Sci-Fidelity: Muse Brings Its Otherworldly Live Show To Madison Square Garden

To call Muse’s 24-song set at Madison Square Garden a rock show would be selling it way short. Regardless what you think of the trio’s ever-changing recorded output, live these Brits deliver an experience that will leave even non-believers completely mesmerized. Mixing the sci-fi themes and ’80s pop-culture leanings of latest LP Simulation Theory, Muse also incorporated dancers, lasers, neon lights, illuminated sunglasses, huge video screens and some sort of massive monster than rose from the stage during the encore (when photographers weren’t allowed to officially shoot the performance). MAGNET’s lensman Wes Orshoski was there to take it all in—because he doesn’t fear the dark side as you do.
