The Oklahoma band was one of the headliners of the O2 Wireless Festival in London's Hyde Park. Coyne cheered on the England team ahead of Sunday's (25JUN06) match against Ecuador, after he saw USA lose their last game to Ghana in Germany on Thursday (22JUN06). Performing a cover of QUEEN hit BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, Coyne said, "We were told not to play this if the football World Cup wasn't going well. But because it is, we're gonna play it."
