STAPLES CENTER - SEPTEMBER 26

Featuring Special Guest: Passion Pit
TICKETS ON SALE SATURDAY JULY 17 AT 10 AM

Los Angeles, CA - Following a widely praised headlining set at Glastonbury 2010, where the Guardian proclaimed they posses, \"21st-century rock's most powerful canon,\" Muse has announced a second Staples Center performance. With their September 25th concert sold out, the band has now added a second show on September 26th. Passion Pit will special guest both nights.

Tickets for the September 26th show go on sale Saturday, July 17th at 10 AM and will be available at LiveNation.com.

Of Muse's March 5th show at Madison Square Garden, the New York Times wrote: \"Every song in its set aimed to be a showstopper by any means necessary: a bashing, bruising riff; portentous classical-music arpeggios and chord progressions; a speeding, squealing lead guitar; a vocal that pours on the vibrato as it climbs; an explosive crescendo into the homestretch.\"

The band are touring in support of their fifth studio album The Resistance, which earned Muse their highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it bowed at No. 3. Muse's previous album, 2006's gold Black Holes and Revelations, peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard album chart. The Resistance also notched 20 No. 1 debuts around the world, including Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, and the U.K. The album's first single, \"Uprising,\" topped Mediabase's Alternative Rock chart for 19 consecutive weeks, breaking the record for number of consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Mediabase Alternative Rock chart for the 2009 calendar year.

The Resistance was produced by Muse and mixed by famed audio engineer Mark 'Spike' Stent. The band is vocalist/guitarist Matt Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and drummer Dom Howard.
