The Virgins play 'last show for a while' at Leeds Festival
The Virgins played one of their "last shows for a while" as they greeted early revellers to the NME/Radio 1 Stage at the Leeds Festival today (August 30).

The Brooklyn band performed tracks entirely from their 2008 self-titled debut, including single 'Private Affair' and 'Hey Hey Girl'.

Arriving onstage dressed in a white headband, frontman Donald Cumming shouted, "What's up Leeds?", before his band kicked off their set with 'Teen Lovers'.

The singer later praised the size of the crowd that turned out to see the group before 'Love Is Colder Than Death'.

As they wrapped up their gig with 'One Week Of Danger', he added: "Leeds, thank you so much for coming to see us. We are The Virgins and this is our last show for a while."

The Virgins played:

'Teen Lovers'
'Radio Christiane'
'She's Expensive'
'Hey Hey Girl'
'Love Is Colder Than Death'
'Murder'
'Rich Girls'
'Private Affair'
'One Week Of Danger'
