Widespread dissapointment for Denver Muse fans


Posted Tue, Apr 13, 2010

BROOMFIELD – Music fans around the state frowned in unison after finding out that the Muse concert scheduled for April 6 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield had been postponed.

The British prog-rock band, which has been touring the U.S., got stranded in the snow in Vail Pass and could not make it to the venue in time.

“Sorry we couldn’t make it to Denver (our trucks and buses got stuck in the snow about 150 miles from venue!). Big apologies to all fans!” the band posted on their Twitter account.

The band and the media made efforts to get the information out to as many people as possible as soon as they found out. Besides posting the bad news all over the Internet, radio personality Nerf from KTCL 93.3 announced it on the air and electronic road signs on the way to 1st Bank Center read ‘MUSE CONCERT CANCELED.’

Via Twitter, many fans expressed their disappointment and also understanding and support from Muse. The most frustrated were the ones that had traveled to Colorado just to see the show.

“Drove all the way to Denver for the @muse show and it’s been cancelled. 8 1/2 hours for nothing,” tweeted one disillusioned fan.

The band has a busy schedule; with a U.S. tour to finish, the Denver concert had to be pushed all the way to Oct. 2nd.

To keep concert-goers from getting too depressed, there is a positive side to this incident. The rescheduled show, which had originally sold out quickly, will now be held in the Pepsi Center. This means there are more seats available and more tickets will be sold for those who didn’t buy them the first time around.

Beginning April 14th, ticket holders will be able to exchange their tickets for the Oct. 2nd show. The date for the sales of extra tickets will not yet be announced to give a chance to people who already have tickets to exchange theirs before the show sells out again.

Despite their fame in Europe, it took Muse a longer time to become big in America. With their 5th album, they have finally gained a fan base large enough to have a big tour around the country. With this tour, they brought the big equipment and light show they usually saved only for Europe.

The band expressed how bad they felt about disappointing Colorado followers through Internet outlets and let them know they would make it up to them.

“We’ll make up for it on October the 2nd in Denver, we promise!” was their final tweet on the subject.
