Since forming in 1994, Matt Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme aka Muse have released nine studio albums, selling over 30 million units worldwide. Prior to ‘Will of the People’ their previous album, ‘Simulation Theory’, debuted at #1 in multiple territories and followed by their 2015 album, ‘Drones’, which went on to win a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album, the band’s second. 

Muse support act in Manchester 

Supporting Muse on all of their UK tour dates, including in Manchester, will be Nova Twins. The rock duo consists of vocalist/guitarist Amy Love and bassist Georgia South and they formed in London back in 2014. 

Nova Twins have two albums, these are ‘Who Are The Girls?’ released in 2014 and ‘Supernova’, which came out last year. Described as punk rock, Nova Twins have gone from strength to strength and have written songs alongside some huge names including Bring Me The Horizon.
