Muse rocked Jimmy Kimmel Live from London last night, when the rockers followed up the premiere of World War Z with a performance in front of a sizable crowd at the Horse Guards Parade Ground in St. James Park.

Summer Movie Preview 2013: 'World War Z'

The London trio simulcast a pair of songs, starting with "Follow Me," from last year's album, The 2nd Law. Singer Matt Bellamy commanded the crowd with his soft voice as several screen projected clips from the apocalyptic zombie thriller, which features 14 minutes of Muse's music. Fans got a close view of the rocker as he walked along a Z-shaped stage singing "Follow me, you can follow me, and I will always protect you." 

Muse continued the performance with their 2006 hit "Starlight," from the album Black Holes and Revelations. The song opened with Bellamy urging fans to clap along as the piano built up. Bellamy took over a camera shooting the performance and got silly with a few self-shots before turning the lens on members of the crowd singing along to his every word. A laser show illuminated the band as a star-like light display swirled on the screens.
