Panic! At The Disco get bottled again at Carling Weekend: Reading Festival

No one is knocked out as band debut new songs

Panic! At The Disco get bottled again at Carling Weekend: Reading Festival
A member of Panic! At The Disco was bottled for a second year running on the main stage at the Carling Weekend: Reading Festival today (August 25).

Last year frontman Brendon Urie was briefly knocked out seconds into the band's first song on the main stage by a bottle thrown from the crowd.

This time, the band took the stage to an ineffectual barrage of bottles none of which threatened the singer as they opened with
'The Only Difference Between Martyrdom And Suicide Is Press Coverage'.

"Alright, this is going better than last year," joked guitarist Ryan Ross. "We made it through the first one."

However he spoke a little too soon.

During 'Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off' - which Urie introduced telling the crowd: "So this one is a little sexier, so if you guys are horny this one is about fucking!" - bassist Jon Walker was hit in the head by a bottle.

Seemingly unbothered by the blow his singer consoled him afterwards "I know how you feel", although the bassist laughed it saying "I didn't get knocked out, I got off lightly."

The band then followed this with the first of two new songs that were so fresh, the group confirmed to NME.COM they hadn't even sorted the titles out yet.

The first new song they played had the working title 'Nine In The Afternoon' and sounded more jaunty and piano led then their beat-enhanced earlier tracks.

After crowd favourites 'But It's Better If You Do’ and 'I Write Sins Not Tragedies', Panic! At The Disco then covered The Band's track 'The Weight', playing a pumped-up version of the classic.

The band then played their second new track, again with a working title, 'Middle Of Summer’ which proved a rocky, keyboard led stomper.

Thanking the crowd for being "so well behaved" Urie and co then wrapped their set up with 'Build God, Then We'll Talk'.

Panic! At The Disco played:

'The Only Difference Between Martyrdom And Suicide Is Press Coverage'
'Time To Dance'
‘London Beckoned Songs About Money’
'Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off'
'Nine In The Afternoon' (working title)
'But It's Better If You Do’
'I Write Sins Not Tragedies'
'The Weight'
‘I Constantly Thank God For Esteban'
'Middle Of Summer’ (working title)
'Build God, Then We'll Talk'
