Absolution Tour


This DVD features most of Muse at the Glastonbury 2004 Festival, along with some other performances. To watch to the hidden footage, one must highlight and select the "x" in "Extras" on the extras menu.

The only songs missing from this gig on the DVD are Citizen Erased, Stockholm Syndrome and the Heartbreaker riff (previous to Time is Running Out). Citizen Erased was broadcast in real time on digital TV while Stockholm Syndrome and Heartbreaker Riff along with Blackout were broadcast on BBC2.

This was also the DVD that came in the American special edition of Black Holes and Revelations.

The music in the main menu is the riff played before Butterflies & Hurricanes, which has now been dubbed the Glastonbury riff.

The DVD can be streamed online from the official Muse website. These videos were decoded from an Australian promotional DVD-R.

Technical details

The audio is in 48kHz 16-bit stereo LPCM, as opposed to Dolby AC-3. The actual track order has Fury and The Groove in the States before the Glastonbury footage.[2]

The best compression using FLAC 1.2 can be obtained with --lax -l 32 -b 4096 -m -e -r 12.
