Muse Left Unamused
Muse have been forced to cancel shows on their US tour after singer and guitarist Matt Bellamy suffered a horrific onstage accident.
The band are currently on the road in North America in support of their third album 'Absolution'. While performing a show in Atlanta Matt injured himself onstage, meaning the gig was cut short and the singer taken to hospital.
One fan said: "During their fifth song he smashed his face into his guitar. I noticed something was wrong immediately because he leaned over to his roadie and pointed to his mouth, then I looked and it looked as if someone was pouring a water bottle down his face constantly, but it was blood. He kept spitting up more and more blood until he started to sing, and before he could finish the first few lines he quickly removed his guitar and only said: "I can't sing, I've f****d my face up!" and they all rushed off stage."
A statement from the band reads: "The band were forced to abandon their show in the Cotton Club, Atlanta when Matt badly injured his mouth during the set. He was taken to hospital and received stitches. Matts expecting further medical advice. Shows are unfortunately on temporary hold. The band are obviously very disappointed but looking forward to carrying on their new tour of the States as soon as possible."
