Music News: A man attending a recent concert by Muse realised all too late that he had made a huge and terrible mistake.
Max Schrecklich, who attended the gig in Vienna, only realised his terrible error ten minutes after the band had taken to the stage at the Wiener Stadthalle. The venue was reportedly so packed, it took Schrecklich a further 30 minutes to get outside – where he gulped down the cold, fresh air like a thirsty animal at a watering hole.
“I was talked into it by friends,” said Schrecklich. “They said it would be fun. I had not heard their music before. Needless to say, I no longer call these people my friends. Friends don’t let friends attend Muse gigs.”
Schrecklich said he ignored early warning signs at the gig – such as Muse fans – but still thought the experience might in some way be enjoyable.
“It was just awful,” he said, with a glazed thousand-yard stare in his eyes. “It felt like it took days to get out of that horrible place, my ears are still throbbing from the pitiful shrieking sounds coming from the stage.”
