Muse Live at the Globe Arena, Stockholm
But Ilan Rubin´s The New Regime must be the biggest disappointment as a support act so far, here I was hoping to listen to some wonderful artistic electronic rock. I love his both EP´s.
That wasn´t what Rubin´s band had in mind, they were more keen on playing a Jimi Hendrix cover plus an endless jam of 70´s rock, not to mention hard rock versions of his synthesizer based rock.
Now over to the main event of the evening.
Oh, I have had tickets to a Muse show before but they were cancelled twice, anyway, third time´s the charm and now a sold out Globe Arena in Stockholm was lucky to have Muse on their Drones tour.
The first non-cancelled concert in Stockholm since 2009, and what a concert it was.
It was expected that the setlist was built on their latest album Drones where the 10 minute long The Globalist turned the arena into a spaceship and we left the planet for a journey of musical exctasy.
The 2 hour show included a brilliant out-of-this-world lighting show and I´m not sure I have seen anything like it before, if someone told me Steven Spielberg produced it I would believe it.
The clinical 360 stage was just perfect and gave the audience a sense of futurism, especially when the band performed the main theme for World War Z, The 2nd law (isolated system). I had goosebumps all over.
How about the audience then? They were fantastic and sang along like a 12,000 vocal strong choir to classic songs like Starlight, Plug in baby, Hysteria, Uprising, Time is running out and Knights of Cydonia.
I slept like a baby after the show, oh yes, this is true happiness.
