  • Blur were billed as "a special surprise band". Uniquely, the secret was revealed with a freebie CD that said "Blur" when played.
  • The band played without Alex James who couldn't enter the country because of visa problems. He was replaced by Chris Traynor of Rival Schools.
  • At one point of the gig, Damon dialed to Alex's voicemail and asked the audience to leave greetings for him.
  • Damon described "On The Way To The Club" as "a song about poor excuses".
  • Simian and The Rapture performed before Blur.
