Agreed, I thought that was a bit unnecessary but a great show though
I hope and expect that won't become a regular feature! Thought it was slightly embarrassing actually. Sweary without much reason.

It was a feature in Wales, although personally I don't really mind it, Song 2 is a bit silly anyway

I've no qualms with the swearing - how uptight must one be to take issue with a swear word? - it's the just the sort of beery, football chant (and I love football) thing that I find distasteful. Blur (well, Damon) should've left that behind years ago. Mind you he is a man of nearly 50 who still wears an earring and sometimes can be seen in a baseball cap with a ganja leaf on the front. :lol:

They did something like that in Blackpool but to my ears it sounded like "ey up, ey up, we're the fucking north". Odd.

I have no issues with swearing (I could make a sailor blush) but the whole 'here we go, here we go' thing is just a bit... Tacky? Especially because it seems to be becoming part of the set list now - maybe if it were spurof the moment I Would understand better, but if it's 'rehearsed' there's not much point to it?

Agree with you completely. Plus, it sounded very... awkward.

I certainly don't care if someone says FUCK. :lol:

It's context. When Damon came out last night and said to the crowd: 'Let's fucking have this!!' that felt like a real rallying cry and just the sort of thing you'd say when you're pumped up. But that Song 2 thing in Paris, he even introduced it as a new bit for the crowd to join in with. Precisely - too pre-planned, too awkward.

I think the Here we, here we... chant has obviously been present after the Glasgow gig. Damon and Graham had a right good laugh when the crowd were bouncing and singing that. Doesnt work as well anywhere else.

Me neither, I dind't liked the "here we go.." thing in Paris. Actually, I didn't understood well what he was saying so I was like... :?: :?: :?: :?:
But anyway, I found it a little strained, I would have enjoyed song 2 more without it.
For the earring, marijuiana leaf, and so on things that Damon is still doing in his fifties, I looove it!! Love silly Damon, it's not forced, it's really him, and i love to see this childish side in a grown-up man! It so fresh, and he's a rockstar, not a prime minister!! :lol: 8-)
