MUSE WANT TO PLAY SPACE GIG

British rockers Muse want their next gig to be out of this world - they plan to become the first band to perform in space.

Frontman Matt Bellamy is desperate to play on a spacecraft and wants to convince British tycoon Richard Branson to allow the band to travel on his Virgin Galactic rocket plane, which will take wealthy passengers into space within the next decade.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "We've had some discussions about playing in space. Sometimes very coherent conversations and sometimes very late at night, but it's for real.

"I'm thinking of approaching Richard Branson to see if we could do it on his spacecraft he's got happening. Although we do have a lot of equipment, so I guess we'd have to use pods to carry our stuff and we'd scale back the shows a lot... I do think it will be possible in the future and I'm sure it will happen in my lifetime. We'd love to be part of that."
