Muse were "s***ting themselves" before performing at a recent homecoming show.

The British rockers - made up of singer Matthew Bellamy, bassist Christopher Wolstenholme and drummer Dominic Howard - were so nervous about playing the highly-anticipated concert in their hometown of Teignmouth, Devon they thought they would have a heart attack on stage.

Chris said: "I'm totally s***ting myself. We're very nervous. We've not played for over a year, so we're probably completely unfit and will have a heart attack after two songs! There's going to be s**t loads of people we know there as well. It'll be the first gig we've ever done where it's like that. I still live in Teignmouth so I'm gonna recognise most of the people in the crowd. Part of me's going to have to switch off a bit and pretend it's just a normal gig."

Although it has been two years since the rockers played their huge sell-out show at London's Wembley Arena - which has approximately 90,000 seats - Chris is determined they will perform concerts of that size once again.

He explained to Britain's NME magazine: "Wembley was only one country. We've only played stadiums in England and France, that's not a lot. There's a lot of places we're playing where it would be great to get to that level. There's a long way to go."
