Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly urge Leeds Festival to watch Rage naked

Sam Duckworth also admits he feared 'bottles of piss' at the event

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly urge Leeds Festival to watch Rage naked
Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly have urged the crowd at the Main Stage at Leeds Festival today (August 23) to watch headliners Rage Against The Machine naked tonight.

Frontman Sam Duckworth explained that so many items of clothing were lost during the US rockers' set in Reading last night (August 22) that it would be best to come along wearing nothing.

He told the crowd: "At the end of Rage last night there was a mountain about my height actually of shoes, clothes and wallets. Come naked, it's gonna be a lot easier than trying to find the rest of your possessions."

As well as performing tracks from their two albums, 'Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager' and 'Searching For The Hows And Whys', Duckworth admitted that he was expecting to be bottled at the festival.

Addressing the audience, the singer-songwriter said: "I had nightmares of bottles of piss, nightmares of Daphne And Celeste (bottled off at Reading in 2000). Now I've said that I'll probably get a barrage of piss. But I'm not gonna do a Mike Patton (of Faith No More) and drink it, though."

Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly played:

'Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager, Part Two'
'I Spy'
'Let The Journey Begin'
'Call Me Ishmael'
'War Of The Worlds'
'Chronicles Of A Bohemian Teenager, Part Two'
