Muse has announced an upcoming run of 37 global concert dates for the coming year in support of their eighth studio album, Simulation Theory, which is scheduled for release this Friday (Nov. 9) on  Warner Bros. Records and their own Helium-3 label. The Simulation Theory World Tour will take the band across North America throughout next year's spring and winter months before they return to Europe and their native U.K. for the international leg of shows later on in the summer. Muse are also slated to perform at a select number of festival events including ALT 92.3's Not So Silent Night in Brooklyn next month, as well as Brazil’s popular Rock In Rio festival come next October.

The North American leg of the band’s headlining world tour will begin on Feb. 22 in Houston, with the prog-rock outfit making stops in venues like Phoenix’s Talking Stick Resort, Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Events Center and Oakland’s Oracle Arena, just to name a few. The North American leg continues until April 10 with a final show in Boston before they fly back across the pond for European dates beginning on May 26 in Prague. Muse only shared 17 total North American shows to go with Monday’s announcement, so fans should expect another leg of U.S. concerts to be announced closer to the start of the tour.

According to the band’s announcement, the tour’s “Enhanced Experience Package” will allow VIP ticket buyers to enjoy what they’re planning as a “Mixed Reality” pre-show event, where fans can step into three original virtual reality games which were inspired by songs from the new album.

Official Store pre-sale will begin next Tuesday on Nov. 13, with general on-sale starting a few days later on Friday, Nov. 16. Tickets to select shows on the tour, as well as more info on Muse for their upcoming album campaign behind Simulation Theory can be found by clicking here.

The band has already shared a handful of singles set to appear on Simulation Theory when the album arrives on Friday. Their latest music video and single even featured muscled actor Terry Crews fighting off little gremlins at a high school dance. There’s been no word as to whether or not Crews will join the band throughout the tour.
