TOM MORELLO ANNOUNCED AS VERY SPECIAL GUEST FOR UK DATES
TOUR IN SUPPORT OF NEW ALBUM SIMULATION THEORY OUT NOW ON WARNER BROS. RECORDS
March 6th, 2019 - Multi-platinum, BRIT and Grammy Award-winning rock icons Muse kicked off their Simulation Theory World Tour last month and have performed huge shows in Houston, Dallas, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Las Vegas and San Diego.
Today the band have announced that they will be joined by very special guest, guitar legend and co-founder of Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave and Prophets Of Rage Tom Morello on their UK dates. These shows will also see Muse headline their first ever stadium show in the West Country at Bristol Ashton Gate Stadium as well as London Stadium and Manchester Etihad Stadium this summer.
Tom Morello is living proof of the transformative power of rock’n’roll and released his latest collaborative album ‘The Atlas Underground’ last October. The album marked Morello’s most ambitious artistic effort of his storied career and left critics raving with Rolling Stone praising, “A rap-rock/EDM throwdown… and the results are explosive,” LA Weekly lauds, “a cohesive piece of work that sounds fresh and new." Following his own headline tour in May he will join the band on all three of their UK shows this June.
