Muse freaked out a lot of people who live near Ricoh Arena, a soccer stadium in Coventry, England. The band will play a concert there Wednesday night which will apparently include a lot of pyrotechnics.
People near the stadium thought it was on fire. Residents took to Twitter and Facebook to express concern. Rico Arena and Coventry were trending topics on Twitter in the UK on Monday night.
One photo does appear to show the stadium ablaze.

However, the official Twitter account confirmed that there was no reason for alarm.
