Biffy Clyro Blow Up Big At Reading Festival

(Gibson) Scottish trio Biffy Clyro had the honor of headlining the last night of this year's Reading Festival on August 25. It was the first time the band appeared at the festival as headliners on the Main Stage, and they seemed very excited by the honor, thanking the crowd throughout the set.

The band certainly didn't spare any expenses, putting on a show that was full of pyrotechnics from start to finish. The 21 song set, which is a lot for a festival gig, contained songs from all of the band's 6 albums, starting with "Different People" from this year's Opposites album, and wrapping up with the song "Mountains" from 2009's Only Revolutions.

The set slowed down for a bit with Clyro singer Simon Neil playing "Machines" with just an acoustic guitar. The main set ended in true Jimi Hendrix fashion, with Neil setting fire to his guitar at the end of the song using a flare. more on this story
