Muse, Thirty Seconds To Mars + PVRIS at Red Rocks: Another Stellar Lineup
This year at Red Rocks has to be the one for well-matched trios of bands playing together. In September, Muse returned to Denver’s favorite venue after a 10-year absence with a very, very, very sold-out show that also included Thirty Seconds To Mars and PVRIS. I had never seen Jared Leto and his bandmates in action before, and they were a sight to behold. But more importantly, I was super impressed with his voice. Another lovely voice that night was Lynn Gunn of PVRIS (pronounced Paris – I know, I don’t get it either). While the crowd was definitely there for the other bands, those guys definitely held their own.
I had seen Muse once before – in a bigger production set – but they aptly scaled their high-intensity lights and graphics for the comparatively smaller stage at Red Rocks. And just like Thirty Seconds to Mars, Muse sounded incredible.
Muse is a British rock band that formed in 1994. Their music is characterized by a blend of alternative rock, progressive rock, and electronic influences, with a focus on powerful vocals, elaborate instrumentation, and dramatic stage performances. The band’s members include lead vocalist and guitarist Matthew Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and drummer Dominic Howard. Muse has released several successful albums, including “Origin of Symmetry,” “Absolution,” “Black Holes and Revelations,” and “The Resistance,” – and their music has earned them a dedicated fan base around the world.
That fan base showed up en masse for their Red Rocks show and willing to sing along all night!
