Rock Titans Muse to Embark on Massive Stadium Tour in 2013

LONDON, December 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

- Tickets to see the stadium-filling rock trio on sale as of 23 November

- Lead singer Matthew Bellamy predicts tour will be the group's "best…so far"

- Tickets available on fan-to-fan marketplace StubHub UK

Following the chart-topping success of their sixth studio album, The 2nd Law, rock titans Muse confirmed that they'll embark on a massive stadium tour in support of the release. Earlier this week, the trio announced a quartet of 2013 live dates in the UK, including stops in Coventry, Manchester and two shows at London's Emirates Stadium. Muse tickets officially went on sale at 9:30 AM GMT on 23 November.

As one of the live circuit's most attractive draws, these bombastic performers have prepped to please a fan base anticipating nothing short of a spectacular stage show. Speaking to CBS Local's KROQ, the visionary group went so far as to liken their forthcoming tour to Pink Floyd's outing for The Wall in 1979. "I think it's going to be our best tour so far," lead singer Matthew Bellamy told the station.

Muse are poised to reinforce their reputation for first-rate showmanship with this string of live shows. Speaking to KROQ, Bellamy and Co. roughly detailed the elaborate stage setup audiences can expect, which is set to include an inverted pyramid structure out of which they'll "blast out…and escape" to play their catalogue of hits. Fan-favourite songs include psychedelic space-rock tracks such as "Hysteria," "Supermassive Black Hole" and "New Born," among newer, popular offerings.

Soon after official tickets were released to the public, StubHub UK saw an influx of inventory on their fan-to-fan online ticketing marketplace. Music soothsayers are already predicting that the Muse tour will rank among the most popular of 2013.

StubHub, the largest secondary ticket marketplace in the US, officially launched in the UK in March 2012, allowing users to buy and sell tickets to the hottest music, sports and entertainment events. In a first for the industry, StubHub does not charge fans additional fees on top of the price they first see on the site. Live music fans can visit the site to view a comprehensive list of Muse tickets and tour dates from fellow fans.

Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions.

In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
