Published Oct 28, 2013Theatrical arena rockers Muse are ready to show home audiences who missed out on their recent tours what the band have been up to live by announcing their upcoming concert package, Live at Rome Olympic Stadium. The release arrives as a CD/DVD package and on Blu-ray December 2 via Warner Bros. Records.
According to a press release, Muse's July 6 performance at Rome's Stadio Olimpico earlier this year had the act performing for over 60,000 fans and showing off "the most extravagant set build and spectacular stage show of any Muse tour to date." The performance is furthermore described as a "mesmerizing journey using pyrotechnics, expansive digital screens, and a troop of actors."
"This is the biggest tour we've done in terms of scale and production value, and it's definitely the show we're most proud of so we're really excited to be able to release it as the first-ever ultra-high definition concert film," Muse said in a statement. "It captures an extraordinary amount of detail and not just everything we're doing — the fans, even those at the back, the set, the actors, and the incredible atmosphere on a very special night in Rome. We can promise our fans, whether they managed to come to the live shows or not, an entirely new Muse concert experience."
While the tour had the band repping their 2012 set The 2nd Law, the setlist also scatters older tracks like "Uprising," "Supermassive Black Hole," "Time Is Running Out," "Starlight" and "Plug-In Baby."
Ahead of the home release, Live at Rome Olympic Stadium is being screened in 20 cities around the world on November 5, with another 40 cities getting screenings the following day. When possible, it will be screened in Ultra-High Definition 4K. You can get more information about the screenings here.
Muse have upcoming dates in United Arab Emirates and Australia next month. You can check out the show details over here.
