Music Movies: Wednesday 13th August

No sooner than I put up the three videos on Monday than three more come along in quick succession.

Muse and The Streets: Who Knows Who
I love Muse, as you may have guessed. I used to hate The Streets but since I saw Mike Skinner at Wembley I’ve changed my views of them… so what better than the two of them together in a breakdancing video? Sounds crazy I know, but it just works. (Disclaimer: I receive a small payment for every one of you who watches this video)

The Coral: Being Somebody Else
Who doesn’t love these scousers? Exactly. Watch their new single below.

The Subways: I Won’t Let You Down
Old school style video for The Subways new one. Bitterness coming through from them? No, of course not!

Live: Muse at Wembley Stadium (Saturday 16th June)

 
By on Sunday, 17th June 2007 at 3:11 am
 

This post was originally posted over at Londonist.

Never ones for being the most talkative on stage, Muse played the first night of their two night stand at the new Wembley Stadium with few words to the audience. This was more than made up for however by the enthusiastic set full or surprises. If you’re going to the Sunday Muse gig I’d strongly suggest not reading on if you want to keep it all a surprise.

Muse at WembleyGoing back to the start however and Rodrigo Y Gabriella surprised many in the audience who had slated their unique brand of Mexican acoustic guitars to not work in a stadium. However work they did as they perhaps managed to out-perform Dirty Pretty Things who followed them up, putting in a decidedly average performance, playing lots of new material and seemed to get the crowd going less that Rodrigo Y Gabriella did.

The last support was The Streets who managed to get everyone going perfectly, creating a bit of a party atmosphere as he confided in the 90,000 strong crowd that he has a yearning to be like Freddie Mercury, leading to a mass sing-along. Wheeling out all of his well known material, he did a storming job of warming everyone up, however did manage to jinx it my proclaiming that “there definitely won’t be any rain” – come the second half of Muse’ set, rain it does.

Finally the time came for what we’d all paid for. Muse. Set amongst a futuristic stage of Satellite Dishes, giant light-up balloons and a video screen that makes your brand new top of the range plasma look like something your Gran should own, they really had outdone themselves with the set. Twenty minutes late the stage lights dim and searchlights go round. Smoke oozes out and yet no Muse. Instead, they arrive from the back of the sound stage in the centre of the stadium, in a blast of tickertape that is still coming down four songs in.

Muse at WembleyWalking through the walkway set in the middle of the standing area, they reach the stage, immediately launching into “Knights of Cydonia” and “Hysteria”, which got everyone going nicely before launching into “Supermassive Blackhole”, sending those in the crowd not already going ape over the edge. Dominic Howard, Muse’ drummer, was the most talkative, commenting “It looks like you’re having fun, I know we are!”

Playing all of the old favourites, Muse managed to squeeze 22 songs into their two hour set, finishing their main set with an extended version of “Newborn”. However, the best was saved for the encore. “Soldiers Poem” was dedicated to “unsung heroes”, and featured a stadium full of people holding phones aloft before a dreamy rendition of “Blackout”, which featured two acrobats suspended by giant white balloons soaring above the crowd for possibly one of the most beautiful moments to be seen so far at Wembley. All attention was off the lads as the two acrobats flipped and twirled with grace and beauty, with the music providing the perfect soundtrack.

“Plug in Baby” was the last all-out energy filled number for many people, complete with tens of huge balloons filled with glitter floating around the stadium. Final encore was saved for the epic trio of “Micro Cuts”, “Stockholm Syndrome” and “Take A Bow”, all of which were, well, amazing, ending in a bout of fire and glitter that would make many lesser artists quiver in their boots.

After such an epic evening it’s easy to see how Muse could sell out Wembley twice. Theatrical, amazing musical talent and all out entertainers. The future of Rock? I think so.

After the jump: Photos, setlist and video in a few days.

Muse at Wembley

 
By on Monday, 21st May 2007 at 5:18 pm
 

The new Wembley StadiumMuse announced earlier today their support slots for their two massive dates at Wembley Stadium on Saturday and Sunday 16th and 17th June.

On the Saturday they’ll be joined by The Streets and Rodrigo Y Gabriela, and on the Sunday they’ll be joined by Biffy Clyro and My Chemical Romance.

I’m going on the Saturday, and am decidedly peeved so far at the lineup. Granted, they are (reportedly) going to be announcing some extras in the support stakes, however at the moment, well, the Streets? its MUSE not bloody Red Hot Chili Peppers we’re supporting here. There are strong rumours of We Are Scientists doing the extra support on Saturday, which will make me happy, but at the moment I’m seriously considering turning up at 8pm (we have seats) so we don’t have to witness Rodrigo Y Gabriela hash it up in front of like 70,000 people. Will we even be able to hear them? They’re hardly a “Rock” act from what I’ve seen of them…

This doesn’t make me very happy. Oh well.
