Pulled Apart By Horses have revealed they were personally invited to support Muse on their upcoming UK Tour.

The band are set to open for the Devon group when they play Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester on September 4.

In an interview with Gigwise, Pulled Apart By Horses' guitarist James Brown said drummer Dominic Howard asked them to support.

“It's nice when things like that happen as there's so much cynicism in the music industry and it looks like he heard the album and is a genuine fan,” he said.

Brown admitted that he was nervous about the show, which will attract a crowd of around 50,000 people.

“I’ve seen shots of their stage set up and it's enormous,” he said. “I think we're going to have to get our guitar tech a golf buggy to get from one side of the stage to the other.”

Muse are also set to play two dates at London's Wembley Stadium as part of their UK dates.
