Muse's Matt Bellamy claims the band's upcoming live shows will be the best they have ever performed - and compared the band's new tour to Pink Floyd.

The 'Madness' singer spoke of the band's next tour while promoting The 2nd Law in the US, after the album topped the UK charts last week. He also gave fans an insight of what to expect from their spectacular-sounding new live show.

"I think it’s going to be our best tour so far. It’s like our version of The Wall," Bellamy told US radio station KROQ. We’ve built this upside down pyramid structure which is full of video screens. Throughout the gig, it gradually comes down and consumes the band. So we end up eaten up by this pyramid thing, which is all very symbolic, of course. We blast out of it and escape.

"It’s going to be a big experience. This is our Stonehenge tour!"

Muse bring their live shows to the UK at the end of October, when they kick off the UK leg of their world tour in Glasgow on 24 October, 2012. They then play dates in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Ireland, their last UK show this year taking place at Dublin's O2 on 3 November 2012.

Tickets for the shows are on sale now. For more information visit Gigwise Gig Tickets.
