The St Albans band rock the Tuborg Stage
Arriving onstage at 5.30pm [BST], drummer Rob Rolfe – who was wearing nothing but a white vest and white Y-fronts with red piping – walked to the front of the Tuborg Stage to cheers from the crowd.
The band admitted to the full tent that they were “Download‘s worst-kept secret” after news of their performance was leaked on internet forums and their MySpace page.
Playing in front of a large illustrated white banner bearing the band’s name, frontman Rou Reynolds leapt into the crowd during the middle of the their second song, ‘No Sssweat’.
Held aloft by the audience, the green-shorts-wearing singer proceeded to sing the song while crowd surfing.
Enter Shikari played a number of songs from their forthcoming second album, ‘Common Dreads’, out on June 15, including the title track and ‘Hectic’.
