Manchester Heaton Park 2001 (gig)

|Date||24th June 2001|
|Abbex Road Studios||←||Heaton Park||→||Zénith|
The entire event spanned 14:00 to 16:00. Unlike the previous year's performance, this one was live. Balloons were released at some point during the performance. After the event, those who listened were given a fortnight to vote which act they thought had been best. Muse came fifth out of the seven acts that performed that day, with eight percent of the votes.
Audio recordings of both tracks, presumably from a BBC Radio 1 broadcast, can be obtained here[registration needed].
|After New Born||Howard||"Thank you!"|
|Before Plug In Baby||Bellamy||"Hey you crazy cats!"|
BBC on the performance
Muse took to the stage and got a huge welcome from the Manchester crowd - even all those there for Wyclef and Usher. A big cheer went up when the band launched into favourite 'Plug In Baby' - and current track 'Newborn' [sic] went down well too! Maybe it's because the inflatable blow up balls were released half way through!
