New York - On April 8, acclaimed English rock group Muse played the "World's Most Famous Arena" Madison Square Garden in New York City, for a great turnout.
This headlining show was a part of their "Simulation Theory World Tour." They opened their set with a condensed yet memorable version of "Algorithm," and it was followed by the upbeat and edgy "Pressure" and "Psycho."
Frontman Matt Bellamy proves that he only gets better with age and experience. He exuded a great deal of energy and charisma throughout the night.
They continued with more songs from their latest studio offering, Simulation Theory, such as "Break It To Me" and the eerie "Propaganda," prior to throwing in their smash hit "Uprising," which was well-received by all.
Equally noteworthy were the psychedelic "The Dark Side," "Madness" and "Mercy"; moreover, their acoustic gospel version of "Dig Down" was an added treat thanks to its catchy groove. They closed with the ethereal "Starlight," which is this journalist's all-time favorite Muse tune, where they left their fans wanting to hear more.
Fortunately, there was more, and they returned with an encore that included the soaring full version of "Algorithm," which was sheer excellence, and the progressive tune "Knights of Cydonia."
