TEIGNMOUTH rock band Muse are to release a concert film, possibly as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations.
Although the band did not release their first album until 1999, it was in 1994 that they first got together at school in the resort.
No release date for the film has been announced yet, but lead singer Matt Bellamy told Rolling Stone magazine that he expected the film to get a limited theatrical release, including some IMAX screens.
He said: "Over the summer, we played this massive gig in Rome Olympic Stadium, that was probably the best gig of the year. The film is gonna come out in 4K, which is the highest resolution concert ever shot. It’s four times more powerful than HD, so it’s like ridiculous detail. When you see the concert being filmed, you can see all the crowd, you can see their faces being filmed."
Last month, Bellamy suggested that the band will celebrate their 20th anniversary by embarking on a celebratory tour next year.
Posting on Twitter, Bellamy responded to fans who were asking him about the special gig they filmed in Tokyo, Japan, when he dropped the hint about the birthday celebrations.
He wrote: "Hey, relax, that's just a rehearsal for our 20 year anniversary tour!"
