Photo Gallery + Live Review: Muse bring a lively arena rock spectacle to TD Garden

 

Muse have never backed down from progressing forward. A few years back, the British rock trio denounced their first two (incredibly awesome) albums, Showbiz and Origin of Symmetry, creating a bit of a supermassive black hole in sets that lack songs like “Plug In Baby,” “New Born,” and “Bliss”. But Monday night’s massive rock spectacle at the TD Garden in Boston left little doubt there was passion left in the cannon and enough songs available to fill a large room. Muse went ballistic in throwing out six (!) songs from their latest effort, Drones, which, admittedly, takes a bit of warming up to, but ends up being worth the listen. It’s also a measure of confidence when one of the more prolific acts since the late-’90s eschews its past to lean on its mixed-received later works. The Garden was centered by a floor stage which had Matthew Bellamy and his crew of bassist Chris Wolstenholme and drummer Dominic Howard acting like worker ants, desperate to not just fill the space, but to destroy every un-touched aspect. How does Muse lower the intensity? They don’t, they increase it. Arena rock gigs from current, modern bands are becoming increasingly rare, but without a doubt, this was the arena gig to be at, all night, any night, that night. Scan through Eddy Leiva’s photo gallery below, which also includes a few snaps in the back of openers X Ambassadors.
