High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program



Stood for ‘High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program’, H.A.A.R.P is the third live DVD to be released by Devon band ‘Muse’

Taken from two concerts performed by the band at Wembley Stadium in June 2007, the live DVD contains 20 songs (the CD 15) and gives, for anybody who wasn’t there a look at how the band took to the colossal stadium.

If opening with ‘Knights of Cydonia’ wasn’t a clear enough indication that Muse were going to rock Wembley, and rock it hard, then playing Hysteria (taken from 2004’s album ‘Absolution’) straight after it would help makes thing a little clearer. The stage set up with giant satellites, people floating around the sky on air balloons, and two mosh pits that clearly resemble something of an alien nature it makes the bands lyrics -influenced by global conspiracies and the New World Order Conspiracy- fit right in.

Winner of 11 live awards, it’s natural to be in awe at the bands stage presence. Their entrance, rising up from the middle of the stadium, Matt Bellamy picking up his guitar via what looks like a robot from the future, the satellites mentioned earlier shining bright lights onto the crowd as night falls on Wembley, the outro riffs, it’s all there and as Matt said in an interview, they want to make it even bigger and better next time.

The DVD is a must buy for any Muse fan of course, and it’s a great way to see them play one of their biggest gigs ever. The real treat however comes to the people who were there that day, to relive the memory of it all.
