The Futureheads asked the Reading Festival crowd what they thought of Guns N' Roses' controversial set during their Main Stage performance today (August 28) - and were met with a chorus of booing.

After 'Decent Days And Nights', guitarist Ross Millard posed the question, following last night's hour delay.

"So, it's the second day, how's everybody feeling? Rough?" before singer Barry Hyde asked. "How was Guns N' Roses last night? How did that work out?" which sparked the boos.

The band, who played a hits set interspersed with a handful of songs from their recent fourth album 'The Chaos', initiated audience participation throughout the show, including getting the crowd to "bouncy bounce" to 'Skip To The End' and play "the Futureheads' singing game" during 'Hounds Of Love'.

The latter sparked a playful battle in the front of the audience, as the crowd threw wood chips from the ground into the air.

The Futureheads played:

'The Chaos'
'Decent Days And Nights'
'Struck Dumb'
'Heartbeat Song'
'Skip To The End'
'I Can Do That'
'Beginning Of The Twist'
'Carnival Kids'
'Hounds Of Love'
