Muse Brings First Euro Leg of Simulation Theory Tour to an End

After nearly five months of nonstop touring, Muse has officially wrapped on the second leg of their Simulation Theory World Tour… for now. The English rockers kicked off the European leg of their tour back in May, nearly three months after the tour opened in Houston on February 22. Since then, the band has seen only about a month of downtime and is ready for a bit more rest until they pick back up in September to finish out seven shows in Europe before returning to Asia and South America in the fall.
Touring their most recent album, Simulation Theory, Muse pulled out all the stops for this world tour and it wasn’t any different at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid. From setlist to production, the Grammy Award-winners gave it their all to wrap up this leg of the tour and it sure showed.
Whether talking about the gigantic metal skeleton animatronic or the incredible twenty-five song setlist, it’s quite clear that Muse came to impress. As expected, they were sure to pull a good number of songs off of Simulation Theory , while also mixing in multiple hits from their extensive catalogue. Check out the setlist from Madrid here!

The band opened the show with the alternate reality version of “Algorithm” off of Simulation Theory. Taking the alternate reality theme into account, the performance was masterful featuring an intense light show and fully lit-up marching band. Check out the opening performance below!

Continuing to touch on Simulation Theory, Muse flushed out songs like “Pressure,” “Propaganda,” and “The Dark Side.” Each performance was accompanied by a unique production style including a panoramic light show, 180 degree changing monitors, and LED costume and instrument designs to really hit on the album theme. And of course, fans loved every bit of it!

Still using their innovative production to their advantage, including a catwalk that extended half-way through the floor audience, Muse made sure to also pile on the hits, pleasing both old and new fans alike. From “Plug In Baby” and “Uprising” to “Supermassive Black Hole” and “Madness,” the audience was fully immersed in the entire production.

The hit rockers ended their first set with the help of audience vocals as they performed a beautiful rendition of “Starlight” before coming back out for a five-song encore including recorded versions of “STT Interstitial 2” and "STT Interstitial 3.”
The encore ultimately ended with a performance of the hit song, “Knights of Cydonia” as a burst of shiny confetti dispersed throughout the entire crowd. It was a perfect finale to an extraordinary night in Madrid and the end of this leg of their world tour.
