No rock star theatrics, just Muse

Call it Hysteria, call it Madness. English rock powerhouse trio Muse set the stage ablaze yesterday, playing to an energetic crowd at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Frontman Matt Bellamy, bassist Christopher Wolstenholme and drummer Dominic Howard, who were last here in 2010, did not bother with scream-worthy rock star theatrics and tricks. Instead, they worked the crowd as soon as they stepped on stage and simply delivered just what the fans wanted - a steady mix of tunes old and new, kicking off with Psycho. Muse were here to promote their latest album Drones.
