None other than stadium-shredding megastars Muse are set to touch down in west London. 

The trio of Devon-born boys have, in the space of six albums, become the biggest band on the planet.

And deservedly so. They’re in the middle of a global arena tour in support of their sixth release, the ambitious and bombastic The 2nd Law, with Matt Bellamy and co. slated to play Wembley Stadium this summer.

Before then, though, fans will get the chance to see them in the far more intimate surrounds of the 2000-capacity Shepherd’s Bush Empire, a chance that doesn’t come along all that often, if ever. 

Never ones to shy away from grandstanding, epic future-rock, Muse have built on their impressive debut, Showbiz, with its subsequent follow-ups to amass a catalogue packed with global smash singles including Plug In Baby, New Born, Time Is Running Out and The 2nd Law lead Madness. 

Nothing is too big for the band, no idea too OTT, as evidenced by their current tour’s unveiling of a giant upside down pyramid that descends during the performance and rotates into different positions.

Now that’s the sort of show even U2 in their giant cocktail glass heyday would have bowed down to.

So expect a laser-filled, hit-laden show of monolithic proportions. And remember to dig deep!
