BracketTown - Downtown Atlanta, GA
April 6th, 2013
This concert literally fell into my lap. I've been in love with Muse since 2008 when I became somewhat obsessed with pseudo-rock star glory in the form of the video game Rock Band, and while looking for songs to download, stumbled upon Hysteria. Since then, they have been on my bucket list, and I actually purchased tickets to a show in Indy two years ago before I had a major injury that required ankle surgery and prevented me from going.
Fast forward to 2013, where I had tickets to the final four to see some basketball games in Atlanta. Imagine my excitement when I'm surfing the web on my phone while driving to Atlanta and I find out that one of the headliners for the weekend is Muse. I was thrilled.
I have heard from multiple sources that Muse has an absolutely amazing show - several saying that it's the best they've ever seen. I'm ready Muse. Blow my mind!
On the Saturday of the two final four games, I left a bar in Atlanta's Brackettown after the first game just in time to sprint out to the outdoor venue, which was completely packed. As I was weaving in out of the tens of thousands of people trying to get closer, the Muse show started, and before I knew what hit me, vocalist Matt Bellamy was hitting the insane falsetto chorus to Supremacy. This show was on, and it was great from the very first note.
