A short radio promo gig in support of The 2nd Law.


First Muse performance for BBC's Live Lounge.

Muse performed a Live Session 'special', recorded on the 28th of September[1][4] and broadcast later the same day on BBC Radio 1.[5][6]

10 pairs of tickets were distributed through a lottery by the BBC.[5][6]

Matt's white upright piano was present on the set but it was not used for any song. It's possible that the band were set to play a piano song, such as Explorers, but decided against it for unknown reasons.


After Madness Bellamy "Cheers".[2]
Before Sign o' the Tmes "We're gonna play like a weird cover song now. Prince".[2]
After Sign o' the Times Sara Cox "You're listening to BBC Radio 1, to Muse's Live Lounge. That was a cover of Prince's 'Sign of the Times'. Final one from them now. This is so good".[2]
After Starlight Bellamy "Cheers!"[2]
