn't seem like a terrible idea, though quite frankly, I'd still prefer to hear both. And yes, Matt needs to return to the doggone piano during New Born.

Speaking of piano, I'd really like to see its sequence extended. This may be easier if they remove the towers (and I think they will), as it can be wheeled in and out more efficiently without them, and the piano songs can be divided up throughout the show if what Matt says about audience contact is actually true.

As for the older songs needing to be played more, I think it goes without saying. Expending the setlist length can only do favors, especially as Muse's library grows and they have more and more hits to plow through at future shows, endangering rarities even further. I mean, yeah, while it's fun to brag that I got the only instance of Bliss in the U.S. all tour, it's fairly depressing at the same time.

I suppose I'm not as picky as some about this current (soon-to-be-ending) tour as some seeing as how it was my first tour seeing Muse live. In fact, my biggest regret may be not being able to see MK Ultra at any of my shows, since that song seems doomed next tour if the fact that it's on The Resistance and rarely ever played is any indication. But because of that, I've missed out on seeing some great songs from the first four albums, and I think all of us would love a chance to see those revivals.

This is what I'm expecting:

New Song
New Song
Supermassive Black Hole
Resistance
Hysteria
New Piano Song
Feeling Good
Undisclosed Desires
New Song
New Song
Starlight
Time Is Running Out
Plug In Baby

New Song
New Song
Knights of Cydonia

Occasionally one of the new songs will be dropped for New Born, Stockholm Syndrome or Unnatural Selection and we'll all celebrate.

Start with a "generous" 18-20 song template. Let's face it, by the time they tour again they'll have at least 12 more songs in their repertoire. They frankly can't get away with 15-18 song sets for much longer.

Start rotating older songs more often, and with better sense. Swapping Guiding Light for Citizen Erased is comical for sure, but it isn't at all logical.

Start giving more equal representation to their back catalog. They have millions of fans. We all know the music. Even giving just slightly more focus on the newer material doesn't look that bad on paper:

~1 Showbiz song a night
~2-3 Origin songs
~3-4 Absolution songs
~3-4 BH&R songs
~3-4 Resistance songs
~6 New album songs

There's about 20 right there and would probably please just about everybody, assuming it's not the SAME older songs the whole tour. Sure, maybe constructing the set might take a few minutes of extra thought. If Matt doesn't have the time, then they could hire someone who can do it. Like me.

Showbiz: If every Muse gig were guaranteed a song from the list of Sunburn/Showbiz/Cave/Muscle Museum/Uno, there would be far less to complain about. Simple.

Origin: Plug In Baby/Bliss can very feasibly be swapped for one another. Same with New Born/Citizen Erased since both have piano and guitar passages (and Matt should really go back to playing piano on New Born, but that's a whole different topic). Space Dementia, Micro Cuts, Hyper Music could feasibly be shuffled as well. Feeling Good could even pop its head in once every so often, too. I don't think people really hate that song so much as they feel it doesn't need to be played at every gig.

Absolution: Hysteria and TIRO aren't going anywhere ever, let's face it. As much as it pains me, Stockholm could be put on shuffle with another epic song like Butterflies. Small Print/Atheist could be swapped for an extra treat every so often, too.

Would this be so hard?

1 New Song
2 New Song
3 New Born / Citizen Erased
4 Supermassive Black Hole / Map of the Problematique
5 Uprising
6 New Song
7 Hysteria
8 MK Ultra / Unnatural Selection / Assassin
9 New Piano Song
10 Older Piano Song
11 Resistance / Undisclosed Desires
12 Origin of Symmetry / Absolution Selection
13 Starlight
14 Time Is Running Out
15 New Song
-----
16 Showbiz Selection
17 Stockholm Syndrome / Butterflies & Hurricanes
-----
18 New Song
19 Bliss / Plug In Baby
20 Knights / Take a Bow
This, I would love.

Whatever happens two piano songs is simply not acceptable. FFS it's a defining feature of the band. We've gone from little piano "jams" with a little snippet of a prelude in amongst 3, 4 piano songs to USoE and Feeling Good.

Hello? How many of your best songs are you asphyxiating there?

Four piano songs = perfect IMO.
