The Pigeon Detectives get pelted with mud at Oxegen
The Pigeon Detectives were pelted with mud during their afternoon performance on the NME Stage at Oxegen today (July 7).

As singer Matt Bowman launched into ’Take Her Back’ he invited the crowd to throw some mud at him after he earlier stuck a dirty beachball under his white t-shirt.

The singer was in energetic form throughout the set, mounting speakers and leaning to sing into the crowd during ‘Caught In Your Trap’ before he finally stage dived into the audience at the end of their performance.

Earlier he teased the audience when he said: “We’re off to T (In The Park) tomorrow,” before he was greeted with huge boos. “Exactly now you have your chance to prove they're shit compared to you so sing at the top of your voices,” he added before launching into ‘I Found Out’.

During their raucous set, the band played a host of tracks from their debut album ‘Wait For Me’ including hit single ‘Romantic Type’.

The Pigeon Detectives played:

‘You Know I Love You’
‘Romantic Type’
‘Don’t Know How To Say Goodbye’
‘Stop Or Go’
‘I Found Out’
‘Caught In Your Trap’
‘Can’t Control Myself’
‘I’m Always Right’
‘Wait For Me’
‘Take Her Back’
'I'm Not Sorry
