Re: Demon Days... Oh My God.

If he's already onboard with a new Gorillaz album then plus GBQ and his new musical, I'll be surprised if there's more Blur dates get added to the tour.

Quite weird that they're touring the Magic Whip less than they're tour of 2012 and 2013.

Apparently he did a 45 minute version of "Gene By Gene".

Re: 21 box set - the dvds

Yeah including Starshaped seems like such an obvious thing to do. Sucks that they didn't.

The Magic Whip is down to 56 from 36, in its tenth week. I reckon it'll have one more week and then drop off the charts.

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

That and the 2009 and 2012 tours kinda diluted the excitement (not for me, but for the general public). If 2015 had been Blur's first reunion, the anticipation for the Magic Whip would have been much higher.

Re: The Magic Whip Commercial Expectations

I'm not going to buy another digital copy of OO as a stand alone song, purely to improve it's chart position. I did with Go Out, because it came a long time before the album, with the others being released/leaked quite close to the album release. exactly. Which is precisely the reason why they NEED...

Re: Ong Ong - Single

I think most fans would. If Blur formed now, we wouldn't have all their awesome b-sides which is what, another 40 songs?

It'll be nominated at next year's Brits and hopefully Mercury music prize which will boost sales.

I'm quite surprised it hasn't had a 7 inch release. Under the Westway got both a CD and a vinyl release.

Chuffed to bits that Ong Ong has made the Radio 2 main playlist. They're never gonna get on Radio 1 these days so that's brilliant

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I'm very pleasantly surprised that Madison Square Garden tickets sold so quickly. Isn't that a huge arena, like the O2 in London? Awesome.
