Anyone know of anywhere where I can the full main stage set, cos I know about the 33minute highlights, just if anyone can help, it'd be appreciated

I particularly enjoyed the almost rap delivery of one line in Reasons.

Was a really good day, had a great time. Frank's two sets were massive highlights, also enjoyed Death from Above, Muse (briefly) and the Streets, simply for how god-awful he was. Oh, Enter Shikari were great for the 15 minutes we caught them too.

Campsite looked pretty grim in places.

I have been thinking long and hard about this, and I have decided that the weirdest thing about seeing Frank on the main stage is that it wasn't weird at all. It seemed like exactly the right place for him to be.

Agreed, he definitely seemed to 'belong'.

Much as I profess to disliking festivals, I wish I'd been at Reading for this.

Brilliant Brilliant time!

Only Pulp came close for me! And that's saying something seeing as i saw so many bands during the weekend!
Weirdly, i found at every gig i was at, i was singing If ever i stray, think a feww people may of been confused by that!

The Lockup stage show was so unbelievably special, and seeing frank singing and grinning, is that just brilliant or what?! don't get that with anyone else!

Cheers Frank, see you in November!

The main stage show was great, but the lock up was very very special. I was slap bang in the middle of the barrier with my mate and some other cool people from HWM onwards. A real highlight for me too - possibly the best I've ever seen FT live. And that's saying something!

The Somebody to Love cover was hilarious. Loved the letters from the lighting. Both sets were fantastic; the second being very special.

Feeling very ill after Reading, but had the time of my life.
Ended up getting to the arena entrance at 8 o'clock on the Sunday, as i saw there were already hundreds of Muse fans queuing when i went to the toilet, and i wanted a good spot on the barrier for Frank's set. Managed to get myself a spot on the barrier. Loved the main stage set! Thought it was amazing how many people sat down during photosynthesis.
The lockup set just blew me away. It was definetley the best set i went to at Reading. I ended up going to see Muse after, and they were awful in my opinion. Really regret not seeing Flogging Molly.

My mate said pretty much the same. I wouldn't say it was the best I have seen him, but it was up there certainly. Maybe top 15?? Possibly Top 10.

Somebody To Love by Queen? Man, I love that song so much. Sorry to have missed it!

EDIT: Just watched it on a crappy recording on youtube and even that was enough to give me goosebumps. Can't even imagine how amazing it would have been actually being there.

Yeah, it just really came together. Crazy crowd, brilliant setlist, was with a great friend who was seeing Frank for the first time and he loved it... Would be interesting to hear your top 10 / 15 shows seeing as you've been to so many!

Oh, and I really disagree with the person who though Muse were awful, everybody we spoke to afterwards enjoyed it even if they only knew 1 or 2 songs off OOS. Probably could have done without so mush off thier latest album though.

Saw both of Frank's sets. They were both great in their own ways.

I saw a lot of the bands on the mainstage try and do the whole "get down and jump" thing, by far Frank was the most successful in getting people to actually do it! And I can say that as I was near the middle/back section of the crowd and everyone around me got down and jumped. Was Great!

Yeah the Lock Up set was special. Loved the Somebody To Love Cover, left you with such a great feeling.
