Preparations are well underway for this weekend’s Muse concerts, taking place at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 25.

With the football season over, thousands of fans will flock to the Gunners’ home this weekend and fill the space more commonly inhabited by Arsène Wenger’s team. The pitch has been laid with protective matting, while the stage is being built against the familiar backdrop of the Clock End.

The multi-award winning band will be joined by special guest Dizzee Rascal on both nights, while indie rockers Bastille and The 1975 will provide additional support across the two nights.
