Second of the two Coachella Festival 2014 shows. Last gig of 2014 and last gig of The 2nd Law era.


Announced in January of 2014, Muse were headlining night two of both weekends at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival 2014. Other headliners were OutKast and Arcade Fire.

The set was shortened due to Matt's voice still in rusty condition from his bout of Laryngitis. Lithium was on the setlist, but not played. It was replaced with a 5-6 minute riffage outro to Stockholm Syndrome. Uprising was played with Matt and Chris elevated in the air on movable podium cranes again.

After the series of riffs Matt threw his guitar several times and ended up balancing on the top of his Dickinson Amp with the guitar lying underneath the amp.

Seven songs aired on AXSTV. The songs shown were: Hysteria, Bliss, Animals, Unsustainable, Time Is Running Out, Uprising, and Survival.

Last performance of Survival to date and the final performance of Animals with the actor and the "Muso" confetti. Last performance of Isolated System in it's full length.
