RHCP close Reading Saturday Night With Aplomb

Red Hot Chili Peppers tonight (August 25) bring Carling Weekend: Reading to a close with style.

The California funk-rock band return to th UK for first show since their Earl's Court residency last year.

Bringing on the hits, 'Californication', 'Scar Tissue', 'The Zephyr Song' - Anthony Keidis and co croon through their last few albums 'Californication' and 'By The Way' - ignoring most of their back catalogue.

Bigging up Arcade Fire who are on before them tonight- Keidis tells us he "loves them".

Second day of the Reading end of this weekend's Carling Festival has been a sunny blast.

Highlights today have been Dinosaur Jr - Mscis simply blew the crowd away with superb musicianship.

Today's Main stage has been great overall, Eagles Of Death Metal and The Shins both proved they can cut it with a sunstroked hungover crowd.

Tomoroow's headliners here at Reading are Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails and The Hold Steady.

Also we have a musical colour injection of Klaxons, LCD soundsystem and CSS all playing tomoorow too.

Great combination!

Also Uncut favourite Devendra Banhart is hosting an new album preview party on board a riverboat tomorrow afternoon, ahead of his performance on the NME/ Radio 1 stage. will be bringing you all the news and reviews of the shows as they happen tomorrow - the festival's last day - Check the Uncut Festival's Blog here.
