Fightstar kick off day two of Download Fightstar Tickets

Band cause chaotic moshpits

Fightstar kick off day two of Download
Fightstar kicked off day two of Download today by instigating a huge moshpit at the Second Stage.

Taking to the stage at 2.20pm [BST], frontman Charlie Simpson and co launched into 'The English Way' from new album 'Be Human', before demanding that the front of the crowd separate into two opposing sides, so they could mosh during the next song.

Playing a short six-song set in the sunshine, the show saw the London four-piece air songs from across their three-album career, including 'Paint Your Target', 'Palahniuk’s Laughter' and the more recent 'War Machine'.

Simpson welcomed 'Be Human''s producer Carl Bown onstage for closing track 'Deathcar', Bown filling in on guitar while Simpson concentrated solely on vocal duties.

Fightstar played:

'The English Way'
'Paint Your Target'
'Grand Unification'
'Palahniuk's Laughter'
'War Machine'
'Deathcar'
