Panic! At The Disco singer Brendan Urie says he is ‘feeling good’ after being bottled onstage at the Reading Festival.

The emo band were just one song into their set on the Main Stage when Urie was hit by a missile in the head.

The blow knocked him out for a few seconds, after which he recovered enough to continue with the set.

He told the NME afterwards: “I’m doing I'm doing alright now, I could be way worse, I could be dead.

"What I remember is I got hit, got knocked out, woke up and finished the set! I was out for a couple of seconds, I guess. Then we played some music, it was good. I've got a bruise, but looks good. It makes me look rugged and tough."

The band eventually played a well-received set, which once again featured a cover of Radiohead’s ‘Karma Police.’
