Muse steals the show at Coachella Day 2
Muse has become a top name in music for some time now. The band consisting of Matthew Bellamy, Christopher Weolstenholme, and Dominic Howard have become well known for their amazing live performances full of energy. Their 4th album, “Black Holes and Revelations,” won a third place finish at NME for a 2006 Album of the Year award, and overall they have garnered much recognition including five Q Awards, eight NME Awards, and four Kerrang! Awards, among many others. Thankfully for Coachella fans, these rockers got lucky and caught an early flight out of Europe before the volcano ash would prevent them from coming to the States.
Not only did they celebrate Record Store Day with the release of a limited edition “Exogenesis” vinyl in the U.S., but they were the headliners for day 2 of Coachella, so it was an easy assumption that they would be one of the top sets of the day. According to Stuff, everyone at the show commented that the superior sound system the rockers performed with was the best they’ve heard. Not only did they put on a visually stimulating performance with lasers, but performed some of their major hits. Lead singer Bellamy sported some red pants and kooky blue glasses and continued to get the crowd clapping along, bobbing up and down throughout their songs.
