Muse at the Sprint Center

British rock band Muse is nothing if not ambitious. The band’s two heralded sound comparisons — Radiohead and Queen — place Muse squarely in commercially explosive territory (as already evidenced by the band’s opening slot for U2, in addition to several hit records, most recently with 2009’s Resistance). They’re also really into bombastic, Orwell-type narratives, and launched a treasure hunt in 2009 that stretched from New York to Dubai. And, given the recent reviews of the band at Coachella, they dig laser lights. The English band will be dialing their live show to 11 — visually and sonically — at the Sprint Center on November 2, with slick modern electro-rock band Metric opening.
