Who: Biffy Clyro
Where and when: Main stage, Leeds, 6pm.
Vibe: Aside from the shock of Simon Neil’s new blonde look – who dyes their beard?! It was great. Sweaty, chaotic and topless – like every Biffy gig and we still want to go back for more.
Best bit: An amazing crowd sing-a-long to ‘Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies’.
Low point: Simon’s new look. It was very distracting.
Banter: One heckler in the audience: “You sexy bastard! Take your pants off!” Standard Leeds banter.
Verdict: Biffy have a lot of loyal fans who know their lyrics word-perfect. They didn’t let one of them down with their energy on stage, career spanning setlist and Simon’s amazing pink skinny jeans.
