Muse stadium rehearsal causes fire scare

A Muse stage rehearsal taking place at Coventry's Ricoh Arena caused some onlookers to think the venue was on fire.

The British rock group are due to play the stadium on Wednesday (May 22) but they tested out some of their renowned special effects last night (May 20).

However, curious onlookers saw flames coming out of the top of the stadium and presumed the venue was on fire.

One person tweeted a photo of the stadium looking like it was in flames before news spread online.

This prompted the venue to clarify on Twitter that the smoke was just from Muse's live set-up. They said:

"Just to confirm there is no fire here at the Ricoh Arena. They are just testing everything ready for Wednesday night's Muse concert."

In addition to the Coventry date, Muse are due to play two shows at London's Emirates Stadium and one show at Manchester's Etihad Stadium as part of their UK tour.
