Muse have today announced an intimate live show at The Royal Albert Hall on Monday, December 3rd to benefit The Prince’s Trust.
This concert is the band’s first performance in the UK since their headline show at Reading and Leeds in August 2017, and marks ten years since they last took to the stage at the Royal Albert Hall.
Matt Bellamy of Muse said,
“For a long time, we’ve admired the work of The Prince’s Trust. When we were starting out as a band the Trust actually gave us a small grant to buy our first PA system, which I still have to this day. It really helped set us up on the right road and we’re delighted to be able to play a show to raise funds for them.”
An ‘early access’ ticket presale will take place on Wednesday 10th October for fans who have pre-ordered the new album, Simulation Theory, released 9th November.
Tickets will go on general sale on Friday 12th October at 9am through Gigs And Tours. ID ticketing will be in operation with tickets limited to two per person. The band will be partnering with Twickets for fan to fan resale.
In addition there will be a chance to win a unique VIP experience to attend the concert, including a guided tour with the band of the iconic building before the show and a song dedication during the set.

Talking about the show, Nick Stace, Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust says:
“We’re incredibly proud to count the band Muse among our alumni here at The Prince’s Trust, and thrilled that they are putting on this special concert in aid of the charity. The show will raise vital funds for the work we do at The Prince’s Trust to help young people reach their potential and achieve their dreams”.
About The Prince’s Trust
Youth charity The Prince’s Trust helps young people to develop the confidence and skills they need to realise their ambitions, so that they can live, learn and earn. Founded by The Prince of Wales in 1976, the charity supports 11 to 30-year-olds, who are unemployed, struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.
Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness, mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law. The programmes offered by the charity give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training.
The Trust has helped over 900,000 young people to date and supports over 100 more each day.
