Muse announce intimate UK benefit show where fans will choose the setlist

The trio are swapping stadiums for an intimate venue for one special night

Rich Cooper

They play stadiums around the world to thousands of fans, but on Saturday 19 August, Muse will be taking to the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.

The rockers will be playing a charity show ahead of their massive headline slots at Reading and Leeds, raising money for The Passage, a charity and resource centre for homeless people in London.

The special concert will be a ‘By Request’ show, where fans can choose the songs that make it onto the setlist for the evening.

Ticket holders can choose up to ten songs to be submitted; the votes will be collated and used to create the very special setlist for the evening’s concert. A perfect opportunity to try and squeeze a few rarities out of a band coming up on their 20th anniversary.

Singer and guitarist Matt Bellamy said: “We have admired The Passage’s work for a while now. Their work is vital to the community in London. We are looking forward to doing our bit to help the amazing staff and volunteers and the homeless people who benefit from their tireless hard work.”

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 6 July, while Muse fan club members, along with Reading and Leeds ticket holders, can access an exclusive presale two days before.

This is gonna be one hell of a night.
