Muse Aim For The Stars... Literally

(Gibson) It's safe to say that Muse have set their goals higher than any other band literally. Teignmouth Community College's finest have reportedly had "discussions and coherent conversations" about the band performing in outer space. The U.K. trio are hoping to hitch a ride with Virgin mogul Richard Branson's Galactic Flights.

Frontman Matthew Bellamy told The Sun, "We've had some discussions about playing in space. Sometimes very coherent conversations and sometimes very late at night, but it's for real. I'm thinking of approaching Richard Branson to see if we could do it on his spacecraft he's got happening."

Bellamy says the band would undoubtedly have to scale back their arena-worthy stage show: "We do have a lot of equipment, so I guess we'd have to use pods to carry our stuff and we'd scale back the shows a lot. I don't think the spacecraft is like a Tardis [the space-time-bending Doctor Who vehicle], where we could get everything in we usually have. I do think it will be possible in the future and I'm sure it will happen in my lifetime. We'd love to be part of that." more on this story
