U.K. rock act Muse has announced a pair of stadium shows at London's Wembley Stadium and Manchester's Lancashire County Cricket Club in September 2010.

The band's latest set "The Resistance" (Helium 3/Warner Music), released in September, reached No. 1 in 21 countries and entered the Billboard 200 at No. 3.

Muse is currently touring U.K. arenas including two nights at the O2 Arena this week. The 85,000 tickets for this tour sold out in under 30 minutes, according to a statement.

SJM Concerts will promote the stadium shows at Lancashire County Cricket Ground (Sept. 4) and London Wembley Stadium (Sept. 11).

Muse was the first rock act to play the new Wembley Stadium in June 2007; U2 played to 88,000 at the venue in August 2009, a record concert attendance for Wembley Stadium. The Lancashire County Cricket Club capacity is around 55,000.
