We may be approaching the end of the summer and most festivals may be out of the way but there's always time to sit down, kick back and enjoy some good music at the Reading Festival. I'm sure you will soon understand why we have this live thread from myself - you see, headlining on the night of the 28th is a certain band called Muse! Hurrah! But this is no ordinary headlining act for the trio from Teignmouth. To celebrate 10 years of it's fine existance, Muse have confirmed they shall be performing the entirity of their second album Origin of Symmetry and it will be awesome. I promise.

Muse have a very fine reputation for their live ability, and are world class at what they do on stage. Yet you'll rarely see them perform their older stuff, with maybe 2 or 3 songs from a 20 song setlist that are the same songs being performed at every gig. It's fair enough, bands move on and you accept that, but the fact they're playing this entire album is just kind of surreal to an uberfan like myself. Songs like Hyper Music, Darkshines and Screenager the band haven't really played in 7 or 8 years and are nothing like what you'd expect from 'modern' Muse, so it'll be utterly fascinating to see how the band dip back into their history. As it stands, it seems they have the full 2 hour headlining slot so expect an hour of Origin of Symmetry followed by an hour of their biggest hits. And also Guiding Light. I'm ridiculously excited for this!!

But of course! There is lots more than that Muse band of which I have mentioned a few times here and there in occasional passing!

On the night of the 27th, the BBC will be showing Pulp's set as well as The Strokes and Janes' Addiction too so there's a little bit of everything in there really. I've never been a huge Pulp fan but Jarvis Cocker makes me laugh, whereas The Strokes are a very good band to watch live as far as I know. On the night of the 28th, before Muse's headlining set you'll find stuff from the wonderful Elbow being broadcast too following their excellent Glastonbury set, and on both nights highlights from bands such as Interpol, Bombay Bicycle Club, Madness, Two Door Cinema Club and others will be broadcast too. Like I say, something for everyone! Elbow's stuff at Glastonbury really made me realise how good they are and got me into their newest album really very much, so I'm looking forward to seeing them again.

Below you'll find everything that's being shown, courtesy of BBC3. You can also find plenty of information on the BBC website as to how you can tune in on the radio or on TV for Reading Festival stuff. Feel free to join in with the comments!

    wayhey, pulp. it's like listening to absolute 90's, only live.

    wayhey, pulp. it's like listening to absolute 90's, only live.

    kind of feels like watching a couple of dads who've had a few too many after a wedding :)

    The build up video reminded me of just how many catchy singles they did though.

  • Lukeh27/08/2011 at 20:06

    jarvis is brilliant though :)

  • Lukeh27/08/2011 at 20:11

    Oh my god! The amount of times I've heard this song and I've never known it was pulp...

    ...O.O

  • Mr C27/08/2011 at 20:11

    after glasto and itunes live, i figured we were done for live gigs this year. yay for the beeb broadcasting this.

    they usually show the sunday of reading, seems this year they're going for both days and red button coverage which is awesome.

    never, ever, ever show leeds though which is odd.

  • Lukeh27/08/2011 at 20:13

    he is probably looking after Nina working what the very odd twitches are that his spidey giggles sense is picking up on

    pulp are so retro they don't have wireless mics.

  • Lukeh27/08/2011 at 20:14

    I love it when gigs like these are at night time. Just always feels better than outdoor gigs with daylight shining on

  • Lukeh27/08/2011 at 20:15

    pulp are so retro they don't have wireless mics.

    they're bringing back the 90's like it's 1999

    Dunno about anyone else but I'm really enjoying Pulp. More than I imagined I would.

  • Mr C27/08/2011 at 20:49

    not sure i've seen them live before. they're very good.

  • Lukeh27/08/2011 at 20:49

    heh

  • Windymiller27/08/2011 at 20:56

    That is some serious amplification! I live between Arborfiled and Swallowfield. Cheaper than tickets - watching on BBC3 and hearing it live. Shame about the delay Jarvis.

    We've been watching the amazing BBC Comedy Prom hosted by Tim Minchin on BBC2.

