On 25th August 2007 at Reading, Angels and Airwaves were set to play on the Main Stage at 16:30 GMT. Sections of the audience, which had all seemed very supportive of all of the acts since Paramore,suddenly changed their mood. Bottles half-filled with water and Carling beer were thrown at lead singer Tom DeLonge (who apparently had gotten drunk prior to going on stage) as well as the rest of the band. During gaps between songs, Tom expressed his opinion of the Reading fans openly, declaring that the band and himself had "...fucked all of their Moms.", and also told the crowd several times "You're Fucking Welcome!" despite the fact that some audience members were still cheering for them.The band completed their set, despite the onslaught of bottles from the audience and were given the One Finger Salute by a number of audience members as they left the stage.
