My Chemical Romance is keen to have a better time of things at the Reading and Leeds Festivals this weekend - after being booed and having objects thrown at them last time.
Referring to the 2006 experience during a Daily Star interview, singer Gerard Way said the group is performing at a venue where "not everyone has approved of us in the past".
However, he said, this is the challenge they need, stating: "We haven't felt like we've had anything to prove in a long time, so maybe this is the right time to do that."
One way of doing this will not be through seeking to match the spectacle of fellow headliners Muse but in playing "favourite" tunes the fans will like, he said.
Those heading to the festival
with their tents
today will be able to enjoy a wide range of bands, which also include Pulp, Noah and the Whale, Elbow and We are the Ocean.
