    As much as I love Muse, being one of my four favourite bands of all time, I have to say I was dissapointed with the Resistance.

    They are tempting, but would be a whole lot more appealing if they weren't so ridiculously priced. There's no way in hell you'll catch me paying 3 pounds for ONE bauble.

    Yeh the tickets cover the sets and stuff but to make any profit at all they need to sell merch. Thats how bands work nowadays.
    Muse need to either get on with the album or tour the UK more, none of this pissing around in Aus with snakes and koalas ****

    Really? Wembley Stadium has a capacity of 75,000 to 90,000 seated and 15,000 standing for concerts (according to Wikipedia). Let's prudently assume a total capacity of 90,000, given the seating at the back of the stage wasn't used for Muse. Let's also prudently assume a ticket value of £40, excluding booking fees. A sell-out (which Muse achieved) for two gigs would generate £7.2m.

    Maybe with all the staff costs, construction costs, transportation costs, hosting fees etc. the total for the whole stadium tour would far exceed £7.2m, but they sold out a lot of other stadiums as well.

    And lest we forget, Matt has to keep his farm going; he's hardly going to go too crazy on his set when his prized ducks could be feasting on some premium quality handmade bread rather than Tesco Value ****e.
