Bruce Springsteen joined The Rolling Stones on stage in Lisbon this week, performing a rendition of “Tumbling Dice” with the legendary British rock group.

Fan shot footage posted on YouTube shows the New Jersey native performing the song from the ‘Stones 1972 album, Exile On Main St, a song on which they had shared the stage before in 2012.

The Rolling Stones played to a sold-out crowd of 23,000 at Oslo’s Telenor Arena on Monday night, with a show that lasted over two hours. The tour had previously been postponed following the death of ‘Stones frontman Mick Jagger’s partner, fashion designer L’Wren Scott.

Muse to start work on new album in May

Muse have let it be known that they will be starting work on a new album next month.

Speaking to KROQ radio at the Coachella festival this past weekend, the band revealed that they are planning to begin work on the follow up to The 2nd Law in May.

Says drummer, Dom Howard: “We’re going to start this year… (Coachella) is our last two gigs, then we’re completely done for touring this album. We’re going to go back in May and start working on some new stuff, so I think we’ll start making it this year… If we can get something out this year, that would be great, but definitely next year.”

Muse will play the second leg of Coachella on the 19th April. Speaking about the new album on a prior occasion, singer and guitarist Matt Bellamy said that he had already been writing new material.

“I’ve written some good tracks, actually. We haven’t had a chance to rehearse them out yet… I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we’ve experimented with on the last two albums, which is electronics, symphonics and orchestral work and all that kind of stuff.”
