Live DVD From Muse -- "HAARP" -- to Be Screened in U.S. Movie Theaters on Day of Release, April 1st

DVD Captures Band's Triumphant Sold-Out Show at London's Wembley Stadium

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - March 19, 2008) - The visual portion of "HAARP" -- the new live CD/DVD from British trio Muse -- will be screened in movie theaters in four select U.S. cities on April 1st, the day the package is released by Warner Bros. Records. An additional screening will be held in Boulder, CO, on April 11th.

Filmed at London's Wembley Stadium on June 17, 2007, the DVD captures the exuberant spectacle of the band performing in front of a sold-out crowd of nearly 75,000 ecstatic fans, while the CD features audio from the band's sold-out show on the previous night, June 16th. Both discs include tracks from their latest album, "Black Holes and Revelations," including Modern Rock chart hits "Knights Of Cydonia," "Starlight," and "Supermassive Black Hole."

Muse's electrifying shows at Wembley demonstrate the raw power and ambition of one of Britain's most successful bands. The shows were heralded by the U.K. press: Kerrang! said of Saturday's show: "What a gig. What a night. What a band," while The Guardian suggested that "few are more suited than Muse to take on what Pele described as the 'cathedral of football.'" Muse was the first band to play the recently rebuilt stadium, which has played host to a number of prestigious musical events over the years, including Live Aid in 1985 and the Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute Concert in 1988.

Muse, consisting of vocalist/guitarist Matt Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and drummer Dom Howard, played sold-out crowds throughout the U.S., Asia, Australia, and Europe in support of "Black Holes and Revelations," which debuted at No. 9 on Billboard's album chart in July 2006. The band plans to write and record its fifth album this year.
