Muse don’t like that The Rolling Stones are charging their fans hundreds of dollars to see them play. Last week, the iconic band sold out their London shows in less than seven minutes after the tickets went on sale, with the cheapest seats going for $144. To Muse, that’s just too much.

Another year – another season, mind – another music festival. When it gets old, you’ll be the first to know.
It’s hard to believe that the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival is only three years young, but maybe that’s why it’s looking so good. The official lineup was announced today and things are ready and rearing to go this August 12-14. Stadium heavyweights Muse and Phish leading the pack with two sets, and such movers-and-shakers from Arcade Fire, MGMT, The Black Keys, The Decemberists and Erykah Badu, to our favorites Foster the People and oft-on-our-radar Grouplove and The Vaccines, will take on the various stages at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA.

The festival itself is still months away–it runs from August 6-8 in Chicago’s Grant Park–but Babble is reporting that a virtual time capsule has been created on the official website to commemorate two decades of musical celebration.

It’s a few months off, but a valid source–The Chicago Tribune–seems to believe we’ve already identified a few artists who will be headlining the Lollapalooza music and arts festival this year. According to the article, none other than the Foo Fighters, Muse and Eminem will be taking the stage between August 5 and 7.

Fans of subtlety, don’t go looking for in-flight entertainment the next time you book a flight to Mars (of course, you probably would be flying to a place a little more low-key anyway, like Decatur, Illinois or something). According to Spinner, Muse is looking to speak with Richard Branson “a proposed deal” to be the in-flight performers for Virgin Galactic, Branson’s planned company to offer sub-orbital spaceflights to the paying public. Which is great, because the first live performance of human art in space, which will announce to the stars our ability to express the human experience through aesthetically pleasing forms that shall linger into immortality, should be by a band that makes Queen seem too nuanced and cerebral.

Even when it seems as though half of the music you hear these days has been processed and auto-tuned to death, the fact is that there are still plenty of artists out there with raw talent, and the best way to recognize this is to catch their live shows. 2010 was a great year for concert-goers of all tastes. Whether you like country-pop, rap, indie rock, and whether you prefer festivals, concert series or solo tours, there was something for everyone this year.
Here’s a few of our favorites…

Beyond the western horizon, nestled within the city of Austin, awaits a festival teeming with holistic musical vibes and a down-home appeal that you could only get from an oasis in the heart of Texas.
Stemming back to 2002, Austin City Limits is still holding tight to its roots this year. Bringing together rock, hip-hop, reggae, world fusion, indie and local flavor, the festival is proving to have its most memorable year yet.

Don’t be shocked when you hear that Muse could (should) be the world’s biggest band. They’re awesome. Today, Yahoo reminds us that the band has been opening for U2 over the past year, and given their tour hiatus, might just take over their position as the headliners. But here’s the thing — Muse and U2, totally different. Yes, both appeal to the masses but the times are changing. Bono just doesn’t do it for me anymore.
