Muse Announce 2023 North American ‘Will of the People Tour’

3rd October 2022 | Category: Concerts

Having released their newest album, Will of the People, Muse have announced the 2023 “Will of the People Tour.” Evanescence will accompany the band as a special guest.

The 20-date North American trek will begin in February in Chicago, Illinois, and Muse will definitely be travelling for a while. After a stop in Minneapolis, Muse will end the month in Austin, and they’ll follow a Texas jaunt with a brief stop in Columbus, Ohio, before continuing on to Toronto, Quebec City, and Montreal. The band will play New York and Philadelphia in the middle of March, then pick back up in Glendale, Arizona in April for a run along on the west coast.

Besides that, Muse have several dates remaining on their previously announced 2022-2023 tour, including North American stops in October and European stops in May and June. 

On 13 January 2022, Muse released the single “Won’t Stand Down”, which marked a return to the band’s heavier early sound. Muse’s ninth album, Will of the People, was released on August 26, 2022. 

The goal of the album, ever since ideas for it arose in late 2019, was that it would explore current events in the world. Since a lot has happened during these years, it, thematically, explores everything from Black Lives Matter protests, to the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdowns, to the 2021 Capitol riots, and much more.

According to Muse, “Will of the People was created in Los Angeles and London and is influenced by increasing uncertainty and instability in the world. A pandemic, new wars in Europe, massive protests & riots, an attempted insurrection, Western democracy wavering, rising authoritarianism, wildfires and natural disasters and the destabilisation of the global order all informed Will of the People. It has been a worrying and scary time for all of us as the Western empire and the natural world, which we have cradled us for so long are genuinely threatened. This album is a personal navigation through those fears and preparation for what comes next.”
