Muse Tour Canada Once Again

Published: 2004-09-10
Neo-prog-rockers Muse are returning to North America once again this year. This time the trio is hitting quite a few more Canadian cities on their journey across the continent, stopping off at 8 in total. The band is sweeping the country from west to east, starting with Vancouver and spending Halloween playing a gig in London, Ontario before heading to the States.

Each time the members of Muse come here, the venues and crowds alike both get substantially bigger. The tickets needed to catch the band before they're playing giant stadiums go on sale today (September 10th) through Ticketmaster.

With their newest album 'Absolution', Muse are finally starting to make a dent in the North American music scene. The notoriously vicious market has never been too kind to the three Englishmen, but things are about to change. With singles like 'Time Is Running Out' the people on this side of the Atlantic are beginning to appreciate the band's operatic rock.

Led by Matt Bellamy, the trio has released two full-length studio albums before 'Absolution'. The band debuted with 'Showbiz' in 1999 with 12 songs written and composed by lead singer Bellamy. 'Origin of Symmetry' was put out in 2001 and 'Absolution' was released in North American at the end of 2003.

Muse's upcoming Canadian gigs:

September 24 Vancouver – Commodore Ballroom
October 25 Calgary – MacEwan Ballroom
October 26 Edmonton – Red's
October 28 Winnipeg – Burton Theatre
October 31 London – The Drink
November 01 Toronto – Kool Haus
November 02 Ottawa – Capitol Music Hall
November 04 Montreal – Metropolis

I'm so glad Muse are returning to Canada! They truly, honestly do perform with such style and so much emotion live. Surely, I'll be going to see them at Toronto. I can't wait. Most people should go to see them live, if the music isn't your taste, just the raw emotion and lyrics will.

Im really proud to see muse are taking the US and Canada by storm. The deserve it. They have a great music style, and Matt Bellamys lyrics are breathtaking. Plus most of their songs make you wanna JUMP! Live, muse make your hairs stand on end, with their Apocalyptic, prog-opretic rock.
