Muse, the world-renowned, multi-award-winning band, embarked on their ambitious Drones World Tour in 2015–16 and played over 130 shows across the globe. Known for pushing boundaries in terms of their stage production, the band performed “in the round” from the middle of the arena, with the stage design and configuration giving fans a 360-degree audio/visual sensory experience.
Central to the tour’s visuals were the Drones, which flew autonomously above the stage and across the audience, as well as giant projections that interacted with the band members on stage. This LED- and laser-laden spectacle perfectly complimented the band’s celebrated repertoire. Key songs performed on the tour included Psycho, Madness, Uprising, Plug in Baby, Supermassive Black Hole and Knights of Cydonia.
Constructed from footage shot at multiple shows, the concert movie includes never-before-seen special effects along with exclusive insights from the band in the introduction.
The New York Times has described the Muse live experience as “an endless build-up, heading for one peak after another”. Here, we find the band at the height of their powers, creating an unforgettable fan experience that demands to be seen on the big screen.
There will be a special screening of Drones at City Screen York on Thursday 12 July 2018 at 8:30pm. Tickets are available here.
