Six nights previously, as Muse warmed up for the Midlands instalment of their 2nd Law Tour with some stage-set rehearsal, the good citizens of that town feared that their Ricoh Arena was on fire, and alerted the authorities.

Two Door Cinema Club are one of those bands that make you wonder what the point is.
