Meeting Muse

Hey!
I'm seeing Muse in 2 days ( ) and I HAVE to meet them! LOL I live in the US and it's not like this oppurtunity will come up often... so I was wondering, are they easy to meet? Do they usually have tight security? Keep in mind that they aren't as popular over here as they are in the UK.

But anyway, do they usually walk about before and/or after the show? I mean they must get bored... I dunno

For those of you who have met Muse, when, where and how did it happen? I MUST KNOW! I am obsessed...

Hang out by the backdoor or bus after the show. You might catch chris with his arm out the window smoking a cig, or they might come out the bus. ORRRRR if you're way up front, you might get lucky and get an aftershow pass and hang with them back stage. ORRR if you're like me, you might meet someone from Warner Bros who'll hook you up. I have met them thrice now.

The longer you wait, the bigger th epay off, seriously. If you bail right after the concert you wont get crap, but i fyou hang around you juuuust might get an autograph and tell them they're wonderful.

they have to enter and leave the venue at some stage. case the joint when they rock up (ie see where the car/bus/whatever drops them off, which door they use) and then after the show, wait around the same spot.

I think stalking is a talent that takes many years to perfect...you have to start small, then one day...you'll get to that big goal.

I give you one bit of advice, be not above making a fool of yourself. Wearing a tshirt with the bass players name across the front is bound to get you attention...you just have to be able to take that Bellamy laughing and pointing at you.

go for the band members that the groupies normally avoid. in this case, that'd be chris. he's my favourite anyway, but if you give them attention first, you're more likely to be seen as a fan, rather than a matt groupie. I was chatting to chris before the metro's gig, and a few clueless girls in the queue saw matt pass briefly and I overheard one say to the other: "that's... ummm.. the guy from muse... i think... i'm sure it was!" so I said "nah, it was their guitar tech, he looks like matt though, eh?" and they believed me.

HAHAHAHA, good one.

Chris seemed pretty friendly. I was all shy and stuff when they were in San Diego last May. All these people were going up to the bus shoving crap through the window for them to sign, but I didn't approach them immediately as I felt bad disturbing them. I sat on the other side of the street for ten or fifteen minutes watching people approach the bus and all. When I realized how many people were doing it I was like oh pfffft.

So I walked up to the bus...Chris had his arm out the window with a cigarette in his hand. I waved my little poster thingie by the window and I guess Dom or Matt musta said something to him cuz he was looking away at the time. He turned around stuck his head out the window and I very shly asked for an autograph. The poster disappeared for a moment and reemerged later with three autographs. I shook Chris' hand and thanked him/everyone for their time, told them it was an awesome show and to come back to San Diego anytime.

I know where to go/what to do to get an autograph, but when it comes to actually getting an autograph and talking I get really shy. On some level I feel bad cuz I'm afraid I'm catching them at "the wrong time" or something.
I was the same way in San Francisco and Los Angeles.

At the party in Los Angeles I musta just hung out by the bar, or in a corner for a long time watching people interact before I finally felt the timing was right to approach anyone. In San Fran I didn't even expect to see them after the show, but my friend and I hung around dancing long enough that just as the club was closing we saw Dom and Chris walk out, a few minutes later Matt walked out too.
