Biffy Clyro With drummer Ben Johnston at V Festival Stafford show in 2009

With drummer Ben Johnston providing a simple driving beat for much of the track at V Festival, the song was hinged on Neil’s chiming guitar lines. The singer played his lead notes while singing the vocal parts to the song, until a change of pace midway through which saw the band finish the track instrumentally.Follow-up song ‘Living Is A Problem Because Everybody Dies’ had many audience members singing along with bassist Johnston’s backing vocals.Some audience members were distracted midway through the performance, when several people decided to throw their drinks at another crowd member who was sitting on a friend’s shoulders.Ignoring the scuffle, the band continued their set, with a sweat-drenched Neil playing a solo version of ‘Machines’ on an acoustic guitar, much to the crowd’s delight.Despite the band playing their set in broad daylight, they put on an impressive lightshow set against the stage’s black backdrop during ‘Get Fucked Stud’.Biffy Clyro’s last song – Number 5 UK single ‘Mountains’ – proved to be the biggest crowd pleaser, with the band playing an impassioned version of the 2008 track that ended with drummer Johnston throwing his sticks into the audience in celebratory fashion.Buy & Sell V Festival Tickets through One stop shop to catch your favourite event Tickets like V Festival Tickets, Guaranteed, Fast and Secure!
