Muse / Watch the trailer for Simulation Theory, the film of the tour
19 August 2020
Muse are releasing the film of their 2019 Simulation Theory Tour this Friday (21 August) via Eagle Rock Entertainment.
Filmed London’s O2 Arena in September 2019, Simulation Theory follows a team of scientists as they investigate the source of a paranormal anomaly appearing around the world. Crossing the lines between narrative and concert film, this was Muse’s most theatrical tour to date, prompting us to question the world around us.
The film was directed by Lance Drake, who also directed all the promo videos for Simulation Theory album and has been produced by Muse, Pulse Films, Lance Drake, Jesse-Lee Stout and Matthew Bellam.
Drake tells us: “The goal for Simulation Theory was to capture the scale of the electrifying live show and to expand upon its connection to the DNA of the world we built for the past three years in music videos for Muse.
“In a strange turn, the film’s alternate reality eerily started to mirror our own.”
The film is to be released in digital format, available from iTunes, Amazon and Google Play.
