TVD Live Shots: Muse,
30 Seconds to Mars,
and PVRIS at Shoreline Amphitheatre, 9/15

English rockers Muse took the Bay Area by storm with a super-sold-out show at Mountain View’s Shoreline Amphitheatre along with supporting acts Thirty Seconds to Mars and PVRIS.

Clearly aware of what Muse had in store, both PVRIS and Thirty Seconds to Mars brought their A-games. While PVRIS’ Lynn Gunn left an impression on the gathering throngs, 3STM’s Jared Leto was absolutely brilliant, traipsing up into the seats during the first song and wowing the Shoreline audience with a set that could have easily filled a headlining slot.

But the crowd that packed the Shoreline was clearly there for Muse and as their set time approached, the entire amphitheater was on its feet from the front row to the very back of the general admission lawn. Finally the band took the stage, the drum riser sliding out from the shadows as the band launched into “Dig Down” in the dark with frontman/guitarist Matt Bellamy only lit by the lights affixed to his guitar and glasses.

With the stage backed by giant LED blocks that occasionally shifted forward and back, Muse put on a show that was both sonically and visually stunning. What makes it more impressive is the amount of sound coming out of four guys (including Morgan Nicholls hiding in the shadows behind the drum kit).

While Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard seemed content to hold things down on bass and drums, respectively, Matt Bellamy roamed free, somehow nailing his vocals while absolutely shredding on guitar and putting on a show like none other. That’s why Muse is able to pack venues to the rafters.
