It’s true, nothing beats seeing rock music live on stage. On Sunday, March. 5, rock fans gathered together at Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis to see some of their favorite bands perform live. This included performances from ONE OK ROCK, Evanescence, and the one and only, Muse.

The arena doors opened at 5:30 p.m., and the concert began at 6:30 p.m. with ONE OK ROCK, best known for their song “Whenever You Are,” starting off the night and “waking up” the crowd. Shortly after, Evanescence, best known for their song “Bring Me to Life,” performed a beautiful show with unforgettable vocals from their lead singer Amy Lee. 

After each performance the crowd continued to grow louder and louder until finally, the main performance of the night from Muse. Muse’s set consisted of songs from their newest album “Will of the People” which came out in August of 2022, and many others. Especially their most popular and well known songs like: “Supermassive Black Hole,” “Uprising,” and “Knights of Cydonia.”

Each band brought their all during each performance, including amazing vocals and outstanding instrumentals – especially Muse with their crazy visuals, skills, and lots and lots of confetti. The concert then concluded around 11 p.m., and before Muse was even able to come on stage, Amy Lee, the lead singer for Evanescence, claimed that Muse was one of the “best bands to see live,” and she wasn’t wrong.

After the night ended, Muse and ONE OK ROCK ended up posting a little something on social media to remember the night. “We’re honored to be playing at Chaifetz Arena tonight and sharing this night with you.” (via@muse).

The North American leg of the tour began on Feb. 23, and tickets went on sale back in October of 2022. This leg will then conclude on April 20, at the Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, UT. As the tour progresses throughout the country, Muse announced that different bands would be touring with them. Up next is the rock band known as Highly Suspect, and starting on April 8, they will then begin touring with Muse at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
