Earlier this week, we told you that Muse were set to release a video for new single Revolt this week. However, the release of this video seems to have been put on the shelf following the announcement of 2016′s Drones World Tour. Only a handful of shows have been announced so far, but the band have also shed light on the production which will accompany each date.
The tour, which will commence on 5 April in Dublin, will see Matt Bellamy and co. perform “in the round”. According to Muse’s own website, the stage will be placed in the middle of the arena to make for a 360 degree experience. This is in a similair vein to what U2 did a few years back, a tour which Muse also supported them on.
In an interview with BBC Radio 2, Bellamy explained that the production will be their most elaborate yet. “There will be lots of flying things, and real military drones” explained the frontman. As of today, the following 10 shows have been announced:
5 April | Dublin, Ireland | 3Arena Dublin
8 April | Manchester, England | Manchester Arena
11 April | London, England | The O2
12 April | London, England | The O2
17 April | Glasgow, Scotland | SSE Hydro
2 May | Lisbon, Portugal | MEO Arena
5 May | Madrid, Spain | Barclaycard Center
14 May | Milan, Italy | Mediolarum Forum
15 May | Milan, Italy | Mediolarum Forum

More shows will be announced soon for fans in Germany, Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Canada and the United States of America. For information about special fan pre-sales, click here.
