Muse played Wimberly Stadium, Streets Opened
I wanted to post about this right after it happened but got a bit sidetracked as my blog became almost completely devoted to The White Stripes. I think Muse and Mike Skinner would completely understand. On the other side of the pond Muse are huge and rightly so. Their albums are incredibly solid offerings of rock with beautiful lyrics and lovely melodies. Live they put together quite the show. Watch out Bono and company, for their live shows remind me a bit of some of the U2 concerts i have been to and if they keep at it could definitely rival them based on stage production alone.
Mike Skinner of The Streets had a jolly ole' time with the role as opener. Posting on The-Streets.co.uk Mike Skinner wrote: "Wembley Stadium was really good fun. I always like a challenge and trying to entertain a rock crowd with rap music is exactly that, but they were really up for it in the end. I didn't get the tambourine out though." Skinner also revealed that he saw Daft Punk at the O2 Wirless gig.
"But oh my gosh! The Daft Punk show is unbelievable. Two robots playing BLAZING grooves from this huge pyramid made of TV screen," he said. "Felix from Basement Jaxx introduced me to Thomas Bangalter after as well, which was the most starstruck moment of my life." Skinner added: "I was just standing there listening to what he was saying, enjoying the moment and then this girl started rattling on in my ear going on about The Streets blah blah and I'm thinking, 'I'm having the most starstruck moment of my life here and there's this silly girl ruining it by getting starstruck at me...just shut up for one minute!' Totally mindblowing show though. You have to go and see Daft Punk if you can."PopCrunch
