Muse The 2nd Law Tour 2013
The 2nd Law tour, a concert by the acclaimed British prog-rock band Muse, will be moved from Europe to North America in January 2013. The first event will take place in San Diego on January 21 and the band will stay in NA until their last show, which is scheduled for April 26, 2013. It is the band's eighth concert tour, and it will be supporting their latest album, The 2nd Law.
Muse are a British space-rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. It consists of Matthew Bellamy (lead vocals, piano, lead guitar), Christopher Wolstenholme (mainly keys, bass, rhytm guitar) and Dominic Howard (percussion, drums, sampling). The band is famous for their powerful and energetic live performances, as well as having many influences and often combining elements of different genres in their music. Some of the most blatantly obvious inspirations for their sound are Radiohead, Queen and Chopin, whose musical imprint and signature can be found in most of the band's material (in a positive way). Muse are also one of the few that manage to succesfully combine elements of numerous genres, including prog rock, alt rock, heavy metal, classical music and electronica. All of that brought them huge critical acclaim, and earned them three Grammy Award nominations.
Their sixth album, The 2nd Law, was announced by the band members as something radically different. This time, other musicians were invited to work with the band, such as the composer David Campbell (worked with Radiohead and Paul McCartney), to help them shape their new material and bring them even closer to modern electronic music. Since the first two singles, Survival and Madness, it was obvious the ratio of musical influences has truly changed in favor of electronic music, more specifically its subgenre dubstep, and although the album received mixed reactions from the fans, its full potential is yet to be seen on their live tour in 2013.
