The Drones festivals tour (Drones Tour 2015) unofficialy began on May 23rd, 2015, with the performance at Norwich's Earlham Park in UK, for Radio 1's Big Weekend festival, and officialy began on May 29th with the performance at Rockavaria Festival.

In a regular show Muse use black Hullabaloons during the end of Reapers when played live, as well as streamers and confetti during Mercy. Some shows also include fire blowers.

Dominic Howard on the tour shows: "The summer shows are pretty kind of raw and have dynamic lighting. It is not overblown. It is really kind of mean looking, I think."

First Gig Announcements

Muse have announced and confirmed their first gigs - Rockavaria Festival, Der Ring Festival and Rock In Vienna Festival - via Facebook on November 5th, 2014.


Rehearsals for the Drones festival tour took part in late April and were held in Air Studios, where Muse previously rehearsed for the Origin of Symmetry anniversary concerts at Reading and Leeds festivals, and where Muse also recorded Absolution and parts of The 2nd Law and Drones. The second part of rehearsals for the tour took part later, as shown on Tom's Twitter post.