    If you can get it, the radio version is longer, but well worth a look on iPlayer

  • Andy Taylor27/08/2011 at 21:46

    We used to be able to hear sometimes in Calcot to the west of Reading. That was the other side of a large hill too.

    oh nooo!! i missed it! i've been wanting to watch it for ages!

  • Andy Taylor27/08/2011 at 21:51

    oh nooo!! i missed it! i've been wanting to watch it for ages!

    iPlayer? I do recommend getting the radio broadcast too as it's got more Tim Minchin in it.

  • lou27/08/2011 at 21:54

    iPlayer? I do recommend getting the radio broadcast too as it's got more Tim Minchin in it.

    shall do both. Love Mr Minchin to pieces, I'm not sure what would happen if i saw him live.. i think explode may be a good description. Shall have to check it out. thank you for reminding me Andy :)

    Unexpected dom and matt on BBC3!!

  • Mr C28/08/2011 at 18:35

    it's started already? damn, not ready.

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 18:36

    it's started already? damn, not ready.

    The coverage has of Reading stuff but it's just highlights of acts for now and random interviews. Elbow will be on live at 8 though.

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 18:37

    Oh lord, Muse have already been told to step back by health and safety. They've been told to take off 15 flamethrowers!

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 18:38

    Oh lord, Muse have already been told to step back by health and safety. They've been told to take off 15 flamethrowers!

    Although they're not doing the spaceship over the crowd tonight

    (this is all entirely serious as well)

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 18:59

    I'm quite looking forward to Elbow, thought they were really good at Glasto

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 19:18

    thousands and thousands of arms waving is quite hypnotic... maybe thats all part of their plan...

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 19:44

    As good as they are, Elbow are making me a little bit sleepy now. Is it 10:20 yet?

    Just found out there is an AMAZING special guest during Muse's Reading show. Oh my. #bbcreadingfest

    I have heard NOTHING on this.

  • lou28/08/2011 at 20:51

    Greg James knows all.

    he does! It's fun watching forums get all upset and confused that they don't know :D

  • lou28/08/2011 at 20:54

    they're gonna find out in half an hour. surely they can wait?

    Exactly!

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:21

    muse time! :D

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:23

    ooooh a look back at the band and everything.

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:24

    ooooh a look back at the band and everything.

    isn't this from the documentry?

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:24

    isn't this from the documentry?

    it looks very familiar from the teignmouth gig stuff, yep.

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:26

    Matt's voice had deepened a lot since the early albums so it'll be quite intriguing to see how he deals with the songs tonight that the band haven't played since 2003 or 2002...

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:27

    Fern always looks so stylish.

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:27

    here we go!!!

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:28

    I can't get away with knowing what song is coming up next tonight as the first hour is going to be the album played in order live :D

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:29

    oh my god at the stage!! how cool..

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:32

    that is ALOT of plectrums.

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:32

    It;s nice to see the gliteratti too.. (his guitar)

    Matt threw it at Dom after a gig last year...

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:33

    Matt threw it at Dom after a gig last year...

    erm... right?

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:33

    erm... right?

    They do that every so often, Dom and Matt destroy the drums and stuff.

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:34

    They do that every so often, Dom and Matt destroy the drums and stuff.

    ah. right..i'm not gonna ask.

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:34

    wooooooo!!

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:34

    Ahh I love Bliss live.. soo soo much...

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:37

    the next two songs after this are gonna be really, really weird to hear. Space Dementia will be really cool but Hyper Music in particular is nothing like Muse would do these days... and it hasn't been done since 2003 live. Exciting though :D

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:38

    Why does he have so many plectrums. i count 8/9.. and why display them like that. not sure i've ever see anyone line them up like that before.

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:38

    chris' bass has lights on it! cooool..

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:39

    Why does he have so many plectrums. i count 8/9.. and why display them like that. not sure i've ever see anyone line them up like that before.

    matt always just has them like that, never really bothered to find out why. Cant remember seeing a gig where he hasn't had them up like that

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:40

    hmmm.. they skipped space dementia and hyper music...

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:40

    oohh i know this one!

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:40

    Well thats really annoying. :(

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:41

    Well thats really annoying. :(

    maybe they couldn't do them for the reasons you said?..

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:42

    maybe they couldn't do them for the reasons you said?..

