The English rock group Muse performing the end of the song "Uprising", with a guitar plunged into a bass drum finale, on April 19, 2013 at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. This was shot from the upper tier Section 242.
While the close-ups of the stage are pretty low resolution, some nice shots of the band's impressive light show as noted below make this a decent watch. The entire setlist is provided at bottom.
The entire two-hour show can be seen at this YouTube page:
The 2nd Law World Tour has quickly become known for its extravagant and unique stage show. Some effects used include:
-An enormous pyramid of LED screens that gradually descends and "consumes" the band during the show.
-Large use of strobe lighting as well as corrupted system text on a floor panoramic screen during "The 2nd Law: Unsustainable".
-Balloons and confetti raining on the pit crowd during "Follow Me".
-Drummer Dominic Howard being revealed by the pyramid as it ascends during "Uprising".
-A life-size grid forming on the pyramid during "The 2nd Law: Isolated System".
-Laser lights of many different colors shooting in different directions during "Starlight".
-Synchronized lyrics appearing on as many as 10-17 different screens during "Knights of Cydonia".
-Robotic likenesses of the letter "M" featured in the lyric video for "Madness" appearing as it is performed.
-A large roulette wheel appearing on the screens and in the pyramid choosing between "Newborn" or "Stockholm Syndrome"
-Carbon dioxide cannons blasting off on the final beats of "Survival".
