Yeah but if they had a big screen on in the back with videos there is a chance!

I did read in the terms that the submissions could be used online or as visuals at any gig they wanted

According to setlist.fm...
Go Out
There's No Other Way
Lonesome Street
Badhead
Coffee & TV
Out of Time
Thought I Was a Spaceman
Trimm Trabb
I Broadcast
Trouble in the Message Centre
Beetlebum
Tender
Ong Ong
Parklife
Song 2
To the End
This Is a Low

Stereotypes
Girls & Boys
The Universal
So, still no TATMOU or Mirrorball, Ghost Ship AND My Terracotta Heart dropped, and no sign of Pyongyang or Ice Cream Man. I hope this trend is reversed for Paris and Hyde Park.

And He Thought of Cars, For Tomorrow gone as well by the look of it.

Hopefully at Hyde Park the longer set list will give them room to squeeze in more TMW. I'd be so upset to not hear Pyongyang. Really, I'd love to hear the whole album but I know that's unrealistic. Ice Cream Man is a given for a no show of course plus somewhere between 2 - 3 others I suppose.

You could say it is because it's a festival I suppose, but history shows they like to play the new stuff. Reading 2003 had 12 new songs, Glastonbury 1998 had 8 including Essex Dogs. IOW 2015 has just 5.

Last nights setlist was about just right, 5 new songs and the rest being more greatest hits for a festival crowd is what was needed. People have bought tickets to see Blur at Hyde Park so hopefully a bit more clued up on the songs, I would expect more Magic Whip closer to the Glasgow setlist.

That was actually quite good! (I was a bit weary when opening the link knowing it was Alex on his own ;) )

Liked the bit about the Kool and the Gang baselines and the bit about the barrier most. And who can blame us for going mental at a blur gig...

Boring setlist, too similar to the ones in previous tours. Even though they're great songs, Badhead, Out of Time, Parklife etc need to be gone.

I really don't get it. They've just released their first album in 12 years and after it getting great reviews and good sales they're just gonna play 5 songs off it in festivals? I hope it was just a one time thing because of Damon's sore throat.

I reckon the most recent evictions from the set list were due to that. Think of some of the high-pitched notes in My Terracotta Heart for example.

Strange set list, almost like they have given up on The Magic Whip already.

Think people are being overly critical. It's a festival show, Damon has had his throat issues and ultimately they're not really a properly functioning band - given those circumstances I think nearly half the new album is pretty reasonable!

For now we can hope it's just because it was a festival!
