Muse Brings the Madness to Madison Square Garden
Tuesday, April 16, 2013 | 2 years ago
From Brittany Spanos's write-up of the April 15th show:
With lead singer Matthew Bellamy's piercing, Freddie Mercury quality falsetto leading the charge, Muse kept their performance theatrical and provocative during the first of two MSG performances this week. It was a more comfortable stage presence than I've seen the group display in the past; rather than relying on perfectly timed strobe lights and visual elements, the special effects actually felt just as they should: special. Bellamy's confident, '80's hair metal-level strut was a particularly assertive move that kept the use of the screens surrounding the stage and tiered pyramid of even more screens, that would showcase futuristic, sci-fi clips whenever the pyramid was lowered to the center of the stage, from becoming an overwhelming presence.
