Muse are well known for their spectacular live shows, but now the band is adding some app innovation into the mix.
Their label Warner Music has launched Muse 360, an iPhone and iPad app that promises fans the ability to “immerse yourself in the concert with full 360 degree views from 5 cameras where you control the show”.
That means the ability to watch live footage of tracks played when the band celebrated the 10th anniversary of their Origin of Symmetry album at the Reading Festival, switching between cameras to “create your own personalised Muse performance”.
The app itself is free, with preview clips of the songs, and the ability to pay via in-app purchase to watch the full performances – 69p per song, or £4.99 for the lot as far as we can make out.
The release follows a similar app for guitarist Slash, whose Slash 360 – The Apocalyptic Love Sessions was launched earlier this year. Warner’s technology partner for Muse 360, Mativision, was also behind that app.
