Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I don't think they'd have anything to worry about. I know 2009 was the pinnacle in terms of emotions but 6 years later with the addition of new material...they'd be loved. 2009 all over again. I'm sure they'll be asked and after the reception they've received at every show so far I think they could...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Foo Fighters have officially cancelled Glastonbury. But I think it's very unlikely that Blur will play in their place.

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

I did say when the gigs were first announced that it was just a matter of waiting for cheapo Hyde Park tickets! at least it's for charity this time.

I did say that you wouldn't find much resistance amongst this crowd :lol:

But really they are the best I've ever seen them at the moment. So I'd recommend anyone go to a show!

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

there might be a blur presale between now and then? usually there's some kinda corporate presale first and then a 'fan club' one a couple of days later

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

Looking at the map for blur there is a security barrier making a front pit, Might be wristbands for the first few thousand people. I hope so. That was why I paid extra tenner for priority. Get in early, get a wristband and relax. Then not put up with a load of pissheads forcing there way past me to...

Re: Gig: Llandudno, 11 June

I'm not sure Damon speech about not connecting with Wales in past years helped much though. I think he was just apologising for not having played in Wales for years - not suggesting that they have had a poor response there in the past. And yeah Damon really was putting the effort in to engage the c...

Re: Gig: Llandudno, 11 June

Yeah, crowd was pretty dead. Band sounded great but was let down by the lacklustre audience response. Glasgow definitely the best of the shows.

Re: Gig: Blackpool, 10 June

Feel sorry for the band and the fans at this one. I'm glad that it did get dragged back to where it should've been. Was it just unlucky, or should it have been prevented? It's not like Blur fans are the most physically mental for a gig either. It should definitely have been prevented. It's not like...
