It’s hard to argue that there is a better three piece live band out there than Muse. They’ve dominated stadiums for a decade, putting on some of the most incredible shows down to their innovative visuals and teeth shattering sounds.

In April, the superstar rockers made some history, playing to a record-breaking crowd at the O2 Arena in London. On Friday 15th April the band played to a whopping 21,000 fans, the highest capacity ever at the venue.

The O2 looked better than ever, thanks to an innovative stage design which saw a huge immersive audio-visual sensory experience for onlookers. The stage was smack-bang in the middle of the arena, with a surrounding standing audience. Entitled “Drones World Tour”, giant blimp-like drones were used during the show, floating above the audience. However, the innovative concept became all too real when a drone crashed into the crowd at one of their London shows. Luckily, no one was injured and the object was quickly removed from the arena.

The band were awarded for their record-breaking attendance with a specially commissioned illustration to mark the brand becoming the first ever act to achieve such an outstanding crowd. What’s more, to celebrate the record, O2 captured a 360° photo of all rockers who attended using gigapixel technology. This is the first time in history that this technology has been used at the venue, capturing a huge 600 images of the arena in under 10 minutes. The multi-billion pixel image of the crowd allows Muse fans to zoom in, find Where’s Wally essentially and get that selfie from what must have been a very special night.
