Muse coming to Letiště Letňany

The British threesome will be in Prague for the third time with new material

British synth-rock band Muse is coming to Letiště Letňany in Prague on May 26, 2019, as part of the Simulation Theory World Tour.

Fans who bought the new album Simulation Theory online from the band’s official website before Nov. 9 will receive a code so they will be able to buy tickets online starting Nov. 13 at 10 am. Live Nation club members can buy tickets starting Nov. 15 at 10 am, and the general public can buy them starting Nov. 16 at 10 am from the Ticketmaster and Ticketportal networks.

Fans who buy the Enhanced Experience Package will have access to a Mixed Reality Pre-Show Party, with virtual reality games inspired by tracks from the new album, and other benefits.

The tour will last from February to July and cover North America and Europe. Prague is the first date announced so far in the European leg.

Q magazine has called the band “the greatest show on earth,” while The Independent called a previous tour a “jaw-dropping extravaganza.”

Simulation Theory, set to be released Nov. 9, will be the band’s eighth studio album and the first new album since Drones in 2015.

The new album is expected to be less dark in its themes than the previous three. Reportedly, it deals with simulation and centers on the idea of fantasy becoming reality. It is influenced by science fiction and 1980s pop culture. Five of the albums’ 11 tracks have already been released as singles, starting with “dig down” from May 2017.

The band formed in 1994 and consists of Matt Bellamy on lead vocals, guitar and keyboards, Chris Wolstenholme on bass guitar and backing vocals, and Dominic Howard on drums.

During their career, the band has won multiple awards including two Grammys, two Brit Awards, one Ivor Novello Award and one MTV Music Video Award. So far, the band has sold 20 million albums worldwide.

The band’s music has been described as alternative rock, space rock and progressive rock. Bellamy has described Muse in 2002 as a “trashy three-piece.” Howard said he associate progressive rock with 10-minute guitar solos. “But I guess we kind of come into the category. A lot of bands are quite ambitious with their music, mixing lots of different styles – and when I see that I think it's great.
I've noticed that kind of thing becoming a bit more mainstream,” he said in a 2009 interview.

Muse has been in Prague twice previously, in 2016 in support of the Drones album and in 2012 on The 2nd Law Tour.
