When thinking of active Rock bands powerful enough to move a stadium size crowd, a short list comes to mind. Of course there are The Rolling Stones, U2, Bon Jovi , along with Iron Maiden in certain corners of the earth, but how about throwing Muse into the discussion?
An English Alternative Rock trio from Teignmouth, Devon, Muse began their journey back in the mid ’90s with hopes and aspirations, but little did they know, one day they would become one the most successful bands in the world. In fact, since the release of Absolution in 2003, each of their albums through 2015’s Drones peaked at number 1 on UK charts, and by the way, 2001’s Origin of Symmetry hit number 3 there. A fever which spread across the continents like wildfire, through the years it became evident that Muse was a band that transcended genres – Alternative Rock, Pop Rock, and Heavy Metal fans alike became drawn into their sound. Completely hooking the North American market as more than just a whisper of a must see band, 2006’s Black Holes and Revelations would change the game for Muse and soon they were headlining their own gigs at New York City’s Madison Square Garden in 2007. Since, it has been a steady growth, establishing Muse as one of the biggest bands around.
