Description

Playing at the same time as Skrillex, Nas, Pet Shop Boys and the Dismemberment Plan, Muse was the Coachella headliner that had the misfortune of playing against numerous other palatable options on Saturday night (Apr. 12). Those who committed to the main stage were treated to a typically soaring performance from the symphonic rock troupe, who ticked off the hits upon opening with "Stockholm Syndrome" and ending with a rapturous version of "Knights of Cydonia." In between, frontman Matt Bellamy wagged his shagging hair and shrugged off the sandstorm that had plagued Pharrell Williams' voice an hour earlier ("What can you expect? We're in the desert," Bellamy told the crowd). The singer let his guitar screech during the "Madness" solo and then tossed the instrument like a javelin a few songs later. "Starlight" found Bellamy hopping offstage to high-five the members of the front row, and on "Uprising," he pumped his fist with a rebellious spirit. The many visual pyrotechnics that Muse brings to its live show -- the lasers, neon lights, flashing slogans and grandiose videos -- were in full effect at Coachella, but the spryness of Bellamy's performance was more memorable than the technical details.
