Travis have played Cornwall under shooting stars.

They have performed an exclusive gig at the Eden Project for Pirate FM listeners.

As the Perseids meteor shower started they went outside - and played "Why Does It Always Rain on Me?"

Andy Dunlop from the band joked: "It's like a firework display - it's like Glastonbury."

It turns out the song already has a connection to the Duchy.

You can see the Tamar and Bodmin Moor make a cameo towards the end of the original video for the song below.

Lead singer Fran Healy remembers it well: "We went over a bridge today, over the river - at the end of the video we're on a raft heading down that river into the sunset. It brought back lots of beautiful memories to us."

And he was bowled over by the biomes: "I think it's one of the coolest places we've ever done any show. Because it's quite a famous place in itself, it's super futuristic. It feels a bit like Silent Running, that movie. We're thrilled to be here, thanks for having us."

The down to earth band who have a new album due out next week said they had been looked after incredibly well on their trip to the Duchy: "We went into the dressing room and people were like, 'Is this alright for you?' and we were going, 'Look, we've played in some of the worst places on the planet. This is paradise. There are no nasty smells.'"
