Some rock stars just can’t keep a secret. This year’s Austin City Limits lineup isn’t due out for another week, but Muse let slip that they’ll be headlining the festival. During a Q&A with Montreal radio station CHOM 97.7, Muse frontman Matthew Bellamy listed a couple of the band’s upcoming North American tour dates, saying that they’ll be wrapping up their U.S. tour in Austin at the festival.
Austin City Limits 2013 will be taking place over two weekends (Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 11-13) at Austin’s Zilker Park. This will be the band’s third time headlining at the fest; they also performed at Austin City Limits in 2007 and 2010. As for the other headliners, we’ll just have to stay tuned for another week, when the official announcement comes out. …Unless some other bands want to spill the beans.
