The Subways break their Oxegen duck

Billy Lunn dives into the crowd during raucous performance

The Subways made their Oxegen debut this afternoon (July 13), as they opened day three on the 02 Stage.

The trio played a raucous set which culminated in singer Billy Lunn stage diving into the crowd.

The band’s set mixed up tracks from their debut album ‘Young For Eternity’ and their 2008 follow-up ‘All Or Nothing’.

Bassist Charlotte Cooper showed her appreciation when she thanked the fans, saying: “This is our first ever Oxegen and you guys have been amazing for us.”

The set culminated in a raucous rendition of early single ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Queen’ which saw Lunn, who was stripped down to his waist, spark off a call and response with the crowd before he dived head first into the fans.

The Subways played:


‘Oh Yeah’



‘I Won’t Let You Down’

‘I Wanna Hear What You’ve Got To Say’


‘With You’

‘Girls And Boys’

‘Rock N Roll Queen’
