    roadies all wear suits and hats For main set closer Will There Be Enough Water Jack White took center stage once again and shared lead vocals with Alison Jack Lawrence took over the skins and Dean Fertita played a mellow Fender Rhodes esque piano White did a great guitar solo and got so into it that he knocked over one of Dean s guitars The stage hands rushed out quickly to pick it up Towards the end of the song Jack and Alison kept singing Just because you caught me does that make it a sin far away from the microphone their powerful voices carrying over the venue without amplification at least for us in the front It was a magical moment Dean kept rocking the keyboard stand back and forth in beat with the music The encore featured what may have been the coolest guitar solo I ve ever heard live Accompanied by the drum machine once again they played the new song I Can t Hear You with Jack on guitar The solo was just amazing Jack was using his Whammy pedal to alternately raise and lower the pitch of the notes during the solo He is truly the master and inventor of this technique but I ve never heard him go back and forth in pitch so much before With The White Stripes he usually just raises the pitch an octave and leaves it there but this was something completely different The last song of the night was Treat Me Like Your Mother and the entire audience was jumping up and down It was just so much fun and I couldn t stop smiling As the band was thanking the audience I locked eyes with Jack and gave him a thumbs up After the concert I had to go buy a Dead Weather shirt mainly to have something to change in to since my t shirt got completely soaked during the concert We hung out in the bar having some beers after the show and then we actually went outside and met the band as they were leaving Jack and Alison both signed CD covers that I had brought and they were both very nice Jack said I see we have a lot of Americans here commenting on the fact that three out of the six fans there were from the States I told Alison that I really enjoyed the show and she said thank you and seemed genuinely happy to hear it The only bummer was that neither one wanted to pose for a quick picture But that s alright it was still one of the best concerts of the year and I finally got to meet Jack White briefly Setlist I m not sure about the songs in parenthesis Start 20 35 01 60

links in the setlist Last night I saw Muse for the first time and it was all that I had hoped for The concert started with Exogenesis Symphony Part 1 from new album The Resistance Guitarist vocalist Matthew Bellamy drummer Dominic Howard and bassist Christopher Wolstenholme each stood on platforms that rose out of the stage floor and proceeded to play the first three songs 30 feet above the audience The sides of the platforms were covered in video screens which displayed images of the band interspersed with various animations The second song Uprising sounded great in a live setting Whenever I go see a band their latest album ALWAYS becomes much better after hearing it live and the same thing happened last night Even the Timbaland flavored Undisclosed Desires with Matt on keytar was fun to hear live I kept hoping they would use lasers in their show just like on the last tour and I was certainly not disappointed During New Born green lasers were projecting all over the arena very cool Matt even had a laser on top of his platform for the first song that he could control the direction of himself Map of the Problematique was one of the highlights for me and I really liked the little Who Knows Who Heartbreaker jam at the end Supermassive Black Hole and Starlight were also really great Black Holes and Revelations is probably my second favorite Muse album after Origin of Symmetry Speaking of the latter I was so happy when they played Plug In Baby Man that song is fantastic and Matt s siren like guitar intro is so cool He is a true musical genious They definitely could have done a few more songs from Origin of Symmetry Before Hysteria Matt got a short break while Chris and Dominic played a really cool interlude up on Dominic s platform while the entire drumkit rotated I really enjoyed that they played two songs from their first album Showbiz Cave and Unintended For Cave Matt played a grand piano that had lights in the open lid that responded to his playing Before they started Cave Matt did mention that they played their first show in Sweden in the
