An excellent presence on stage! Strong vocals, and supportive sound, they really let you rock out with them, and get into the feel of the music. The atmosphere, is incredible too. LCD backdrops, and loads of fog, confetti and even balloons make the experience all the more enjoyable.
Though Matthew is known for his energy on stage, he also tends to stay on one side of the stage during the performance. Sometimes enabling a clear view of him. In a few instances, the guitar garbles the vocals, and other instruments.
Muse - Kicking off the show with a most powerful opener, 'Hysteria,' they really embrace the stage for all it's worth, and even more. Lights and fog, synchronized with each other, reels in the crowd, and from there, the energy doesn't stop flowing. Playing a wide range of songs, from, 'Sing for Absolution,' to 'Plug in Baby,' they like to keep you on your toes. They make even the softest ballads like 'Blackout,' something to jump to. Downtime between songs is usually filled with random riffs, from oldies, and impromptu. Ending the show with their hardest, most captivating song to date, 'Stockholm Syndrome,' the crowd erupted for one last time. Not ending too quickly however, they drug it out, with a heavy, groove-feeling riff that could have kept going forever, and the crowd would have rocked them on. Glasto' has definitely been one of their absolutly best performances to date.
