Stadium rock titans Muse have announced details of a special one-off charity concert at London’s Albert Hall, which will mark their first live show in over a year.
The band recently returned to the fore, dropping the video for new single ‘Pressure’ last week. The video stars Terry Crews, and you can check it out below. After several earlier singles appeared to lean towards a more electronic, even poppy sound, frontman Matt Bellamy described ‘Pressure’ as something of a return to the old school for the band.
“It’s more like a straight Muse rock track,” Bellamy told Radio X. “It’s like a different riff every 10 seconds, basically.”
The band also recently confirmed that their eighth studio album Simulation Theory will be released on November 8. The show at the Albert Hall will take place no December 3, and will be for the benefit of The Prince’s Trust.
This will mark the band’s first concert since headlining Reading and Leeds Festival in 2017, and tickets for the event will go on sale here at 9am, on Friday October 12. ID ticketing will be in operation with tickets limited to two per person, with re-sale tickets available via Twickets. VIP experience packages are also available – offering fans the chance to have a guided tour of the building with the band and even a song dedication during the set.
“For a long time, we’ve admired the work of The Prince’s Trust,” Bellamy explained. “When we were starting out as a band the Trust actually gave us a small grant to buy our first PA system, which I still have to this day. It really helped set us up on the right road and we’re delighted to be able to play a show to raise funds for them.”
Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust Nick Stace added:”We’re incredibly proud to count the band Muse among our alumni here at The Prince’s Trust, and thrilled that they are putting on this special concert in aid of the charity. The show will raise vital funds for the work we do at The Prince’s Trust to help young people reach their potential and achieve their dreams”
