Muse has been on tour for most of the year, but last night's show at the Zepp in Tokyo was one of the highlights so far. Drummer Dominic Howard enthused on Twitter that it was the "funniest gig I've ever played." But there is no need to feel disappointed that you missed this exciting show: Apparently, it was filmed for a future release.
Video director Tom Kirk took to Twitter to tease a possible new DVD or other release for the band. He first said, "Tomorrow is another day. Also tomorrow might be one of the most amazing Muse shows of all time. What is it about Japan?" He then revealed that this "ridiculously good gig" was filmed and we may get to see it soon:

These promises of a new live film are not unlikely: Tom Kirk has already worked with Muse on two of their live DVDs, producing both the Hullabaloo: Live At Le Zenith, Paris and Absolution Tour DVDs in the mid-2000s. He also directed a number of Muse's music videos, such as those for "Time Is Running Out," "Supermassive Black Hole," and both "Unsustainable" and "Isolated System" of the 2nd Law suite. This anticipated film would be the first since the band's 2008 DVD, HAARP.
Muse frontman Matt Bellamy has also tweeted an intriguing message regarding the Tokyo show as well as a 20th anniversary event expected in 2014:
Hey, relax; that's was just a rehearsal for our 20 year anniversary tour!

The veteran band certainly have some tricks up their sleeve. While we wait for this Tokyo concert DVD and Muse's 20th anniversary tour, catch the band in a city near you as they finish up this year's extensive list of shows - they still have one last performance in Asia before returning to North America, South America, and finally Australia. You can find tickets on their official site.
