Muse Rod Laver Arena Melbourne Seating

Just grabbed 4 Gold class tickets for the upcoming Muse Show in December.  Muse shows are always Super Massively Spectacular and December can't come soon enough.

Below is the floor plan for Rod Laver Arena at Melbourne Park.

The Resistance lives on.  After taking the nation with sheer force at the Big Day Out in January, Muse will return to bring 2010 to a close with the biggest shows they’ve ever played in Australia – pulling out all the stops to bring their entire, world-class arena production Down Under for shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.

“Muse's sound was made for arenas, stadiums and festivals, not bloated but just huge – an awing supermassive black hole that sucks one into its gravity well of power.” - Hollywood Reporter, April 2010

The Muse juggernaut is currently rumbling through Europe playing maximum capacity at stadiums and festivals and they return to Australia to fulfill a promise to deliver their full European and US arena production show at long last.

Expect something more? Expect Muse. Join the growing numbers of the resistance this December, and bear witness to the greatest rock extravaganza the universe has ever seen.

Muse: The Resistance and V (Visitors)

I have just recently purchased the new Muse album: The Resistance and have been memorised by it ever since.  The album for me, is a masterpiece and lead singer Matthew Bellamy is a god damn genius.  The ability to transcend genres and make a truly exciting piece of musical art is a rare feat these days - especially in a market saturated with synthetic pop idols and a limited and controlling media landscape.

Why mention V?

The flow or order of the album seems to be an alternative take on Revelation, be it the end of days, Armageddon or what ever you want to call it.  It appears to be a fragmented idea on existence, one that deals with love, aliens, death and DNA.

The parallels it has with the old (soon to be new again) TV series "V" which also had parallels with the Nazi Holocaust is uncanny. I re-watched the Mini series not too long ago so the Story is still relatively fresh in my mind.

Looking at the official Muse wiki on the album: quite a few songs draw from George Orwells Nineteen Eighty-Four which was indeed an original V influence.

Unnatural Selection: suggests:

"that the song might address the idea of the British royal family being descendants of giant lizards, as proposed by David Icke among others"

Lizards.....Its the damn V soundtrack!


"The song tells the story of humanity leaving a destructive Earth behind to populate elsewhere in the Universe." and "life is seeded across the universe from other sources, for example, arriving to Earth on comets, hence "cross pollination""

Anyway, this is just my take on the album, and as music is about as subjective a topic as you can get, don't blame me if I am completely off.
