No I know, and it sometimes seems like it actually boils down to heavier songs in smaller venues vs hits in arenas. I only meant to add given the band's current choices, I don't believe that bringing back these songs would solve much (but I do think that as is regularly suggested, bringing more rotation to the sets would be the most logical improvement to do).

Especially if they pick something high energy and the crowd enjoys it anyway

But I definitely wouldn't want them to play sometbing, it get a shite reaction, and then put them off
I wish it was so, but to be fair...not really. In the Unsustainable tour I remember Bliss and Sunburn getting very tame reactions, In my drones gig Stockholm might as well have been a new song, and when Citizen Erased kicked in the whole arena seemed unsure what was going on. As some other people pointed out... Muse spent the last 10 years marketing themselves as a pop-rock band, and it has worked out well for them. But they did become hostages to their singles. I don't blame them for going on venues packed with 20k people and not taking risks with old heavier songs, though. That's just a logical step given their musical direction and what that changed for the "Muse" brand. The average Joe with a muse ticket leaves the arena very satisfied, and I guess that's what matters at the end of the day.

From the videos though it seems very clear to me that the band felt less contrived and just happier overall, during the SBE gig. I hope they do let that feeling guide them in further releases.

Also it has been very satisfying reading about everyone's positive experiences at the gig. It's definitely a good change of scenery for this board: it has been moaning collectively ever since the TR tour kicked off without MK Ultra in the sets

I wouldn't consider someone who knows Muscle Museum a casual.

The answer to this is to do exactly what Matt Bellamy claims he wants to do (speaking on Twitter after the sbe gig)

"In future we will do other shows like this I'm sure. Maybe 'on the side' to accompany big shows. "

Simple as that. So they could do say Manchester Arena for two nights and a fans night at the Manchester Academy on a third night. Of course whether they actually follow through with that idea is another thing entirely.
