Muse frontman Matt Bellamy has said that he is hoping to get up close and personal with his fans during the band's upcoming stadium tour and may embark on some stagediving if the mood takes him.

With a summer of huge shows ahead of them, Bellamy spoke about what Muse had in store for the shows in a chat with BBC 6 Music. Talking about wanting to get closer to the fans, he said:

"We've got a bunch of new songs to play and the show is going to be completely different to last time. This tour we're trying to reach out and be closer to the fans. I think the last tour we were a bit distant at times. This time we have got a bigger stage and the thrust to get out there, shake hands and I might do some stagediving."

The band, who released new album "The 2nd Law" in 2012, will play four shows in the UK, starting in Coventry on May 22 before two shows at London's Emirates Stadium, home to Arsenal FC, on May 25 and 26. The short jaunt will end in Manchester on June 1. Dizzee Rascal will support on all dates.

Thanks to NME for the report.

    ...and I might do some stagediving
    Sounds like an ironclad promise to me.

    Stagediving is just something you do in the moment. Only a nerd would actually talk about doing it.
    If I could thumbs up this 3 times, I would. Twice for taking almost the exact words outta my mouth and once for Skeletor.
