So, after three days of sheer music madness the North/South music mecca of Reading+Leeds has come to a close, and only on BBC4. Tonight’s headliners, Biffy Clyro, made their second appearance on the Main Stage, three years since their last one, and it was just amazing. Led by frontman Simon Neil the Scottish trio sang many of their infamous hits including Rebel Chord, 57, Bubbles, Black Chandelier, The Captain, Many of Horror and Stingin’ Bell to name but a few. For me it was just sheer bliss to watch and to hear some of my favourite songs by Clyro was definitely worth staying up for (armed with a glass of JD &coke). So, that wraps it up for next year, see you again next year R+L.
Just finished watching Muse headline the Main Stage at Glastonbury and my god it was absolutely awesome. As a band they are simply fantastic and practically set the stage alight when performing live they are that good. Introduced by Lauren Laverne and reintroduced by Huw Stephens and the woman who I describe as the 1st Lady of Glastonbury Jo Whiley. They performed many of there hits including Uprising, Supermassive Blackhole, Starlight including their ever infamous (in my opinion) Knights of Cydonia during which they managed to get the crowd to sing along to; I even had a Jack Daniels and Coke at hand (very rock and roll). All I can say is that Muse are one band that I’d happily stay up late for.
Yes, okay I admit that I switch back and forth between this and Graham Norton to catch a glimpse of Iggy Pop. I liked Iggy but I JUST LOVE MUSE!!!!
