At the kick off concert of their new tour in Montpellier, France, Muse unveiled a stage show that featured new props including one called the "Tornado/Pyramid" reveal. Frontman Matt Bellamy explained the significance of the structure to NME:
"It's basically an upside-down pyramid which is a very symbolic gesture. A lot of people think the pyramid represents power structures, you know, in every walk of life. Anything from basic corporate structures with a top down system where CEOs take all the profit and get paid more than the people at the bottom, which is the kind of down to earth version, to the Illuminati, you know."
"The pyramid seems to represent the power structures of the world. Turning it upside down is a gesture as to what we think of that," he added somewhat cryptically.
The band is currently on tour in support of their latest album, The 2nd Law.
