The band, led by Jonathan Davis, kicked off their set with ‘Rotting In Vain’, which appears on their latest album, ‘The Serenity Of Suffering‘. The record was released in October 2016.
After ‘Here To Stay’, Davis asked the crowd: “What the fuck is up, Reading? It sounds like you’re having a fucked up time up here.”
He continued: “Thank you so much, it’s amazing to be here today with all these beautiful, insane, English-looking motherfuckers. I am pumped up as a motherfucker right now.” He then led the audience in raising their middle fingers and chanting “fuck that”. The band then launched into ‘Y’All Want A Single’.
Before ‘Shoots And Ladders’, Davis walked off stage, picked up some bagpipes and came back on stage playing them. During ‘Coming Undone’ a couple of songs later, the group burst into a brief refrain of Queen‘s ‘We Will Rock You’.
The set came to a conclusion with ‘Blind’ and ‘Freak On A Leash’. After the latter, Davis said: “Reading, thank you guys so much. Y’all were a beautiful, amazing crowd and we’ll be back some time to play for y’all.”
