For Manic Street Preachers this is a homecoming of sorts. It is here that they had a farrago with the bouncers when they were chased off-site in '92. It
is here, within the irony Of a scruffy patch Of green barely on the outskirts of a nothing town, that they have somehow found a home. There is no reason for the Manics to be playing here tonight - they have toured this set too long; they should be sequestered away working on the next album - but Reading obviously means something to them and they reinvest their performance with all the passion that fatigue had sapped from their most recent shows.
