    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.
    You do make a good point but that set must have cost a hell of alot of money as it was made exclusively for them just for that tour of stadium dates. Not only would they have had to pay for labour costs and raw materials for the other shows they would have had to get the whole set driven in peices all over europe. I can imagine their stadum gigs costing a few million each easily. Granted maybe Muse can make a profit from their gig tickets alone but thats because they're a huge band and they were playing stadiums. Their album tour tickets were only about £25 if I remember correctly and they had just as complex stage set

    I think they have a few identical sets to cut down on the transportation costs, and so they have time to build the things. Could be wrong, though.

    I have no idea how much these kind of things costs so I'm not going to further speculate. Given the number of dates they will have taken in tens of millions of pounds though, which I reckon would cover costs. BUT I do agree, the merch is a very easy sell and the hefty profit margin on each item will bring in a hell of a lot of their overall profit.

    IIRC, the album tour tickets were only very slightly cheaper than the stadium shows.

    I read an interview recently where they said that their set was coming by boat to Australia!

    One of the many muse related fan pages on facebook posted it.
    I hate tabloids but occasionally get really bored and read the daily mail celebrity stories. I stay away from anything non celeb related otherwise I would turn into the hulk
