It is likely that over 90% of the $49 million earned by Muse this past year according to Forbes' estimates was generated by live touring performances and concert merchandise sales and less than 10% by recorded music (mechanical, performance and synch royalties from albums, downloads, radio airplay, and streaming) and publishing.

http://www.forbes.com/profile/muse/?list=celebrities

Attendance (Estimated) at Muse Concerts in Europe during the Drones era (2015-16):

1,216,000 Festivals (38 headlining shows x 32,000 avg including an est 75,000 at Glastonbury gig and an est 50,000 at Eiffel Tower/Champ de Mars UEFA gig)
728,000 Arenas (52 shows x 14,000 avg)
13,500 Clubs (9 shows x 1,500 avg)

1,957,500 Total Attendance in Europe (plus 580,000 in Asia and the Americas from 38 arena shows, 3 festivals and 3 club dates)

Other superstar artists' box office 2016 touring attendance by comparison (Europe only):

1,400,000 Bruce Springsteen (25 stadium dates x 50,000 avg + 3 festival gigs x 50,000 avg)

1,286,000 Coldplay (20 stadium dates x 59,300 avg + 1 Glastonbury festival gig x 100,000 est)

Muse beat Coldplay, U2, Biffy Clyro and The 1975 to win the Best Act in the World Today award. Accepting the award, frontman Matt Bellamy reportedly told the crowd: “Thank you; we are the best act in the world today. We don’t deserve it; let’s be honest. Shout out to U2 – we owe so much to them. We toured with them in 2009 and learned so much from them.”

Drummer Dominic Howard added: “I agree with Matt. It’s a ridiculous title but we’ll take it. As with all these things, we’re accepting that on behalf of our fans. Thank you.”

This is the sixth Q award Muse have won surpassed only by 17 NME awards the band have received.

Given some of the stuff from 10+ years ago that Mr. Bellamy was on about, I wonder if Alex Jones is now tearing his hair out at photos of Matt meeting the woman he considers the literal devil.

Accusing opponents of weakness and disloyalty
Violence and physical intimidation
Gross oversimplification
Attacking the news media

Characteristics of a Sociopath: http://www.naturalnews.com/036112_so...influence.html

Sociopaths are charming. Sociopaths have high charisma and tend to attract a following just because people want to be around them. They have a glow about them that attracts people who typically seek guidance or direction. They often appear to be sexy or have a strong sexual attraction. Not all sexy people are sociopaths, obviously, but watch out for over-the-top sexual appetites and weird fetishes.

Sociopaths are more spontaneous and intense than other people. They tend to do bizarre, sometimes erratic things that most regular people wouldn't do. They are unbound by normal social contracts. Their behavior often seems irrational or extremely risky.

Sociopaths are incapable of feeling shame, guilt or remorse. Their brains simply lack the circuitry to process such emotions. This allows them to betray people, threaten people or harm people without giving it a second thought. They pursue any action that serves their own self interest even if it seriously harms others. This is why you will find many very successful sociopaths in high levels of government, in any nation.

Sociopaths invent outrageous lies about their experiences. They wildly exaggerate things to the point of absurdity, but when they describe it to you in a storytelling format, for some reason it sounds believable at the time.

Sociopaths seek to dominate others and win at all costs. They hate to lose any argument or fight and will viciously defend their web of lies, even to the point of logical absurdity.

Sociopaths tend to be highly intelligent, but they use their brainpower to deceive others rather than empower them.

Sociopaths are incapable of love and are entirely self-serving. They may feign love or compassion in order to get what they want, but they don't actually FEEL love in the way that you or I do.

Sociopaths speak poetically. They are master wordsmiths, able to deliver a running stream of consciousness monologue that is both intriguing and hypnotic.

Sociopaths never apologize. They are never wrong. They never feel guilt. They can never apologize. Even if shown proof that they were wrong, they will refuse to apologize and instead go on the attack.

Sociopaths are delusional and literally believe that what they say becomes truth merely because they say it!

What songs would describe the state of the world today?

Muse: Take a Bow #apocalypseplease #TheGlobalist

http://www.nme.com/news/music/muse-m...ection-1860434

R.E.M. #itstheendoftheworld "...team by team, reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped..."

President Barack Obama on election aftermath: http://www.mediaite.com/online/obama...he-apocalypse/

"David Remnick writes in The New Yorker that Obama literally consoled staffers the morning after the election by saying, 'This is not the apocalypse.' The president himself told Remnick, 'I don’t believe in apocalyptic—until the apocalypse comes. I think nothing is the end of the world until the end of the world.' ”

Peter Beinart in The Atlantic: "The Electoral College Was Meant to Stop Men Like Trump From Being President. The founders envisioned electors as people who could prevent an irresponsible demagogue from taking office."

"It is 'desirable,' Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist Papers No. 68 published on 12 March 1788, 'that the sense of the people should operate in the choice of' president. But is 'equally desirable, that the immediate election should be made by men most capable of analyzing the qualities adapted to the station.' These 'men'—the electors––would be 'most likely to possess the information and discernment requisite to such complicated investigations.' And because of their discernment—because they possessed wisdom that the people as a whole might not—'the office of President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.' "

"As Michael Signer explains, the framers were particularly afraid of the people choosing a demagogue. The electors, Hamilton believed, would prevent someone with 'talents for low intrigue, and the little arts of popularity' from becoming president. And they would combat 'the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils.' They would prevent America’s adversaries from meddling in its elections. The founders created the Electoral College, in other words, in part to prevent the election of someone like Donald Trump."
