Muse Claim They May Not Play ‘Origin’ Live After Reading & Leeds

The 2001 album is coming up for its tenth anniversary.

In a recent interview, published this week in NME, Muse have claimed that whilst they’ll probably play some of their album ‘Origin Of Symmetry’ at Reading & Leeds Festival, it may well be the last time time parts of it get an airing.

As announced yesterday, they’ll be headlining the festival this year alongside My Chemical Romance and The Strokes.

Speaking of the 2001 album, coming up for its tenth anniversary, frontman Matt Bellamy revealed: ‘It’s probably the last time some of these songs will ever be played live again.’

He went on to say the band will be ‘drawing a line under one phase of our career.’

‘It was on the second album [‘Origin…’] that things really started happening for the band, and when we focused on the live side of things much more. So it’ll be like coming full circle: we’ve gone off on one a little bit, and now it feels like the right time to pull it back and remind ourselves of what we were doing 10 years ago.’

Tickets for Reading & Leeds went on sale yesterday evening, and there are still a few available. Pick them up here: Reading Festival Tickets | Leeds Festival Tickets
