Imagine Dragons treated fans at Reading Festival to a Blur cover earlier tonight (August 27).
The Las Vegas band performed ‘Song 2’ midway through their 13-song set at Little John’s Farm, which took place on the main stage immediately before headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Though Imagine Dragons covered the classic Blur hit frequently in 2013 and 2014, this is only the second time they have played ‘Song 2’ this year, according to Setlist.fm.
Meanwhile, Slaves dedicated their cover of ‘Shutdown’ to Boy Better Know during a secret set at Reading earlier tonight. The Tunbridge Wells duo had performed on the Main Stage earlier in the day, but appeared again on the BBC Introducing Stage at 7:15pm to play a handful of older songs and the Skepta cover.
Yesterday EDM duo Jack Ü debuted their eagerly-anticipated collaboration with Florence and the Machine during their set at Reading Festival. The track, reportedly titled ‘Constellations Around My Heart’, has since made its way online.
Also last night, Disclosure’s Guy Lawrence joined Foals on stage during the Oxford band’s headline set. Foals closed out the Friday night of the festival with one of their oldest songs ‘Two Steps Twice’, enlisting Lawrence to help drummer Jack Bevan with the percussion.
