The Psycho US tour was the second tour of the Drones era, taking place in May of 2015. The tours combined are sometimes reffered to simply as "Psycho Tour". The US tour consisted of four gigs. One was a festival performance, another one was a semi-promotional performance at the iHeartRadio Album Release Party and other two were medium-sized theatre gigs. The tour was first announced by the official Muse Twitter account on April 20th, 2015.[1]

Support Bands

For the Webster Hall gig, Bear Hands opened for Muse. Plague Vendor opened for the band at the Mayan Theatre. As the KROQ gig was part of a festival, eight acts played before Muse, including Of Monsters And Men, Awolnation and Panic! At The Disco. No opening acts were present at the iHeartRadio gig.

Stage Design and Production

As the tour was small, the stage set up was kept very simple and minimalistic. Apart from the KROQ gig, no backdrops or LED screens were used. Light shows were kept relatively simple too.

Morgan's light-show station from The 2nd Law era returned for the tour, as did the silver upright piano.

The band got updated jumpsuits, which were all black as opposed to jumpsuits in the Psycho UK Tour having red accents on the sleeves. The jumpsuits also looked much lighter and airier.

Typical setlist

Two main setlists were present during the four gigs; a longer 16-song one and a shorter 10-song one.

Notes

  • The short setlist remained the same on both gigs (iHeartRadio Theater and KROQ Weenie Roast Y Fiesta)
  • On the longer setlist, Drill Sergeant was only played before Psycho at the Webster Hall gig.
  • On the longer setlist, Hyper Music was added to the setlist after Uprising as an additional song at the Mayan Theatre gig after fan requests from the crowd.
