Heh....at first I was like "Fred doesn't know the words???" but by the second verse I started to get it.

Get rudely awaken by picking up my recycling! :lol:

I was at the show.
The Hollywood Bowl has a strict 11PM curfew
Blur didn't hit the stage until a bit after 9PM
I bet they were forced to drop a song or two due to that

Still odd that they didn't play I Broadcast after the tweet. I bet MSG will get the full longer set

All in all, real great show.
Obviously, I would have loved a set twice as long, and I could actually just listen to Graham make a wall of noise all night long, but the set that was delivered was tight and spot on.

Damon was very sentimental and appeared in positive drunken spirits.
That stage setup, lights, and the sound at Hollywood Bowl were all fantastically top notch.

I'm curious about this too. Wondering what MSG will look like Friday night.

It's hard to say about how filled it was. It seemed full. But I've never been to a show there before and the assigned box quads were odd.
Seemed full though

Just realized no radio or TV shows were utilized to promote this! Bummer. Hopefully in NY.

Yes, please!

According to this reviewer "At this point I noticed that Beck was sitting a couple of rows back from me. It was refreshing to see that even someone as talented and awesome as him takes shitty grainy cell phone videos at concerts. Beck later moved up to a closer spot to take in much of the show." :mrgreen:
