Muse is one of my favorite bands. They are absolutely some of the most creative and talented groups out there… They are one of the few bands whom I can appreciate every single creation by.

When I learned that Muse would be one of the headliners at Lollapalooza, I was thrilled! Having worked with them closely (see Muse: Dominic Howard photoshoot, Muse Concert, and another line off of my bucket list! ) and seen them twice before, I knew that they would be a highlight not just for me, but for all music fans attending Lollapalooza.

Here are some photos from that evening in Chicago…

This has been an incredible year for concerts already! Buddy Guy, BB King, Shinedown, Killswitch Engage (3 times!), Galactic, and Muse!

Muse is a band that I have loved for a while. They are a band that only releases strong albums – masterpieces from creative geniuses!

Muse is comprised of 3 members – Matthew Bellamy on Vocals & Guitar, Christopher Wolstenholme on Bass, and Dominic Howard on Drums.

Each member contributes to the songwriting process. Each member brings huge sound to the album, and the live show.

The show was absolutely amazing. Incredible stage, stunning light show, spectacular performance of songs, great set list, and a variety of musical compositions played in addition to their songs.

Promark Drumsticks arranged for a 1 on 1 shoot with Dom Howard.
We got to the venue a few hours before the show. met with Muse’ security, and were immediately escorted to Dom Anderson, Muse’ long time tour manager.
Muse has a huge production and a massive crew – every member of which was *incredibly* polite and helpful. Muse’ crew is comprised of some of the most professional and kind crew members I’ve ever met.

Soon after meeting with Dom A., we were linked up with Dom Howard. Muse’s stage was already configured for the show, kabooki in place – so we needed to find another place to shoot.
Dom had a separate room with a full drumkit set up. A perfect, private little white room w/white ceilings.

I took a couple of minutes to set up 2 Canon 580EX speedlites on pocket wizards, pointing at the ceiling corners, and the shoot began!

Check out the photos and video below!
(Note: Many more photo to come! This is just a teaser for now!! )
