The first time I saw Muse, I only knew a handful of songs. Muse was one of many bands playing at KROQ's 2004 Almost Acoustic Christmas.
I was floored. I even got a little teary during "Butterflies and Hurricanes." I felt terrible for poor Modest Mouse who played right after Muse. You just can't follow Muse. Through no fault of its own, Modest Mouse sounded like poo.
Then we saw Muse at the Forum. Then at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. Then at the 2007 KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas as headliners. Then at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel.
And then at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on April 10.
Undoubtedly the best live band touring right now. Maybe the best live band of our time.

But that wasn't the end of our Muse experience. No, no. It gets better, guys.
As we were waiting for the valet the next day at THEhotel, Mrs. Oro spotted some very familiar hair across the way.
Could it be?
Matthew Bellamy and Dominic Howard posed politely as I mugged maniacally.
But this photo was even better.
Mr. Oro is lucky he snagged Mrs. Oro when he did. Ha!
I still can't believe your luck!!ReplyDelete
Awesome. You are a rock star.ReplyDelete
what a FANTASTIC way to end your night! so awesome.ReplyDelete
I die! I die! I die!ReplyDelete
I agree with you... They are an incredible live band. Definitely the best live band I've ever seen. It was an amazing show and I can't wait to see them again!
I love my petite little rockstar, Matt. He looks like he smells good too. lol.

I just recently started getting into Muse! Very cool that you got to meet them!ReplyDelete

I am shamed that I only know about Muse because of Twilight. Shamed I say!ReplyDelete
How awesome that you got to meet them! Definitely one of my new favorite bands, their music is awesome (even songs not on the Twilight soundtrack)!
You have the coolest life ever!ReplyDelete

It's funny because Matthew and Dominic look EXACTLY the same in both pictures!ReplyDelete
I have to say, I'm not a huge muse fan, but I'm still happy for you!ReplyDelete
So jealous!! How cool!ReplyDelete
yeah, i still would have no idea who they are if not for the song in twilight, but i can appreciate your enthusiasm.ReplyDelete
Wm and I have tickets to see them in October! I hated Muse at first, but now I completely love them. I wish I had come around earlier to see them in a smaller venue. I can't wait!!!ReplyDelete
I love your photoshop bubbles.ReplyDelete
This rocks!!! (Pun intended) LOVE Muse!!!ReplyDelete
BTW, should we be calling you MuseMonkey now? ;)
Those bubbles just killed me. This post sadly reminded me that I wasn't able to get tickets for their upcoming show in LA :( Wah wah wah. :(ReplyDelete
