The trio, who recently headlined Reading And Leeds Festival, covered the hit as one of the first performances of the month of live performances.
The month got underway on Thursday with Justin Bieber playing a six-song set from his home in Los Angeles. Bieber covered Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’ and Tupac’s ‘Thugz Mansion’ as well as playing his own songs ‘What Do You Mean?’, ‘Love Yourself’, ‘Cold Water’ and ‘Let Me Love You’. The singer later apologised for his performance, saying: “I don’t usually get nervous, but tonight I was thrown off and I was. Sorry about that.”
OneRepublic and Bieber’s former mentor Usher have since played Live Lounge, while Christine And The Queens is due to play herself on September 13. Clean Bandit were today’s guests and Blossoms feature tomorrow. A full schedule for the month is below.
Biffy Clyro, who start a 10-date tour on November 26 at Dublin’s 3 Arena, have previously covered the likes of Weezer’s ‘Buddy Holly’, Rage Against The Machine’s ‘Killing In The Name’, Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’ and Starship’s ‘We Built This City’.
