Muse To Be First UK Band To Play Wembley

Muse are to be the first British band to play the newly built Wembley Stadium next year.

Tickets will be made available by Wembley soon.

Muse’s current single “Knights of Cydonia” is available now. But you can watch the Spaghetti Western/ Barberella-style promo video here:
