Beginning in early 2019, U.K. prog/rock/experimental band Muse went out on a gigantic global tour, playing in front of a million people across 28 countries. The Simulation Theory Tour, named after the group’s 2018 album of the same name, was quite a spectacle.

On Aug. 17, MUSE – Simulation Theory: The IMAX Experience will be available in select IMAX theaters around the world (where applicable), and will hit media platforms in various formats on Aug. 21.

Here’s a preview of the concert film, which seems perfectly suited for late-night viewing in your home, all of the lights turned off so you can fully appreciate the vibe:

More, per a news release:

Conceived and filmed at London’s O2 Arena in September 2019 the film directed by Lance Drake, (who also directed all the promo videos for Simulation Theory album) and Produced by Muse, Pulse Films, Lance Drake, Jesse-Lee Stout, and Matthew Bellamy, follows a team of scientists as they investigate the source of a paranormal anomaly appearing around the world. Blurring the lines between narrative and concert film, virtual and reality, Muse’s most theatrical tour to date launches the viewer through a supernatural spectacle, questioning the world around us.
Says Drake, “the goal for Simulation Theory was to capture the scale of the electrifying live show and to expand upon its connection to the DNA of the world we built for the past three years in music videos for Muse. In a strange turn, the film’s alternate reality eerily started to mirror our own.”

There’s plenty of additional information regarding the film’s release — view the band’s Instagram page for more.
