Muse set to headline Rock in Rio

10th Dec 2012

British rockers Muse are set to headline one of the biggest festivals in the world next year, it has been revealed.

The trio revealed through Twitter they will be headlining Rio de Janeiro's Rock in Rio 2013 festival on September 14.

Other artists who are appearing alongside the group at the event are Bruce Springsteen, Iron Maiden and Metallica.

The latest addition comes after the group previously announced appearances in Japan as well as a 2013 European tour.

Muse's lead singer Matt Bellamy promised that next year's European tour would be their best ever.

In October the singer told a US radio station: "I think it's going to be our best tour so far. It's like our version of The Wall. We've built this upside down pyramid structure which is full of video screens.

"Throughout the gig, it gradually comes down and consumes the band. So we end up eaten up by this pyramid thing, which is all very symbolic, of course. We blast out of it and escape.

"It's going to be a big experience. This is our Stonehenge tour!"
