Muse will lay down the Law in Canada next spring.
The proggy British trio’s North American tour in support of their new album The 2nd Law will kick off in our home and native land, promoters have announced.
Singer-guitarist Matthew Bellamy and his bandmates will get the ball rolling with three Western Canada shows beginning Feb. 3 in Edmonton. After swinging down to the U.S., they’ll come back across the border for a trio of gigs in Ontario and Quebec. See below for a full list of dates and venues.
Tickets for the Western shows go on sale Friday, Oct. 12 at Ticketmaster, with seats for the Eastern concerts available Saturday, Oct. 13. They’re priced at $39.50, $59.50 and $65, with various fees and taxes added in some cities. Most shows will be all-ages, with general admission on the floor and reserved seating in the stands. U.K. rockers Band of Skulls are the opening act. No word on whether Bellamy will have his own muse — wife and Hollywood actress Kate Hudson — and their young son in tow.
Released in late September, the 2nd Law finds the ambitious group continuing to push the boundaries, using thermodynamics to illustrate the unsustainability of rampant technological growth while adding dubstep, funk and orch-rock into their complex brand of bombastic, proggy arena-rock. Their previous disc The Resistance won Best Rock Album at the 2011 Grammys.
