I would say they do, yup.

I wasn't a huge fan of the new album, mostly the whole concept style of it, but seeing it live translated into a show made it much, much better

I thought muse were great. after years of going to their concerts (in the early days of course!) I stopped after Black Holes album so I was excited to see them again.

personally I found the energy a little flat, like they were going through the motions or they were tired? plus the crowd didn't really dance!? like subdued?

That muse song that's a rip off of I want to break free by queen makes me chuckle.

It looked quite lively looking down from where we were, few mosh pits even. I think being so far back and able to actually view the whole spectacle of the set up grabbed more of the attention than the atmosphere though.
