Muse ended their UK Psycho tour with an epic show at Brighton Dome last night (Monday 23 March), performing new single 'Dead Inside' for the first time. See footage, photos and the setlist below.
To launch their upcoming album Drones, the stadium-filling trio have been touring more intimate UK venues with support from Marmozets. The tour came to an end at Brighton Dome last night, following the band's world premiere of lead single 'Dead Inside'.
We were there, and trust us when we say it was pretty special. Check out eight things we learned from the show and the tour here.
After opening with the circle-pit inspiring rock rush of 'Psycho', frontman Matt Bellamy humbly told the hollering crowd: "I don't know if you heard me bumbling on the radio earlier on, but we're about to play a brand new song" - before bursting into 'Dead Inside'.
In a similar pop vein to 'Madness' and 'Undisclosed Desires', the track bubbles along with a sweet and infectious yearning, while live the rockier elements, soaring crescendo and piercing, punctuating arena drums leave us in no doubt that this is will soon be a favourite in their set, let alone an epic album opener.

Elsewhere in the set, Muse payed tribute to Brighton, with Bellamy telling of how the band lived there in Winston Churchill's old house for the making of Absolution, where things "got a bit weird." They again dropped new track 'Reapers', as well as b-side 'The Groove' and early Showbiz single 'Uno'.
It was a rare privilege and pleasure to see Muse destroy such a small hall before Download Festival and an imminent arena tour surely beckon.
