Muse Storm Madison Square Garden

Teignmouth trio Muse stormed into New York City to put on a stellar performance at Madison Square Garden August 6.

During an epic 100-minute set filled with flares, lasers, balloons and intense light shows, the band played material spanning all four of their albums and even threw in a couple of impromptus jams for good measure.

Openers Cold War Kids impressed the sold-out crowd and appeared typically humble to have been given an opportunity to grace the world-famous MSG stage.

Meanwhile, Muse arrived on stage fresh from their appearance at Lollapalooza over the weekend to the sound of a pro-libertarian speech before blasting into opener 'Knights Of Cydonia'. The theme of freedom continued during 'Invincible' during which violent images of protest rallies and riots were projected on to the screens behind the band.

Singer Matt Bellamy appeared to have trouble remembering how to play early single 'Sunburn' and whilst familiarising himself with its piano intro, fondly recalled one of the band's earliest American gigs in 1999 at the city's tiny Mercury Lounge.

The full set was:

01. Knights Of Cydonia
02. Map Of The Problematique
03. Hysteria
04. Supermassive Black Hole
05. City Of Delusion
06. Butterflies And Hurricanes
07. Hoodoo
08. Apocalypse Please
09. Feeling Good
10. Sunburn
11. Invincible
12. Starlight
13. Time Is Running Out
14. New Born
15. Plug In Baby
16. Soldier's Poem
17. Unintended
18. Stockholm Syndrome
19. Take A Bow
