Klaxons close NME tent at Reading Festival
There's no repeat of their 2007 crowd size in the NME tent
Alex Fahey - 29 August 2010
Despite the tent being only half full, 'Flashover' was worked through rigorously for the opening track and received
excited applause from the noisey crowd.
'As Above As Below' maintains the frantic start to the set before the synth of 'The Same Space' dropped the intensity of the opening few numbers.
Jamie Reynolds was the first to speak, "Hey Reading," said the frontman, "it seems like the perfect weekend. Let's go back," before the band powered through 'Gravity's Rainbow' creating the first mosh of the set.
When James Righton first speaks to the audience he thanks those in attendance before announcing, "this is 'Golden Skans'." The hit single is then cheered emphatically.
"That was beautiful Reading, thank you," noted Reynolds.
The set relied heavily on the new album 'Surfing The Void' to mixed reaction, 'Twin Flames' received quiet applause when compared older tracks like 'Atlantis To Interzone'.
As has been the theme of the weekend it seems it's the older material that keeps the crowd in NME tent for the closing gig of 2010.
