Muse - BB&T Center, Sunrise - February 22

Muse likes to wax philosophically in their lyrics, singing about revolts and power struggles with soaring bravado-laden falsetto choruses that shout arena rock. So maybe that creates false expectations for the band's live act. And maybe, on stage, the British trio is just not that interesting.

But it's also too bad since a Muse show has all the elements -- the hallucinatory laser lights, the barrage of familiar singles and the charmingly loony lead singer/guitarist Matthew Bellamy -- to make for an outrageous performance.
