Biffy Clyro play half-naked at Reading Festival

Scottish band perform stripped to the waist at Reading bash

Biffy Clyro play half-naked at Reading Festival
Biffy Clyro played a half-naked afternoon set on the Main Stage at the Reading Festival this afternoon (August 22).

The Scottish band arrived on stage in sunny conditions wearing tight blue trousers but stripped to the waist, much to the delight of the large crowd that had assembled to watch them.

With several St Andrew's Crosses - Scotland's national flag - being waved during the performance, the band played a series of crowd favourites including 'Saturday Superhouse' and 'Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies'.

Despite including 'Who's Got A Match?', the band did not repeat the visual highlights of last year's literally incendiary set on the NME/ Radio 1 Stage, during which frontman Simon Neil set fire to his guitar.

The band kept the banter to a minimum, ended their set with '57'.

Biffy Clyro played:

'Saturday Superhouse'
'Who's Got A Match?"
'A Whole Child Ago'
'9/15ths'
'Love Has A Diameter'
'Mountains'
'Get Fucked, Stud'
'Machines'
'Now I'm Everyone'
'Living Is A Problem Because Everyone Dies'
'57'
