Biffy Clyro played to a huge crowd on T In The Park's Main Stage tonight (July 11), with frontman Simon Neil mocking his recently sustained knee injury during the set.

Neil showed hardly any signs of struggling with the twisted knee he suffered after falling on stage during the band's Glastonbury 'secret' performance on the Park Stage, though he did mock the incident by walking onstage being aided by bassist James Johnston.

However, as soon as the band launched into a frenzied version of opening track 'That Golden Rule' it was clear he was only acting, with Neil jumping around the stage as normal and even crouching to the floor with his legs stretched apart as far as possible.

The singer, wearing blue jeans and matching trainers, was as energetic as usual during the band's set - at several points playing on his knees - though he refrained from jumping off any equipment or jumping into the photo pit.

Performing a career-spanning set, the band praised T In The Park and the massive audience at several points during the set, as they performed a slowed down version of 'Many Of Horror', with the crowd singing along, while during 'Who's Got A Match?' Neil sing delivered his vocals while perched upon a monitor speaker.

Biffy Clyro played:

'That Golden Rule'
'Living Is A Problem Because Everyone Dies'
'Glitter And Trauma'
'Who's Got A Match?'
'God And Satan'
'Born On A Horse'
'Shock Shock'
'A Whole Child Ago'
'Many Of Horror'
'The Captain'
