Muse set to tour Australia in2013?

Despite earlier news that Muse won’t tour Australia until 2014 reports from New Zealand now suggest that we’ll see the band back in our part of the world sooner than expected.

According the New Zealand Herald frontman Matt Bellamy told them that the band will be “here in the first part of next year”. While Stuff.co.nz claims that the likelihood of an upcoming New Zealand tour is ‘’high’’ quoting drummer and percussionist Dominic Howard. ‘’It will probably be after our next summer,” Howard revealed. ‘’We love touring New Zealand – absolutely 100 per cent we’ll be there, it might just not be for a year.’’

The updated tour plans contradict comments made by the band in July when they told triple j magzine’s music editor Samantha Clode that a visit to Australia and New Zealand wasn’t likely until 2014. Following an interview with the band Clode announced on Twitter that although Muse was “chuffed” with triple j’s joke version of the band’s single Survival there’ll be “No Oz tour though ‘til 2014”. That tweet has since been deleted.

The Skrillex loving trio haven’t been seen in Australia since 2010, although they did tour twice that year – headlining the Big Day Out in January before returning for a low key tour eleven months later. These second shows saw the band playing atop giant towers erected in the middle of arenas surrounded by what FL’s reviewer described as “enough End Of The World art direction to make it seem like Pink Floyd never happened”.

That review of the band’s show in Sydney in 2010 also noted: that “Muse will always straddle the divide between cool and geeky, no matter how many times their songs are used in vampire movies. As we leave the stadium reeling, the one name that emerges in conversations all around us is that of the late Freddie Mercury’s. Certainly Muse have put on a glam show worthy of comparison to their countrymen, Queen. And Bellamy, with his shining falsetto, guitar solos and even shinier pants, could well be the man’s natural successor. We’ll probably find that out for certain on the next Muse tour, which one has little doubt will be on the moon.”

The 2nd Law will be released on Friday, September 27.

Sounds like it would be a passable Absolution-era B-side.
