Panic Station ~ Muse in NYC

Yesterday my husband and I took the train from DC Union Station to Penn Station on NYC to see my favorite band Muse at Madison Square Garden. If you have not heard them then you are missing out... Seriously..... If you have not here you go...


They are AMAZING live! You might not even know you have heard them before.. You know the baseball scene in Twilight?? Yup that is a Muse song.. They actually have a song on 3 of the 5 movie soundtracks. The above song was the theme song for March Madness... Ok Moving on...


We left DC at 1 and arrived in NYC around 430. We walked around the area near MSG to see what would probably still be open after the concert since our train home was not until 3am. Yup 3AM.... We had some time to kill so we stopped at a bar outside of MSG to hang out until the doors opened at 6, Irish Times Bar and Pub. It was ok. We had a few beers and a appetizer platter.

Then we headed over to wait in line to get into the arena and find our seats. If you have not been to MSG you need to go. Not sure there is a really bad seat in the place.. We had taken a tour of the Garden a few years back and it was really cool to see the arena from different areas. Since then they have remodeled the seats and brought them into the 2000's. The seats used to be purple, gold and blue. Now they are either navy blue or black (hard to tell when the lights are not that bright... lol) Anyhoooo...

We sat through the opening band who was ok I guess... Not my style... THEN.... THE CONCERT. This was my 7th time seeing them. And it gets better each time I see them.




After the concert we walked around Times Square and stopped at Hard Rock Cafe to get something to eat.  After that we walked back to the train station to wait for our train home. We got home at 8 am and I fell asleep HARD.... Woke up at 3...

It was an amazing night and enjoyed EVERY min.... Now to wait to see them again on DC in September.....


Til next time.....