    Looks like the BBC have cut both songs out as this is about 15 minutes behind I believe.

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:43

    probably not as popular with folk like me.

    Seeing as this is supposed to be a celebration of the album, poor show from the beeb...

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:44

    Oh wow they cut out the ENTIRE rest of OOS. That is horrific.

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:45

    Seeing as this is supposed to be a celebration of the album, poor show from the beeb...

    just remember there are far more fans like me who know the popular singles than the strange odd ones from the album.. They may be stuck for time too. who knows. :) don't let it spoil it for you

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:46

    Oh wow they cut out the ENTIRE rest of OOS. That is horrific.

    well, they aren't usually big on other festivals that aren't Glasto so you're kinda lucky they're broadcasting it at all ;) it may be on the website after?

    Sorry, this has completely ruined it for me.

    I hope everyone else enjoys it though if anyone else is watching it but this is geniunely heartbreaking.

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:47

    Sorry, this has completely ruined it for me.

    i'm sure it'll be available somewhere?

    It is an over reaction but when you've been promised it'll be fully shown for weeks and weeks...

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:54

    Who promised? They make editorial decisions on the night and they have an entire festival to fit in.

    When they announced it they said it'd all be shown on the beeb tonight.

    ugh, I'm sorry. I can't help but be disappointed. it is still very awesome, but there is honestly no words to describe how much I'd been looking forward to seeing the album tonight.

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:55

    I'm just gonna move on and enjoy the rest of the set though. Stuff happens. :)

  • lou28/08/2011 at 21:57

    It is an over reaction but when you've been promised it'll be fully shown for weeks and weeks...

    they may show the other songs a bit later.. or the full thing on the red button. don't give up on seeing the whole thing yet. you'll be able to see/ hear it somehow am sure.

    They may have cut out the less popular well known songs so they can fit in the ones people like me know. Cause tbh if you hadn't have told me it was such an iconic gig i wouldn't have known... and i bet half the people there didn't either. They will probably put the other bits up either later in the coverage, on red button, or on the site. they'll have had to record it anyway.

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 21:57

    Hysteria works so so so well on a huge audience scale, goosebumps every.single.time. <3

    They're all definitely being recorded so I'm gonna hold out for hope. No point in bringing down the rest of it being awesome tbh.

    BBC had a controversial moment cutting the vast majority of the album being celebrated tonight causing much uproar amongst muse fans across the interwebs :)

    they've been saying this is their last tour for about a year. they just keep adding more dates... it's like they've said they're stopping but keep putting it off..

    they've been saying this is their last tour for about a year. they just keep adding more dates... it's like they've said they're stopping but keep putting it off..

    This is what I mean, I assumed they stopped doing stuff and Mike Skinner was doing his own thing now. Apparently not :)

  • lou28/08/2011 at 22:51

    I think I may have saw them earlier actually. I'm not sure

    They had lots of hawaaian women on stage with them, and the lead singer really reallly enjoyed dancing. Didnt catch the bands name but was that them?

  • lou28/08/2011 at 23:01

    They had lots of hawaaian women on stage with them, and the lead singer really reallly enjoyed dancing. Didnt catch the bands name but was that them?

    yeah that's them, singing hawaiian air i should imagine. That's their big mid set number usually at festivals this year. I didn't manage to catch it earlier but their amazing live. thinking i may need to invest in a hawaiian shirt for their gig so i don't feel left out.

  • Lukeh28/08/2011 at 23:02

    From what I saw it looks like you're going to have a very, very fun gig with plenty of dancing. Sounds perfect for you :)

  • lou28/08/2011 at 23:09

    may not have been... but i suspect it was one of his little tweets put out there to cause a reaction but play a little joke :) bless him.

  • Amy28/08/2011 at 23:09

    I told my friend that I'd watch Muse's set since she's there but uh, it was the middle of the night.

  • Amy28/08/2011 at 23:12

    read back through the comments and you'll get all the info you need to know to fool her

    What I get from the comments is that the BBC skipped half their songs and if I say 'ooh they didn't play half them' she'd know i was lying :D

  • lou28/08/2011 at 23:13

    Cage the Elephant! such a good album!
