Information

Muse have performed at the Royal Albert Hall in London in support of The Prince’s Trust charity on Monday 3 December. The gig was announced by the band on 3rd October. Tickets were on sale the 12th October. Tickets were limited to two per person. Ticket resale was limited through Twickets, a fan-to-fan ticket resale platform.

Omaze were holding a sweepstakes competition for The Prince's Trust charity where you could win VIP tickets to the concert, which included the band dedicating a song just to the winner, private tour of the venue and taking a photo together. Flights and 4-star hotel were included. The dedicated song was Uprising.

Algorithm was soundchecked.[11][12]

The crowd sang "Happy Birthday" to Chris before Showbiz.

This concert marked the first live performances of Algorithm, Break It To Me and the famous Heavy Rock Songs Medley that Muse talked about a few times in some previous interviews. It was also the first performance of Reapers since 2016 to go beyond the intro/outro. And the only preformance of the medley to contain Micro cuts and Dead Star.

An official photo gallery is available on muse.mu. Which can be found here

Final performance of Isolated System to date.

Matt threw his guitar completely through one of the Marshall Silver Jubilee cabinets at the end of the Metal Medley.
