Liam Fray and co have a dig at Main Stage rivals at Stafford
The band played a typically robust set on the 4Music Stage, showcasing debut album ‘St Jude’.
Hailing from Manchester, the group enjoyed a “hometown” crowd who joined in with several loud sing-a-longs during the set.
The band also praised their audience for avoiding their V Stage (the bash’s Main Stage) rivals.
“Thank you for watching us instead of Scouting for Girls,” declared frontman Liam Fray[/a]. “Now on with the show.”
Fray also had a word of warning for any of the crowd contemplating a holiday romance, dedicated cautionary love song ‘Bide Your Time’ to “anyone who’s been on holiday this year”.
The Courteeners played:
‘Bide Your Time’
‘Kings Of The New Road’
‘You’re Not 19 Forever’
‘What Took You So Long’
