when I think of my fav muse gigs Leeds 11 doesn't even cross my mind and that was my 14th time seeing them, it was special darkshines and space dementia <3 but not amazing . For bigs gigs Wembley 07, still one of my fav gigs; s4a should of never been dropped for the DVD!

RAH was my fav gig I just remember bursting into tears when Matt appeared at the organ to play megalomania (I was intoxicated which didn't help with the emotions)

SBE is now my favourite gig; loved every song on the setist (bar futurism). Having never seen MM live due to only seeing them live for the 1st time in 06 when I was old enough to go by myself. Being 2nd row and seeing the look on the guys faces made it priceless and so special. I listen to the audio of it and when the crowd is singing it just takes me back!

I did lose faith for a bit I didn't waste my money during the 2nd law but glad I gave them another go and managed to go SBE gig. It restored my faith in the band and between SBE and reading had my faith is the crowds restored after finding the crowd uninterested and boring during the gig I went to on the drones tour.

Till number 19 such sweet memories

^ This.
SBE 2017 definitely deserves a place alongside Wembley 07 and RAH 08, genuine high-water marks for Muse. After the Drones shows, I was ready to pack them in as a live act but this has restored a lot of faith.
I saw 3 during the 2nd Law era and nothing even came close, even the SBE 2013 show which was great but you know, just great not special.
I rewatched the Reading 2011 show. Meh.

Not rating R+L 2011 genuinely just doesn't compute with my brain.

Always been surprised by just how highly some people rate RAH as well. Good gig, sure, but not that special other than Fury, Meg and a nice venue, no?

Wasn't about the setlist, they could have played almost anything that night and it would have been great. It was like a homecoming or a lap of honour after becoming a genuine stadium band. Perfect combination of performance, crowd, venue and timing.

We almost all agree that the SBE gig has been completely mental and legendary.
But, taking into account my personal choices, I would've found it even more so if the setlist went like this (substitutions are in bold):

Recess (replacing Easily)
Hysteria
Assassin
Dead Star
Muscle Museum
Showbiz
D&B Jam
Butterflies & Hurricanes
Fury
Futurism
Megalomania (replacing Citizen)

Glorious
New Born
Yes Please (+riffs)

Sing For Absolution
Plug In Baby
Space Dementia (replacing Knights)

And you? What would your ideal setlist for the show have been like?

Only Minor tweaks -

KoC out, SS in
Hysteria out, Apocalypse in
Fury out, Space Dementia in

But they're luxury tweaks, I'm more than happy with what we got

If I was to nitpick I'd probably go for

Hysteria out, Map in
Plug in Baby out, Bliss in
Fury out (I don't really like it but it was good to have actually now seen it live, it wasn't awful), Exo-Politics in
Knights out, Take a Bow in


Probably a piano song like Space Dementia in place of Citizen, but I like Citizen live anyway

A BAH-SD combo...
Exchanging PIB with Bliss and KOC with SS could have been great, too.
Personally I chose Recess instead of Easily because I like it more, musically and lyrically speaking. And it has a really insane whammy solo!
And Megalomania over Citizen is just because the second one hasn't really been such a rarity in the last two years despite of its sheer quality, and I LOVE Megalomania arrangements, composition and overall atmosphere. I think it deserves to be given more times to shine.

Part of me wishes I'd started listening to Muse a little bit earlier than I did, as that could've put me in line for RAH, which in turn would have been my first gig by any band. Which would've been pretty cool - on YouTube the show looked great.

Oh well. The first show at the O2 in November 2009, with Guiding Light and Feeling Good, and no MK Ultra or piano Cave, was a good start.

Bliss should've closed over Knights, 100%. That was the only area where I felt they remotely slipped up.

In a perfect world, regardless of my own list:

Showbiz
Dead Star
Muscle Museum
Easily
Glorious
Butterflies & Hurricanes
Citizen Erased
Fury
Assassin
Stockholm Syndrome + riffs + Yes Please + riffs

Sing For Absolution
Eternally Missed (for Hysteria)
(New Born, if I could cheat and add one more)

Futurism
Plug In Baby
Bliss

I sometimes think about that. Got into them late 2008 but the earliest I could've got into them was maybe around 2006 (heard FG and Knights and loved them but no one knew who they were when I asked)? Annoying since loads of peeps on here have probs seen me go on about how much I love the BH&R era but, even if I had been into them, I would've only been 10/11 and gig-going just wasn't something that was in my head back then so I'd have missed out anyway

It was a thrilling gig. All due thanks to Muse, and to for the board for lobbying.
We have to give a big slice of thanks to the fan (Karen) whose idea it was and organised the Set-list by request petition that caught the attention of the band and the tour manager.

Over 6K signatures is a pretty good effort considering the amount of people that initially poo-pooed the idea at first

Technically, it was Matt's idea. He floated the idea on Twitter in response to all the backlash over Montreux.

Yeah sorry the "idea" of a setlist picked by fans wasn't exactly coined by a fan in 2016.

Was gonna say, pretty sure Matt's been talking about it for a while but kept saying he was just unsure of how best to do it. Always find it a bit presumptuous crediting a petition for something like this unless the band themselves mention it

In fact, wasn't that petition made in response to Matt mentioning that they were trying to work something out?
