February 11th 1990: Mandela released

On this day in 1990, the South African activist and politician Nelson Mandela was released from prison. Mandela had spent twenty-seven years in prison for his role as an anti-apartheid activist at the head of Umkhonto we Sizwe, which translates as Spear of the Nation. The controversial organisation served as the militant armed wing of the African National Congress political party, born out of a frustration among anti-apartheid activists that their non-violence was met with brutality by white authorities against black citizens. Mandela was arrested in 1962 and sentenced to life in prison, during which time he was largely condemned as a terrorist by Western nations. He served most of his twenty-seven years on Robben Island, then Victor Verster Prison near Cape Town, and during his imprisonment his reputation grew as a significant black leader both in South Africa and internationally. Mandela was finally freed after the ban on the ANC was lifted by the apartheid government. Upon his release, Mandela led the ANC in the successful negotiations with President F.W. de Klerk to end apartheid, and was overwhelmingly elected President of South Africa in the first multi-racial elections in 1994, serving until 1999. In 2013, Nelson Mandela died aged 95 and has been mourned around the world as a hero who fought for freedom in South Africa, and as a symbol of resistance for oppressed peoples everywhere.

“Our march to freedom is irreversible. We must not allow fear to stand in our way.”

anonymous asked:

how many shows has muse done? Like in total

in total, Muse has done approximately 1 220 gigs since Showbiz came out.

here’s some fun facts for you:

  • the minimum amount of gigs muse has ever done in one year between 1999-2013 is 17, which they did in 2008, all while writing, recording, arranging and producing The Resistance in Italy.

  • in 1999 and 2000 Muse did 146 gigs each year. But the most amount of gigs they’ve done in one year was back in 2004 when they did 147 gigs (that’s like each and every day wtf).

  • in 2004 they did 45 festival gigs alone (that’s just insane!)

  • in 1999, muse did 10 shows in 10 days in a row, had one day to rest and then did 9 gigs in 8 days in a row (hOW)

  • the same year, the average amount of days to rest was 1 day, while the average amount of days in a row to do gigs was 3 days in a row (i would die ok)
  • Their work pattern during a tour usually look like this: travel and gig 3 days in a row, rest one day, travel and gig 2 days in a row, rest one day (and so on). + promotion, interviews, television appearances and all that shit all bands has to do.

So yeah, at least you can’t say they haven’t worked their arses off to be where they are today ey.
