Anyone else see the footage last night?
Whilst it looked like they gave an incredible performance their songs seem to lack the killer hooks that Reading headliners normally have in abundance.
The crowd noise was basically non existant. The only thing they seemed to be capable of was a confusing chant of "Ar-Cade-Fire Ar-Cade-Fire" in between songs but which seemed to die out upon reaching the mid point of the set.
It looked like Arcade Fire were a brave choice for the organisers but one which maybe would've been better suited further down the bill or maybe headlining on the Radio 1 tent.
