Michael gazumps Muse

Muse had been poised to get a place in the record books - or, at least, a permanent walk-on part in pub quizzes - by loudly proclaiming themselves to be the "first band to play the new Wembley Stadium."

Now, though, it turns out they won't be: George Michael has snuck in and booked a date seven days before. He'll now get to test the acoustics - we're betting they're shit - on June 9th.

It's somehow fitting with our growing theory that Muse are everyone's favourite not exactly favourite band that they'll manage to be the first band, technically to headline Wembley, what with Michael being a solo artist and so on.
