Gig: Benicassim Festival, 18 Jul 2015

Post by gouranga » 18 Jul 2015, 15:24

There is a radio streaming:

Blur starts 1:00 (GMT +1 -- Spain). But bad vibrations, yesterday no streaming for Noel Gallagher or The Prodigy. Also, Superbock TV channel lamented that Blur did not allow broadcast gig. I miss the old times when i can record Blur' 03 FIB in a cassette, with journalist comments between songs :mrgreen: .

Less restrictions on Blur gigs!! :twisted:

I'm recording but it's my first time!. I'm using a program called Audacity. Radio presenters demand more Magic Whip songs.

At the moment:

Go Out
Theres No Other Way
Lonesome Street
Badhead
Coffee & TV

He Thought of Cars and End Of A Century no played....Newspaper told something about the band going to fly after gig because the sunday they have a private commitment in Paris . Maybe that has affected the setlist.

Some people on twitter saying setlist is boring and just for fans. Well, i'm agree a bit although there are too many Blur haters. Europe is not America or Asia. Here, there are a huge tour history and fanbase. I dont understand why they only play four The Magic Whip Songs!. They think festivals are full of young people who needs discover Beetlebum? Europe is different and remember Hyde Parks, World Tour 2012...Blur sounds brilliant, better than other era but im not excited with this kind of setlist. Im not a hardcore fan who wants b-sides gig in Dallas but if you have a new album you must defend it live. Compare with FIB '99 and FIB '03.The show is great but conservative.

Yep, their approach to this tour has been way too conservative. They've played great shows but there is just no excuse for playing only 4 songs off TMW. It's quite disappointing to see that they're giving up on the album based on no reason at all –it got great reviews, the fans loved it and did pretty well in the charts. They seemed excited about releasing a brand new record but it seems that thrill is gone.

Good nights.

(Sorry if i have been grumpy with setlist. Being positive, we never imagine this, Blur in 2015 with new album and strong health).

I just got back from this. They were excellent, everybody loved it. I can't speak for tomorrow's bands, obviously, but they blew away anyone at the festival up to now in terms of atmosphere, Noel and The Prodigy included. There were four tracks from TMW, but I don't see any problem with that. They must be conscious that it doesn't have too many radio-friendly moments, in spite of its quality. No other surprises but it's a festival, you have to work the crowd, and they worked them beautifully. And they didn't cut it short, they were scheduled to finish at 2.30 and I think they ran over by a few minutes.

Thanks for recording it for us!

I agree that they should play more songs from TMW. The Wolverhampton show was the perfect example of new songs and old songs together, but then after that show they dropped loads.

Thanks gouranga! I loved listening to this last night, such a great performance (for example, "Ong Ong" just keeps getting better and better!)

Yeah, I was also listening last night. I was also a bit worried when they left out so many TMW songs, but if they want to create a great party this is the perfect setlist... It sounded amazing and I felt a bit gutted that I probably won't be able to see them this year...

Next gig is Hong Kong. I expect some of the TMW songs will be back in the set; Ghost Ship and New World Towers with their Hong Kong references? And There Are Too Many of Us, with lyrics written i Sydney, should be back for the Australian dates..?
