Chris celebrated his 40th birthday at the Royal Albert Hall, where the medley was first played.

The metal medley is a medley of Muse's heavier songs, played at the end of the main setlist. Some songs are shortened to 1-2 minutes in length, while others are only played as guitar riffs.

The songs are likely picked due to sharing a Drop D guitar tuning.

After being hinted at during interviews, it made its first appearance in 2018 at the Royal Albert Hall.

Medley songs

The following Muse songs formed the medley at Royal Albert Hall:

  • Stockholm Syndrome: The intro through to first verse are played, then it skips to the pre-chorus riff. The chorus leads straight into the guitar solo, skipping the third verse. The final chorus and outro are played.
  • Assassin: Only the riffs leading up to the first verse are played.
  • Reapers: Played as usual until the first pre-chorus riff, then it skips to the guitar solo. Everything after the guitar solo is skipped.
  • The Handler: Played as usual until the first post-chorus, then it skips to the final few seconds of the outro.
  • Dead Star: Played as usual until the first post-chorus riff, then it skips to Micro Cuts.
  • New Born: Played as usual during the intro, with Morgan on piano. The intro riff leads straight to the guitar solo, followed by the final chorus and outro. The second and third verses are both skipped.
  • Agitated: A slower version of the outro riff was played after New Born at the Royal Albert Hall, concluding the medley and the main set.
