Muse To Turn ‘World War-Z’ Movie Premiere Into Concert
Muse is set to play a full concert for 15,000 fans after zombie-apocalypse thriller, World War Z, premieres in London on June 2.
According to Billboard, the British threesome will take the stage at Horse Guards Parade Ground, St. James’s Park, after the film debuts on screens in London’s Leicester Square.
In the film, fans will hear approximately 14 minutes of Muse’s vocal-less yet stirring song, “Isolated System” from the bands latest album, 2012’s The 2nd Law.
Frontman Matt Bellamy described the track to NME in rather obtuse terms: “Hanging around space would be so peaceful and quiet and suddenly you come to this little blip that’s f***ing chaos! I see it as drifting away from the planet and going into the peacefulness of what actually is gonna happen at the end of it all, which is nothingness.”
“It made the movie feel and sound really cool,” Randy Spendlove, Paramount Pictures’ President of Motion Picture Music told Billboard. “After we layered in the music, we reached out to their management in the U.S. and the U.K. to see how we could reach beyond the movie. We wanted (the relationship) to be bigger than that.”
Hitting theaters June 21, World War Z centers follows United Nations employee Gerry Lane, played by Brad Pitt, who finds himself racing around the world trying to stop a pandemic that threatens to turn the human race into zombies.
