British rock band, Muse, are known world-wide as one of the best live acts around and they more than proved why they have earned the title when they brought their 2nd Law Tour to Joe Louis Arena on Saturday night.
In their hour and fifty minute set, spanning 21 songs, the band presented an innovative light show complete with massive moving screens that was highlighted by the garage jam band feel that the trio has synchronized to perfection.
The set list spanned the band's entire career, reaching back to first single "Sunburn" and moving forward to current hit, "Madness" with vocalist, Matt Bellamy, donning video glasses that featured the song's lyrics.
The crowd exploded during hits like "Supermassive Black Hole," "Knights of Cydonia", "Time is Running Out" and "Uprising".
After exiting the stage, the band returned to find the massive crowd lit up as their fans waved their cell phones and lighters.
To the crowd's delight, Muse broke into their breakout U.S. hit, "Starlight" with Bellamy taking to the crowd, urging them to sing along.
The band closed things with their London Olympics theme song, "Survival".
Dead Sara vocalist, Emily Armstrong, has a powerful, versatile voice that can move from gentle crooning to a guttural wail in no time at all.
Their seven song set was highlighted by their closer, breakout hit, "Weatherman", a powerful wailer that demanded attention and had the crowd talking afterwards.
