Muse Fans Start Petition for 20th Anniversary Gig
15
Muse fans have started petition that calls for the band to play a special 20th anniversary gig, NME reports.

The petition asks that the band play a small gig in their hometown of Teignmouth, where they formed in 1994, or in London. The petition states: "The fans would love to see Muse celebrate their 20th anniversary in style for 1 night only in the UK. Whether that be in their hometown of Teignmouth or a small venue in London.

"It's not every day a band can celebrate their 20 years together and while they are about to start recording their 7th album, it would be fun for both the Muse boys and their fans to play at a venue with no expensive productions involved."


Muse have said that they will start on their new album next month. Speaking to KROQ at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the band revealed their plan to start on the follow-up to their sixth album "The 2nd Law" in May. Drummer Dom Howard commented: "We're going to start this year ... (Coachella) is our last two gigs, then we're completely done for touring this album. We're going to go back in May and start working on some new stuff, so I think we'll start making it this year ... If we can get something out this year, that would be great, but definitely next year."

Muse will play the second Coachella this Saturday (April 19). Speaking previously about their plans for the new album, Matt Bellamy said that he had already been writing, commenting: "I've written some good tracks, actually. We haven't had a chance to rehearse them out yet ... I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we've experimented with on the last two albums, which is electronics, symphonics and orchestral work and all that kind of stuff."

    Hire a new singer and I'm in... Matthew Bellamy sucks balls as singer...

    He sucks balls as a singer? Of course it's all a matter of opinion whether you like his voice and fair enough. But in no way is he a bad singer with the incredible vocal range of his!

    His range, despite some good falsetto, isn't actually that impressive compared to a lot of singers. It's mainly the power of his voice and the consistency over so many concerts (which is all more important than range anyways). Especially in the last few years his voice has never been better.

    Matt Bellamy is a brilliant vocalist. His full voice range isn't actually much higher than most (G2-Bb4), but his (stupidly powerful) falsetto is what brings it up to another level. Some people just really don't like his tone and general style. I personally love it and Muse are my favourite band I think it's the vocals that split people who like Muse and those who don't..

    mate I don't know if you realise this, but Matt IS Muse, in every way. Replacing him would be like replacing the chocolate, in an M&M, with water.

    Why don't you go and comment about someone who can't sing intead of one of the best vocalists ever

    I think Muse have tremendous talent, and I like Matt's voice. However, that being said I think that they fall into a camp of bands where the high ranged vocals split listeners down the middle of either love or hate. Other bands in this camp would be Rush, Yes, Jellyfish, Dickinson era Maiden.....
