Muse kicked off its North American tour on Monday night (January 21st) in San Diego, giving U.S. fans their first glimpse of the spectacular stage show that the trio debuted last fall in Europe. The centerpiece is a giant, inverted pyramid made out of video screens, but drummer Dominic Howard told us there's more to the show than just that: "One of the main things I've noticed about the show, which we're really enjoying, is it's so much more interactive with the crowd. Matt (Bellamy, vocals/guitar) and Chris (Wolstenholme, bass) are definitely much more interactive with the crowd. And just the way the stage is designed kind of lends itself to those guys being very close to the crowd and, like I said, interacting with them. There's something that's much more personal, I suppose, about this particular stage and production."
Muse is touring behind its sixth album, The 2nd Law, which debuted at a career-high Number Two on the Billboard album chart when it arrived in October.
The British group plays the first of three Los Angeles shows on Wednesday night (January 23rd) at the Staples Center.
