Muse at London’s O2 Arena: timings, potential setlist and everything you need to know

When Muse come to town, they’re out to blow your freakin’ mind. Spaceships, drones, lasers, pyrotechnics: you name it, a Muse show has it. Matt Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard have a rep for being an absolutely unmissable live act.

Plus, Muse have more than their fair share of thumping tunes. From ‘Knights of Cydonia’ and ‘Hysteria’ to ‘Starlight’ and ‘Plug In Baby’, the Devon trio have pumped out dozens of bangers over nearly three decades.

As Muse fans will no doubt already be well aware, the band are in London for not one but two dates at the massive O2 Arena in Greenwich. The shows are part of the 90-date ‘Will of the People’ world tour and are the trio’s first London gigs since two tiny dates at the Eventim Apollo back in May 2022. Here’s everything you need to know about the shows, from doors and support slots to ticket availability.
