Widely considered to be the best live band in the world, the British rock trio Muse has played to sell-out crowds throughout the U.S., Asia, Australia, and Europe.

Muse's fusion of progressive rock, electronica, and Radiohead-influenced experimentation is crafted by guitarist/vocalist Matthew Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and drummer Dominic Howard.

Now, before their tour stop at US Airways Center on March 16, you can see candid backstage photos of the group on their North American tour, courtesy of Vanity Fair

" asked the award-winning trio to take us on the road with them through their images, by answering our photo questionnaire. Below, Dom Howard, Matt Bellamy, and Chris Wolstenholme give us a peek at life on tour, from inviting fans to play ping-pong and football (yes, football, not soccer) to getting lost in a different venue every day, and what everyone has in common: dirty laundry."

Muse actually details descriptions of the photos themselves. Click here to view the entire Vanity Fair gallery and see the photo that matches their following captions:

  • "Here is the view from our stage at the Staples Center on January 26, just before we went on for the third night. It felt amazing to do the third show in such an incredible venue."
  • "We have really been getting into playing ping-pong on this tour. We have been playing some fans too, which has been hilarious!"
  • "On the West Coast run, we wanted to get home to see our families as often as possible . . . every day off spent at home is so important to us!"
  • "We eat pretty much anything that Pete tells us to. Pete makes incredible food for us and makes sure we eat at the right times so we are not too full before we go onstage. Portion control is very important in our business, as it’s easy to get fat these days."
