UK Band Muse Announces First Concert Filmed in 4K UHD

As more companies launch 4K TVs, one of the principal issues with the technology remains a lack of content. That said, the stream of 4K content continues at a steady trickle and UK band Muse is keen to contribute. The band is claiming to be the first to release a 4K Ultra High Definition concert film.

Muse - Live At Rome Olympic Stadium

Given how few people own 4K TVs, this concert is also going to be shown in cinemas around the world. Muse announced today that November 5 will see 20 cinemas in 20 cities around the world host special advance screenings exclusively in 4K. Cities taking part include Sydney, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Paris, London and Rio.  Click on your chosen city in the list to the right.

"Muse - Live At Rome Olympic Stadium is the first ever concert film shot in 4K Ultra High Definition," the band said in an announcement on their website. "4K means more pixels - to be precise 8.8 million of them bursting off the screen in even frame, that's four times more than you're used to seeing in the cinema. And more pixels means richer colours, a sharper image and more breath taking detail than you ever imagined."

If you don't manage to get tickets to one of the showings (London is already sold out, for example), 'Muse - Live At Rome Olympic Stadium' is scheduled for general release the following day, on November 6. Check out Muse's website to see if the movie is playing in your city.

    Interesting. I love Muse and they put on a great show, but I don't get why a concert would be released in theaters. Couldn't you just get the DVD and watch it at home? It would be exactly the same experience.
