On January 29, larger than life rockers Muse returned to the tri-state area with a performance at New Jersey’s Prudential Center, just two days after selling out Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The show came in support of their latest record Drones, featuring the biggest live show of Muse’s career, which is saying something for a band always known to deliver a bombastic live special.

Last year we were treated to a rare intimate performance from the band when they graced the tiny Webster Hall. Of course there was no way to compare that show with the arena version of the show, as they are completely different animals. While it was great to see them up close and personal, there’s also something about seeing a band put on a state of the art live spectacle with a moving stage set up that included literal flying ships, moving drones, and a spinning stage, allowing everyone to have the best seat in the house.

As an old school Muse fan, I’ll admit I wish we got a few more older songs aside from “Time Is Running Out” and “Hysteria,” (where is the love for Origin of Symmetry?), but it was just amazing to see the band at work in such a huge way. It was certainly an unforgettable sight.

[…] The show was a continuation of their tour for their 2015 album Drones, and more or less featured a similar set to what they gave us when we saw them last at the Prudential Center. […]
