Muse to Release Live CD/DVD on April 1st
"HAARP" Captures British Trio's Triumphant Sold-Out Shows at London's Wembley Stadium for 150,000 Fans
BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - February 19, 2008) - British trio Muse will release a live CD/DVD
titled "HAARP" on April 1st. 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 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 Pelé described as the 'cathedral of football.'" Muse
was the first band to play the recently rebuilt stadium, which had
previously 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, who is 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 Number 9 on Billboard's album chart in July 2006. The band
plans to write and record their fifth album in 2008.
