Best act at Reading 2011
So I’m finally back from Reading (well, I was back on Monday but I’ve basically been asleep until today, walking around in a zombie-like stupor!) and I feel it’s necessary to round up all that gooey-yummy festival goodness via blogpost. Mostly so I can prolong that festival feeling.
I don’t why people ask who was my favourite act at Reading-considering everyone already is extremely aware that I’m a massive MCR fan-it was obviously always going to be MCR! But honestly, their performance on Friday even beat my already staggeringly high expectations! A bunch of friends who came along (mostly so they could witness my own hilarious euphoria of dancing and singing) said it was unexpectedly good because Gerard performed so energetically that everyone was hyped up whether they dug My Chemical Romance or not . Obviously, Brian May coming on stage and playing ‘We Will Rock You’ with MCR was a highlight-and as close as any of us will ever get to seeing Queen live. But for me, it was watching Brian May play ‘The Black Parade’ I felt like it solidified MCR as relevant and awesome rock band, not some passing ‘emo’ fad. When it was all over, I walked around in a stupor, already feeling nostalgic for a moment that had literally just past! I’ve seen MCR five times now, and I can definitely say that Reading 2011 was one of their best yet-I can’t wait for their next UK tour so that they beat their own gig again!
