MUSE - hometown gig

A chance meeting with MUSE lead singer Matt Bellamy by Terry Falcão (one of my councillor colleagues), last year has led to the band agreeing to do a hometown gig, to take place on the Den (a grass area by the seafront of their home town of Teignmouth). The rock trio, renowned for their spectacular live shows, are set to hold two concerts on the Den in September. Major concert promoter SJM Concerts Ltd has applied to Teignbridge Council for the premises licence for the two nights, for up to 15,000 people. The concerts will take place before Matt Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard embark on a 10-week tour of America and Europe. Concerns have been raised by police over traffic and noise levels. However I believe we can thrash out matters so the group can perform work from their new album, ‘The Resistance’. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
