MTV - Muse Live Gonzo

Let the Muse-ic begin
Settle now, these worldwide rock heroes are performing exclusively for MTV as they become the latest hot act to join our MTV Live series. The band, who achieved a Brit Award for Best Live Act in 2004, will showcase all their best tracks just for you.

The gig coincides with the release of Muse’s widely anticipated second album Black Holes and Revelations, an evocative display of raw emotion and powerful expansion that seems destined to replicate the success of the boys’ other critically acclaimed material. With a distinctive guitar led sound, Muse have already accomplished legendary status having worked with prolific producer John Leckie, the man who propelled 90s superstars Radiohead to international success.

These Teignmouth lads (that’s in Devon) have been together since 1994. Matthew Bellamy (singer, guitarist and keyboardist), Chris Wolstenholme (bassist) and Dominic Howard (drummer and percussionist) are the trio behind great tunes like Supermassive Black Hole, Sing For Absolution and Hysteria.

They began life in 1994 as Rocket Baby Dolls when they took part in and won a local battle of the bands contest. Ditching university careers they pursued the music glory and now here they are just for you.

Muse Live premieres on MTV UK Wednesday 28 June at 10pm.

We’ll also have repeats and highlights throughout the week, for the latecomers including on our sister channels, so make sure you check out our schedules.

Look out also for the Special MTV2 Muse Night on Friday 7 July when vocalist Matt Bellamy and the band take up residency with Zane Lowe in a Gonzo Muse Special. The rest of the evening sees the band taking us through the most influential bands of their career, their best videos and the band takeover MTV2 to schedule and talk through their favourite current videos from other bands.
