Doing keepie-ups, running the barrier, climbing billboards, destroying the stage and bouncing on a trampoline, mentally unsound frontman Rivers Cuomo made an argument for being locked up with an insane performance that had old and brand new fans alike amazed.

Opening with rock anthem 'Hash Pipe', the band also flew through oldies 'The Sweater Song', 'Surfwax America' and 'Say It Ain't So' before shocking the ever-growing crowd with brilliant takes on Wheatus' 'Teenage Dirtbag', MGMT's 'Kids' and Lady Gaga's 'Poker Face', with Rivers donning a blonde wig.

To finish it all off in style they played fan favourite 'Buddy Holly', with the crazed singer running into the crowd and causing utter carnage as fans charged to get a dance with the man of the moment.

Fan, Jennifer Johnston, 24 rated them extremely highly: "Marks out of 10? 15!"
