Muse to Headline Reading & Leeds Festivals

For the third time since 2006, Muse have been confirmed as headliners for the Reading & Leeds festivals in 2017. The rock festivals, which have been running since 1950 (well, Reading at least), are hugely popular, attracting close to 100,000 fans over the course of the August bank holiday weekend.

Festival director, Melvin Benn, has this to say:

"I’m thrilled to be able to announce Muse as the first headliner for Reading and Leeds 2017.

"Their incredible live show promises to be an unforgettable performance - we have so much more to announce and I can’t wait to reveal the rest of the line up."

Muse have promised more details on their performance early next year (after their annual Christmas present, maybe?):

"We’re very excited to be playing Reading and Leeds again. More news about our plans for 2017 coming in the new year."
