Wanting to pay homage to British music and its culture, the band’s frontman Tyler Joseph thanked those in attendance for letting he and bandmate Josh Dun be a part of this year’s Reading Festival.
“We wanna thank you as a couple of Americans. Thanks for letting us come across the pond and play at your festival,” Joseph told the main stage crowd, which included Billie Eilish watching from the wings. “We have such a deep respect for your musical culture, your festival culture over here. For you to let us be a part of that, it really means a lot to us.”
He added: “So this next one I dedicate to you as a thank you note,” before launching into the opening chords of Oasis’ 1996 hit ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’.
