Muse at Staples Center

January 24, 2013

The English rock band Muse set off a worldwide hunt for synonyms for "overblown" when it unleashed "Survival," a proudly Nietzschean piece of choral apocalypse that somehow became the official anthem of the London Summer Olympics. Yet it turns out "Survival" was just a warmup: With a title inspired by the second law of thermodynamics, Muse's latest studio album opens with a tune called "Supremacy" (think Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir" remade for a James Bond flick) and only grows bigger and bolder from there. Staples Center, 1111 S. Figueroa Ave., L.A. 7 p.m. Thu. and 8 p.m. Sat., $35-$69.50. staplescenter.com.
