Merchandise for the Psycho UK Tour

The Psycho UK tour started March 15th, 2015. It's named after the first announced song from the Drones album, Psycho. Muse have played various medium-sized venues around the UK during the course of the tour, in most of which, Muse haven't played at since the Origin of Symmetry tour. It was the smallest tour Muse have done in years.



Information

Allthough the tour was small and only lasted for a week, it featured many songs that Muse haven't played in many years (such as Assassin, Uno and Muscle Museum), as well as the premiere of Hullabaloons for the first time after The Resistance Tour and a live debut of Psycho, Reapers and Dead Inside.

Both Matt and Chris seemed to have wore the same outfits as they did in the Psycho lyric video, for each gig of the tour, while Dom wore a black sleeveless shirt.

Announcement

The tour was first announced by Matt Bellamy on Twitter on March 10th, 2015, and was later confirmed by Muse via Facebook on March 11th, 2015. To see the post, click here.

Typical setlist

The tour saw the regular playing of many rare songs from the previous tour as well as the return to setlists of songs which hadn't been played for years. Uno was played for the first time since 2003. Muscle Museum and Assassin were both played for the first time since 2007. According to Matt Bellamy, the setlists were based on Musers comments the band saw on Muse messageboards, about what songs they really want the band to play.
