A short little tour Muse did at the end of 2018, and begining of 2019 in support of their newly released album Simulation Theory.

The tour consisted of TV show appearances, a few small gigs, few festivals in United States, and two bigger performances, one in Royal Albert Hall in London and another one at San Mames stadium in Bilbao, Spain.


New songs that got their live debut on the tour: Dig Down (Acoustic Gospel Version), The Dark Side, Something Human, Pressure, Algorithm & Break It to Me.

New covers and jams also got their live debut: Hungry Like the Wolf (Duran Duran cover), the Smashing Pumpkins Jam, and the Metal medley.

As of the Brooklyn performance, Matt was equipped with new LED light-up shades and a special LED jacket, and Morgan's got a cap.

Average Setlist


  • Before the release of Simulation Theory, Dig Down was still played (until the Bilbao gig), then it was dropped. Algorithm and Break It to Me made they live debut at the Royal Albert Hall gig. The same gig where the Metal medley was played for the first time.
