      Reading was the first festival I ahve ever been to and the atmosphere of the whole day was absolutely amazing. Most of the bands i saw were fantastic but the climax of my day was most definately watching Muse. I stood at the front of the huge crowd for four hours but it was well worth the wait. I don't think that any fan could have wished for a more perfect setlist. I lost all my friends but when i spoke to them later they agreed that Muse put on the best show even though they're not huge Muse fans. It was also the first time I have seen Muse live and despite being crushed from all directions, having i man behind me trying to feel me up and man beside me with his hands high in the air, looking as though aliens were going to come down and take him off to another planet; I had the time of my life! Desperately trying to get hold of tickets for wembley, I might even have to lower myself to eBay! Thanks Muse!

      Having heard numerous good reports from various sources prior to the festival my expectations were high, and bloody hell they delivered! What a show! standing just two metres from the front of the crowd i saw everything, from the amazing light-show during Knights of Cydonia, to the pyrotechnics during Take A Bow. The sound leaving the stage varied from a melodious Forced In, to an insurmountable wall of sound during Stockholm Syndrome! Everything but Matt's microphone seemed to be working perfectly, but did that matter!? NO! The crowd joined in with the singing, and after the main set had finished shouts of "we want more!" brought about one of the best encores I have ever seen, all in all I think Muse ABSOLUTELY ROCKED AT READING!

      Wow. This was the first opportunity I have had to see Muse perform live, even though I have been a massive fan for some time. The Saturday line up on the Main stage was pretty awesome, but I lost the mates I was with some time between Feeder and The Streets. Never mind, I was not bothered about seeing Muse (and Monkeys) on my own - my ignorant friends dont understand how amazing Muse are anyway! I was obviously very excited, but I had such high expectations having waited so long to see them, that I doubted whether they (or anyone else!) could be as good as I hoped! They were. The two or so hours I was watching them were quite simply amazing. I have never experienced anything like it. From the first wail of Knights (didn't see that coming!), to the last imperfect cadence of Take a Bow; it will not surprise me if I never see another gig like it again even another Muse one! The show production was perfect, very Muse like, high-tech, and high-impact - especially the 30' flames at the end of TAB, the heat of which was easily felt from where I was standing. Im sure everyone here knows and agrees just how amazing Muses music is, musically and lyrically I certainly love it. They really took it to a whole new level when they performed some of their best that Saturday. Muse managed to make some amazing tracks sound even better! My personal favourites from that night were, Knights, PIB, Hysteria, Time is Running out, Feeling Good (so happy they played that), every other song they played and Take a Bow. I was quite surprised to see the band finish with that, being a very powerful song lyrically, and not so well known, but it worked, and I was glad they exposed it to the non-Muse-fan parts of the audience. It was a treat to see 3 (and a half) awesome musicians doing what they love, better than most can imagine. You would expect Muse to be good live with all the Best Live Awards they win, but they truly are in a league of their own, especially that Saturday. I watched the interview on BBC2 with Lowe and Whiley when I got back, and was impressed to hear the boys say that that gig may have been 'the one'. I feel very privileged to have been there! Although it doesn't completely surprise me, as the atmosphere that night was intense, and they connection between audience and band was unreal. Sounds strange but it really did feel a bit spiritual, and somewhat unearthly (no, I wasnt under the influence of any foreign substances!). Anyway, in short, it was a gig that no words can truly give credit to. I don't think I'll ever experience anything like it again, but nevertheless cant wait to see them again soon. Muse are simply premier. (Look forward to seeing you guys in Glasgow in November!)
