Muse announce Wembley Stadium date (2007)


Story by Jack Foley

MUSE are the first band to announce a concert date at the new Wembley Stadium next year. The supermassive group will play the 75,000-seater venue on June 16.

The trio, who recently completed a three-night residency at Wembley Arena, announced the concert on Monday, December 4, and tickets will go on sale from Saturday, December 9, at 9am.

Three support acts are expected to be announced shortly.

Muse lead singer Matt Bellamy also confirmed that a number of other big European venues would be announced as well for around the same time.

The band has a hard-earned reputation for being one of the best live acts around and they are currently riding high from the critical acclaim surrounding their latest album, Black Holes & Revelations.

Wembley Stadium was supposed to have played host to new concerts last year, when bands such as Bon Jovi and The Rolling Stones had been booked to open the new era for the “home of English football”.

But owing to the troubles surrounding the completion of work, last year’s gigs had to be moved to alternative venues.

However, Wembley is now expected to launch this coming May in time for the FA Cup Final.

As yet, Muse are the only confirmed concert for the new stadium but a spokesman revealed that further acts would be announced in due course for 2007.

It is not yet known whether Muse will be the first act to perform there.
