Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, 37, and his glamorous model beau Elle Evans, 26, took some time out from the gruelling Drones Tour to enjoy some immersive horror at Secret Cinema’s 28 Days Later production on Saturday evening in London.
The British rocker was joined by his support acts from his tour including Som Wardner of My Vitriol and Sarah Barthel of Phantogram on Saturday for the latest offering from Secret Cinema.
2016 has been a busy year already for Bellamy who won a Grammy for Best Rock Album in February, announced as a Glastonbury headliner and now in the midst of a huge world tour. With only one day off in London, you might expect him to relax and unwind, but instead he took his rocker pals to don doctors scrubs and run away from zombies in the latest offering from Secret Cinema.
Muse, winners of umpteen best live band awards, would have been used to the huge spectacle, but the frightening scenes in the production caused Evans and Barthel to scream on numerous occasions as they raced around the secret location. Ever the British gent, Bellamy held Evans' hand throughout as their blossoming romance continues.
Matt Bellamy said after the show:
“That was brilliant, it was just the escape we needed, I love the film and Secret Cinema's production was great."
28 Days Later is a post apocalyptic thriller, often attributed to reinvigorating the entire zombie genre on a whole, starring Cillian Murphy as Jim, a bicycle courier who awakes from a coma to find that a virus has spread amongst the population, all but resulting in complete societal collapse.
The narrative then unfolds to follow the journey of Jim as he struggles to come to terms with what has happened and, ultimately, survive in a London that has been torn apart by the infected.
Secret Cinema presents 28 Days Later is on now until 29th May 2016 with tickets starting from £40. For more information visit www.secretcinema.org/tickets.

BREAKING NEWS:- Founder of artist development agency The MuseBox, Nadine Gelineau, passes away from lung cancer
Nadine Gelineau, an adored music industry veteran and the founder / CEO of music marketing agency The MuseBox, passed away due to lung cancer on Thursday, April 7 in Los Angeles, according to Billboard Magazine. She was 56. Having worked with a long list of music giants that includes The Killers, Echo and The Bunnymen, and Guided by Voices, Gelineau recently joined forces with industry vets Erik Koral and Andrea Young to co-manage The MuseBox, resulting in what is now The Koral Young Group.
Nadine’s far-reaching music career began in Ottawa, Canada as a DJ at CKCU. She started The MuseBox in 2006, with offices located in New York, Los Angeles, and Ottawa. Her many reputable clients included The Neighbourhood, Echo and The Bunnymen, and The Human League. With an unparalleled passion for music, Gelineau helped promote hundreds of independent artists while making life-long friends with musicians and colleagues. All who encountered Nadine were impressed by her business acumen, sharp wit, and kind spirit.
In January of 2016, Nadine was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. A GoFundMe campaign on her behalf quickly raised $65,000 by devoted friends, associates, and artists. Coupled with an enthusiastic support group on Facebook, it became clear that countless lives had been touched by Gelineau throughout her long and storied career.
In February of 2016, Gelineau brought in Chief Marketing Officer Koral and Chief Operating Officer Young to co-manage The MuseBox while she received treatment for her cancer. Koral and Young anticipated working alongside Gelineau during and after her treatment, but Gelineau’s health soon took a turn for the worse and she was rushed to Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Hollywood. Within a few days of being admitted, Nadine was moved to the ICU, where she remained until passing away peacefully.
Both Koral and Young hope to honour Gelineau by continuing The MuseBox’s legacy. Koral was “completely flattered” when Gelineau asked him to help run her company. Young, meanwhile, had long admired Gelineau’s “fierce and ferocious commitment to artist development.” In the final weeks of Gelineau’s life, her family gave Koral and Young their blessing to continue Gelineau’s work through The Koral Young Group.
