Hello everyone ^^
Here we are to show you one of the best concerts of our live.... Muse @ Dragon Stadium - Porto, Portugal.
June 10th, Muse returned to Portugal with The 2nd Law Tour!!!!
I don´t have words to describe what I felt, but hysteria comes close enough.
We arrived at the stadium at 2 p.m. and there was a crowd large enough to make us think that we were going to be far way from the stage. We were wrong, we got pretty close to the stage!!!
The day was kind to us because it was supposed to rain thou it didn't. And thank God, otherwise we were going to be soaked!!
WE ARE THE OCEAN open the concert. They are a punk band from U.K. They were nice, but we were just too excited and we wanted to Muse to show up already :)
At 9.45 p.m. the stage goes dark and the lady from the Unsustainable shows up on the screen, and that was the Intro to "Supremacy" and there was a lot of flames from the circle pits above the stage (and it was hot as hell).Next was "Supermassive Black Hole" and "Panic Station". In this song, Cristiano Ronaldo appears on screen, but also Angela Merkel who was booed by the crowd."Bliss" and "Resistance" followed and next was Animals. It was so theatrical. On the screen showed greedy mans and then one of them shows up on the stage throwing money to the crowd.

Next Chris and Dom do a little solo cover of "Dracula Mountain" by Lightning Bolt allowing Matt to place himself on the piano to play "Sunburn"."Interlude" + "Hysteria" played next and it was total hysteria!!Another theatrical moment with "Feeling Good". A girl is talking angrily on the fone while working and ends up killing herself with gasoline on the b-stage. A good metaphore for today's world price of fuels and the madness of our jobs."Follow me" it's a great song, but live.. My God it was superb. Matt's voice is amazing and chills went down my spine hearing it live.On "Liquid State" Chris takes over the vocals and he's so so good :) I'm sorry that we didn't have the chance to hear him sing "Save me" (one of my favorites!!).
"Madness" was total madness :) I really could careless what people say about this song and the dubstep and bla bla bla. It's a great song!! And the "I need to love" part gets me all the time.
And then we heard the chords of "The House of the Rising Sun" the intro to "Time is Running Out".
The next song was chosen by the Russian Roulette. Its was between "New Born" and "Stockholm Syndrome". "New Born" was the winner!! And the first part of the show was over.
They return to the b-stage and my favorite moment of the whole concert happens. Matt starts to sing "Unintended", one of my ultimate favorite. It was a teary, heartwarming performance. The crowd light up their fones. Speechless!!
Another heartwarming moment with "Guiding Light". Then in "Undisclosed Desires" Matt starts greeting the mass, picks up one of the many Portugal flags that people brought.
The first Encore of the night starts with "Unsustainable" and we could see Charles (the robot) on the stage!!
"Plug in Baby" was next, and it was one of the most screamy and jumpy moments :)
"Survival" played live is another treasure. So emotional!! So good!!
The second Encore starts with "Uprising" and on the screen appears a lot of Chris' and Dom's and Matt's. So cool!!
And the last song was "Starlight". I like this song but I hoped it was a different one ending this AWESOME show.
There is so much more to say about this concert!! It was transcendent, epic!!! Worth every penny.
WE were lucky to be there!!
See you around!!
