As Muse fans lucky enough to attend their concert will tell you, it's one of the best bands you can see live. Performing at Austin City Limits on Friday, Matthew Bellamy and the rest of Muse rocked the venue down. In front of massive screens and a highly entertaining light show, Muse jumped, rocked and raged for the crowd. At around the fifteen minute mark of the hour-and-a-half long performance, Bellamy shredded "The Star-Spangled Banner" on his guitar. Also amusing were the animated politicians - which included Obama in an Uncle Sam outfit - dancing across the onstage screens.
Muse fans saw live renditions of tracks from their 2006 breakthrough album Blackholes And Revelations, as well as hits from the more recent The Resistance and The 2nd Law.
