Today Muse announced that they have added more cities to the North American leg of their Drones Tour in support of their critically and commercially acclaimed album Drones.


DronesThe Drones World Tour will see band, who just completed a spectacular Summer European Festival run which garnered some of the best reviews of their career, perform for the first time “in the round” from the middle of the arena. The band is known for pushing boundaries with their stage production and the Drones World Tour will be no exception. This latest stage design and configuration will give fans a true 360 degree audio/visual sensory experience, reminding everyone why Muse’s tours have been described by the international press and audiences alike as “epic,” “amazing,” and “ambitious.”


In select markets the band will be supported by X Ambassadors (X) and in other select markets Phantogram (P).
