Muse / October and November 2012 UK Tour

By on Thursday, 7th June 2012 at 2:30 pm

Muse have announced an admittedly short (for now?) UK tour for October and November; they will be stopping in Glasgow, London, Birmingham and Manchester. This follows yesterday’s release of the teaser trailer for ‘The 2nd Law’, their forthcoming album that John discusses in this post.

They have a new ticket scheme designed to thwart touts (hopefully): you must be a member of their Web site and apply through a special online ticket application to request standing tickets to the gig of your choice from their limited stock set aside for members. The application window closes on Sunday 10 June at 18.00 British time. All the details are here on Muse’s official Web site. The general ticket sale will begin on Thursday the 14th of June.
