We ventured out of rural Gloucestershire last night to go and watch Muse at Birmingham NEC. I had heard before I booked the tickets that they were supposed to be awesome live, and it's true - a fantastic night had by all.
The support act, The Noisettes were rubbish, I don't know why a band as good as Muse didn't have someone better supporting them. The lead singer sounded like Skin from Skunk Anansie who I happen to like but this band sounded like they were making it up as they went along!
Luckily Muse came on about 8:30pm and stormed the show, the stage setup was one of the best I've seen and there were giant balloons floating all over the place. Matthew Bellamy smashed his guitar at the end (don't see enough of that these days do you?), and it was confetti galore.
Anyway, here's a couple of pictures just to prove we left the office...
