Just days after the tragic death of Bill Howard, the father of drummer Dominic, Muse have announced they will complete the rest of their festival dates.

Bravely living up to the old notion that “the show must go on”, Muse have confirmed they will play their planned festival appearances in Switzerland, Belgium and Denmark this weekend.
The news comes despite the family trauma experienced by Dominic, who’s father died suddenly shortly after the band’s Glastonbury set.

[R-Zone 1]Muse fan, Marc Oakes, said: “It’s a really brave thing for them to do, especially for Dominic. Hopefully the gigs will act as a fitting tribute to Bill.”

The band pulled out of their show in Bergamo, Italy, on this week Wednesday as a result of the tragedy.

But this weekend’s live appearances at St Gallen, Switzerland (2 July), the Werchter Festival, Belgium (3 July), and Roskilde, Denmark (4 July) are scheduled to go ahead.
