General sale sale started on the 21st[1] at 09:00[3][4]. Tickets were limited to four per person, for both nights.[3] BBC Radio 1 broadcast a partial recording of the Seaside Rendezvous concerts.[8]

Planning

First rumoured in mid-July,[9] the South Devon newspaper Herald Express lent credence to the possibility of two early-September Teignmouth gigs on the 4th of August.[2] Permission was still being sought at that time,[2] though anecdotes from locals suggested that the concerts were thought likely to go ahead.[10][11] Support was gauged by the council through sending letters regarding the concerts to locals, culminating with a meeting inside Teignbridge council offices at 10:00am on the 17th.[12][13][14][15] Christopher Wolstenholme appealed for followers of musewire to turn up to the offices in support of the gigs[12][13][14] and the council allowed the concerts to go ahead, under the condition that the sound level does not exceed 84.1 decibels.[16]

Announcement

The concerts were announced on the Muse website the following day, collectively dubbed "A Seaside Rendezvous". Ticket price is the same as that of the rest of The Resistance tour, namely £37.50 without booking fee, through the Muse website, Ticketmaster, Gigs and Tours[1]/Seetickets[3][4] and an unspecified Teignmouth booking office. A limited number of tickets will be sold with coach transport through Gigs and Tours, from the following cities: Birmingham, Bristol, London, Manchester, Nottingham, Oxford and Southampton.[1]

It has been speculated that these twin gigs are what DJ Zane Lowe meant by his "surprise" in store for Muse fans.[17] This seems to have been the case, as he announced on his Tuesday 18th August programme that he would be supporting Muse as a DJ and that a partial recording of the concerts—along with "Muse at 10" (a pun on "News at 10")—would be broadcast on his Monday 7th of September programme. "Muse at 10" was a documentary celebrating the 10 years of Muse since debut album Showbiz was first released, on the 7th of September 1999 in France.[8]

Ticket sale

The first Muse pre-sale was from 09:00 on the 19th of August. This pre-sale was enforced by unique codes given to each member of the official Muse website. Only one order could be made and tickets were limited to four per order. This system prevented the vendors' websites from buckling and people were able to buy tickets for a long period after the pre-sale started. A second Muse pre-sale took place the following day, that time limited to members of the mailing list.[18] General sale caused Seetickets outage, which was still the case at 09:33,[19] but had ended by 09:37.[20]

Competitions

Multiple competitions for the event were held in various countries, including Austria[21] and Switzerland[22]. Competitions in Austria were held by FM4[22] and in Swizerland by 20 Minuten, 20 minutes, Couleur 3 and DRS 3.[21] A bid for eight pairs of tickets was held by The Helen Foundation, with the proceeds going towards charitable purposes.[21]

Preparation

As of the 31st of August, preparations are being made on the Den. Fences are being constructed around the Den's facilities to prevent damage from being caused by Muse fans during the concerts. The stage is being constructed on the south side of the Den and thus attendees will presumably view the concert from the north side of the field.
