Muse: We will play UK gig for 20th

Muse hope to celebrate their 20th anniversary with a UK gig

Muse have said they are sure they will be playing a UK gig to mark their 20th year as a band next year.

Speaking at the World War Z premiere, which includes music from their new album and was followed by a gig in St James Park, Muse said they hoped to mark the milestone with something special.

Singer Matt Bellamy said: "We're not sure, we've been thinking about it. I'm sure we're going to play in the UK somehow, somewhere.

"It might be some little gig or a festival or something, but we're going to try and come up with an idea for that, yeah."

Drummer Dominic Howard added: "We definitely want to do something special."

The band's music is featured in Brad Pitt's zombie movie World War Z and Matt explained how the collaboration came about.

He said: "We were making our album and I was actually reading the book World War Z and I loved the book.

"The coincidence was that they got in touch with us to get involved with the scoring of the film and we weren't available because we were making the album. Part of the album had a bit of an influence from the book anyway.

"A few months later when they started filming they got in touch with us and said they'd love to listen to the album and see if it went in the direction they were looking for. There were two songs that stood out, one in particular Isolated System, which they've used throughout the entire film."

Isolated System is on Muse's sixth studio album, The 2nd Law, out now.
