Fightstar Win Over Reading Audience After Being Bottled
Apparently Charlie Simpson’s days with pop-rockers Busted made his on-stage performance at the Carling Weekend: Reading Festival a nightmare at first with new band Fightstar. “They walked on and were met with a barrage of plastic bottles – some of them full. Charlie got hit in the face,” a witness told NME.com. “The band brushed it off and kicked off their set regardless.” The band then performed tracks from their debut album ‘Paint Your Target’, gradually winning over the crowd. “They definitely won the crowd over though and they stopped throwing bottles,” another concert attendee said.
