Lame old same old.
You've got to be kidding me. This is the setlist? Wasn't this the only non-festival headlining show they're doing as a part of their July-August US tour? If that's the case this setlist is LAME.
It was not lame. There was nothing lame about this show.
It was not lame. There was nothing lame about this show. 
Everyone who went agrees that it was a great show. The band was superb, the crowd ecstatic, and everyone left more than satisfied. Unfortunately, there's a group of jaded setlist nerds who spend too much time online that have been critical of the setlists for the whole Resistance tour. These people have a hard-on for the early stuff and loathe all romantic songs off Black Holes and The Resistance. This is because their love lives are a complete joke and they can't relate, and because they take themselves and their "taste in music" way too seriously. Those people are throwing a fit over New Born's absence as of late that leaves Plug in Baby as the lone representative of Origin of Symmetry. But that whole album is being played in it's entirety later this month at two of the biggest rock festivals in the world, one which will be professionally filmed and almost certainly uploaded to YouTube immediately after. So those people should be pointed and laughed it. There's few things more laughable than getting upset over the setlist of a show you didn't attend.
Fantastic show. Looking forward to Reading.
Also there was a marriage proposal during Guiding Light. Congrats to the lucky couple.
I agree with bitchincamaro. I follow Muse setlists closely in this site, and I wasn't there last night but I've been in enough Muse gigs to know that a concert like this one can't be lame at all. People focus on these lists too much. Besides, there was B&H, which is always something to be thankful. I've attended already 2 Muse concerts (Reading 2011 will be the third), yet none with B&H.
I'm not fond of GL but the marriage proposal seems to me very, very romantic.
Oh wow, 1 song makes it ok that they play the same setlist every single gig after lying to their fans that they would allowed them to pick the songs for shows last Summer. That's not bullshit at all.
I don't care how the people that went to the show feel because I really don't care about the people that went to the show.
Good for them that they enjoyed themselves but nobody has the right to tell me whether or not my OPINION is right or wrong and this setlist, much like Muse in general as of late, is FUCKING LAME!
I'm also disapointed.
Think we must wait to Reading/Leeds Festival to see something just a little unpredictable!
I want to clarify my comment from earlier. I never said the show was lame, honestly if I was at this show I would have had a great time. But still, this setlist is really lame considering the circumstances. This is supposed to be a headlining non-festival show for Muse and the only difference between this show and LA Rising (a festival were they weren't headlining) is that they played Guiding Light. I'm sorry if I offended people who attended this show, but if you compare it to the Russia setlists or almost any other headlining setlists fro 2010, you can easily tell that this is a lame setlist. Since this is their own show they should at least do another song in addition to United States Of Eurasia during the piano portion of the show (i.e. Feeling Good, Ruled By Secrecy, Bliss, or Sunburn).
Exactly. We're not saying the show was lame, the set list is what was lame.
I was there and it was great! Butterflies and hurricanes was awesome! Whole set was really good. I saw them last year, and yeah it was pretty much the same, except GL and B&H. But cmon its muse, they are awesome, I would go see them if all they did a setlist of only toby keith songs(and I dont like toby). You want a new exciting setlist? well youre gonna have to wait probably a year or two til the next album comes out. Leeds and Reading are going to be epic, but until then dont be surprised when lollapaloosa comes around and you get pretty much this set list. THEY DID NOT HAVE TO TOUR THIS YEAR, they openly said they were taking this year off. And considering last night was one of the best concerts I've ever seen, that's pretty good for a night off. Would I have loved it if they had played Citizen erased, take a bow and new born? Yeah! But hey, there's always next time!
Indy was the third Muse concert I've seen in the last year and a half along with Detroit and Columbus. The setlists have stayed fairly consistent of course with a 3 or 4 changes. From Detroit to Indy, they played New Born, MK Ultra, Feeling Good and Unnatural Selection in favor of Butterflies & Hurricanes, Guiding Light and Map of the Problematique. Columbus featured Ruled By Secrecy.
Obviously, I don't feel that any of the shows were lame or I wouldn't keep going. That said, Muse probably play one of the shortest sets of any bands that I've seen recently.
U2 has played a fairly regular set through the 360 Tour but it still runs at about 2 hours with 20+ songs. Last summer, Green Day played a 30-35 song set running close to 3 hours. Bruce Springsteen was 60 years old and welcomed the Detroit crowd with a hearty "Good evening, OHIO!" but he still played an epic 3 hour set including the entire Born to Run album.
I've always thought that Muse could easily put Citizen Erased, Bliss, Take a Bow and maybe even Showbiz among others into their sets. That would bring their shows up to 2 hours and about 20 songs, turning their great concerts into quite awesome ones. We can dream, can't we?
^ Exactly! Green Day had about 160 own "whole-concerts" on their recent tour, and non of them had less than 24 songs - their festival-shows had even more! So why won't Muse do something like that? At Roskilde Festival 2010 they only did 15 songs in their headline-slot?!
The Boss does it, Kiss does it, System Of A Down does it etc.
Why will Muse only play Bliss, Take A Bow and other "speciels" every 20th show?
I don't know if it's me, but when you got 5 albums and have the status they have in the music world, your shows shall not be so fucking easy to predict!
I went to the concert and loved it, but I agree with what a few of you are saying. They have the type of fan base (like me) who traveled to see multiple shows during this tour. I think they have to throw a bone to the fans who want to hear an old song from Showbiz or OofS. I don't think it would alienate a new fan. It might actually have them want to look up thier old stuff too. I guess their show is so programmed (lights, lasers, etc.) that it might be hard to switch it up. I'm just so envious of those fans that are going to the hear the entire OofS album.
I just feel lucky to have seen them in such a small venue. The three other shows I have been to were in arenas. I probably will not be this close again for a while. At least I got to see B&H live!
i would have to say that i was disappointed they didn't play more old tunes BUT regardless best show ive seen. even made undisclosed desires great
From this thread it looks like it would be for the best if Interlude is counted as a separate song. If you don't like it, then feel free to discuss it in that thread
