A special festival gig as part of the annual Big Dance Concert Series organised by NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association). The 2013 edition was sponsored by Coke Zero and Capital One Bank.


Announced on March 7th 2013, Muse were headlining the 2013 Big Dance Concert Series for the NCAA Men's College Basketball Final Four.

During Madness, Matt accidentally changed lyrics in the verse and sung "And I, have finally realized what you fucking need"

During Follow Me there were some technical problems with the sound system blowing right in the midde of the song. The band had to stop playing it and went straight to the next song.(watch)

During the outro of Uprising, Matt once again smashed his guitar and the Dickinson amp before finally throwing his guitar a few times against the big LED screen placed behind the band.

At the end of the gig, Matthew said, "Thank you Georgia, thank you Atlanta! We'll see you again in September", hinting at a future gig there later this year. Two days later, a gig was added there, taking place on September 4th, 2013 at Gwinett Arena.

The setlist featured 13 songs. The stage only used an LED screen behind the band and the LED drum riser. Later, for the Summer festival gigs (and The Unsustainable Tour outdoor stage), the band added the LED ground sphere behind the band, mimicking the spherical shape of the arena stage.


The concert was filmed and streamed live on the band's website. The full show can be seen here.
