2017.08.27 - Reading Festival, Reading, UK

Recommended Posts

Any guesses for the setlist, or is it just going to be Glastonbury 2016 with Dig Down added?

They've not promised anything special, but suggested they might keep "one or two" of the rarer requests from Shepherd's Bush around.

So having missed out in the early sales for SBE I grabbed a Reading ticket for consolation... managed to get an SBE anyway in the forum sale so nownim doing both! Now wondering what do we expect to carry over from last night?

 

I'm guessing Showbiz is a dead cert. given Matt's comments. Perhaps Assassin also? And I'd love to see the New Born riffs and Yes Please but that's probably asking too much!

Since yesterday I've been wondering about the same thing. I was really sad that I was not fast enough in the sale and I missed all future opportunities on SBE tickets. Seeing the instagram livestream got me really excited for Reading and my expectations are now way too high and I'm bound to be disappointed. :LOL:

 

After Matt's comment about Showbiz coming back I am expecting this and will be more than disappointed if they won't play it. I hope he will keep his promise. I would also love Assassin, MM, Dead Star, Fury and/or B&H. Easily or Glorious would be awesome but I don't think that those are very likely. Hell, I guess I will freak out if any of last night's songs will be played at Reading.

 

I am hoping for 2-3 songs from last night which I don't think is too much to ask and doable even though only a fraction of the crowd will be diehard fans. My guesses are Showbiz, Assassin, B&H and/or New Born.

I will have a look at what they're gonna play at Belfast and Leeds. I think that this might be a good idea of what to expect. If they get some songs from last night, I think Reading should be safe as well. Or at least I hope so.

 

I just hope that something will stick around from last night. There are no more excuses for them to go back to the standard setlists.

I'm coming all the way from Finland and have already spent 400€+ on this(and I got my old man to come with me as well, so double that), but if they play Showbiz... it's allll worth it.

Are there any hints about who the special guest Matt asked to play with them is?

 

I saw one rumour floating around about it being AC/DC's Brian Johnson earlier but I don't think its an especially reliable one given I saw it in a YouTube comment section.

Stage times app says Muse are doing a 1hr35 set from 9:55 ending 11:30.

They'll invite Brian Johnson and play a Jet song.

That would be quite cool in a weird way.

Hoping we get Glorious on Sunday night, one of my favourite songs and so damn jealous SB got it Saturday night. Also Fury... but one can hope.

Massively doubt Glorious unfortunately, think Matt said nowt too mental on Twitter. Showbiz seems down - other than that I'd say one or two of New Born, B&H, Citizen, Assassin or Dead Star.

I can only see them playing one of the ones they're more comfortable with - Reading will be a live broadcast. Bet they rotate the one they do play and mix it up a bit for Leeds.

I dreamt that the special guest was Morrissey. Sounded pretty cool actually.

Anyone know if they're still showing stages live online? I forgot to check Kasabian last night. That way there's surely no risk of any rarity being cut from a terrestrial TV broadcast on BBC4

Judging by the time slot I think there was a 30 minute delay or something?

It's so annoying btw that the Showbiz falsetto at Leeds was perfect, because I just know that if we get a proshot of Reading we will be annoyed for years that it was just slightly better at Leeds.

Usually the live stream is live as they go on, then the TV is delayed... So hopefully one of them will be complete (it might be anyway)

There's usually a bit of a delay for them to edit out anything inappropriate/cut back to the presenters during one of the best songs/have the band's management veto broadcasting one of the songs for whatever reason (I'm pretty sure it was Muse management who didn't want all of the OoS set to be broadcast because it wasn't perfect).

Just watched Kasabian set last night, and if the crowd is anything like that it's not looking good. Never seen such a dead crowd for them, only really coming alive during Fire. Really strange atmosphere

Just watched Showbiz from Leeds.

 

Yup, definitely pips SBE. Matt's just about flawless throughout, yes he has to cut a couple of the chest notes short in the verses but that's fine.
