On the 30th of June Muse hosted an invite-only concert at the Gloria Theater in Germany, a venue that generally accommodates a little under 600 people. This highly anticipated concert was undoubtedly a BIG event for all Muse fans, especially since Muse’s last gig there dates back to 2003! The lucky few who attended the concert were winners of a competition organized by Deezer with Orange.
“One of my biggest dreams just came true thanks to Deezer. To be able to see Muse in the flesh and in such an intimate environment only happens once in a lifetime, if not at all. I didn’t want it to stop.” – Amandine, Deezer winner
2:00pm: The fans are already gathering in front of the concert hall in a bid to get dibs on the front row (the concert hall’s front row is less than a meter away from the band). The order of arrival number has been scrupulously scribbled onto their hands so as not to get their spot nabbed.
6pm: Get together with the band for an interview, which will be available soon! 7:30pm: the doors open, the fans bolt towards the first row. 8:30pm: The opening act Royal Blood: Ben Thatcher and Mike Kerr enter the stage to perform and get the audience revved up.
“Amazing band! I had vaguely heard of them but had never seen them live. The singer was staying in our hotel, so we took a picture with him!! Both concerts were perfect.” – Florine
9:00pm: The four lucky winners of the Meet & Greet head backstage to meet the band.
Monika, Silvère, Camille and Daniela with Muse
“Who would have thought that writing a quick comment on Facebook would get me to Cologne to see Muse play in such an intimate venue AND that I would actually get to meet them? I didn’t think it possible… But Deezer did it! Being able to chat with the band was an opportunity of a lifetime. A great stay and an incredible experience… Thanks Deezer!” – Camille, Winner of the Meet & Greet with Muse
10pm: The crowd is whipped up into a frenzy! Muse appears, they perform their greatest hits one after the other, and offer a few exclusive tracks to attentive ears.
“We’ve never seen Muse play in such a small concert hall! It creates a real bond between the band and the audience! The setlist was perfect with the unexpected Assassin and Fury! There was a great vibe, everyone was really excited, we could even feel the boards bending under our feet!” – Noémie
“When Muse arrived on stage with Psycho the crowd went mental. The concert was spectacular carried by Matt’s legendary talent and precision. To cut a long story short: an unforgettable evening led by two amazing bands.” – Jean-Baptiste
