SCISSOR SISTERS NAKED!
SCISSOR SISTERS' JAKE SHEARS ended up naked at the end of the band's set at T IN THE PARK this afternoon.

The band played second on the Main Stage (July 11), on a bill that will also include Franz Ferdinand, The Thrills, Pixies and The Strokes throughout the day.

Singer Jake Shears amazed the huge crowd by coming on stage in a revealing tartan ‘toga’, much to the amusement of his fellow bandmemers.

He joked: “I made it myself, it’s a little something I whipped up.”

Bandmate Ana Matronic retorted: “That’s a table cloth! But at least you’re getting in the spirit.”

As the set progressed the Scottish audience started screaming at the stage, asking if Shears was wearing any underwear below his tartan. He was, and at the end removed his underwear and threw it towards the crowd.

However, there was more to come. At the end of the gig, the band moved to the front of the stage to take a bow, and in doing so the toga slipped off, leaving Shears naked as the day he was born.

Scissor Sisters 40 minute set drew heavily from their self-titled UK Number One album, opening with ’Take Your Mama’, ’Tits On The Radio’ and ’Laura’.

The weather onsite at T In The Park on the second day is largely dry, with a slight chance of rain. Crime is also low, with police saying that up to 6am this morning there had been 35 arrests, all for minor incidents, and 104 reported crimes.

Event organisers continue to stress that there are some forged tickets in circulation, and not to come to T without a ticket bought from an official outlet.

Police Chief Superintendent Matt Hamilton said: “Clearly there has been a problem with forgeries, music fans should not come to the site if they do not have a ticket. If you buy a ticket today at the site the chances are it will be fake and you will not get into the event. Policing has been increased at points of entrance to deal with this issue.”
