On a day where two million bikers were to converge upon Washington D.C. in memory of 9/11, thousands of music fans crammed into the Verizon Center to watch a mesmerizing performance by Muse on Wednesday night. Cage the Elephant opened the show with a strong, high-energy set.
Touring on their fourth consecutive #1 smash, “The 2nd Law,” Muse are known to deliver an over-the-top live show. Featuring an expansive stage with a five-tiered pyramid of video panels that dynamically align into various positions during the show, the English trio gave a jaw-dropping audio-visual extravaganza that was equally impressive from any angle. Matthew Bellamy played the Star Spangled Banner on guitar after the second song in tribute to 9/11 that induced goosebumps.
We were limited to the first three songs for a photo review with no ticket, so flip through the gallery to see why this is a must-see event.
Pre-order Cage the Elephant’s forthcoming album, “Melophobia,” due out October 8.
