Muse closed the second day of the Carling: Weekend Reading tonight (August 26) with a stunning hits heavy set.
The three-piece played tracks from ‘Black Holes & Revelations’ including current single ‘Starlight’.
The biggest cheers of the evening, however, were reserved for the classics ‘Plug In Baby’,‘New Born’ and ‘Feeling Good’.
Speaking to NME.COM after coming off stage frontman Matt Bellamy explained the gig had being a special one for his band.
“It was one of those rare gigs where every moment was up,” he said. “We always had this thing where I’d say to band ‘have we made it now?’ and they say ‘Nah, not until we’ve headlined Reading’, that was the thing, now we’ve done it.”
The singer also explained the meaning behind his shirt, on which he’d scrawlled Terror storm.
“Go to Google Video, type in Terror Storm and you’ll find a nice little surprise. It will shed some light on world affairs, put it that way. I rather point you in the direction then preach about it myself.”
‘Knights Of Cydonia’
‘Supermassive Black Hole’
