Blur gig online

Blur are set to broadcast one of their recent London Astoria shows via their official website, dotmusic can reveal.

From 5pm on Friday (May 16), fans will be able to watch footage of Monday's show, by simply logging on to the members area at www.blur.co.uk.

According to a spokesperson for the band, the concert was shot by three webcams - one on stage, one to the side and one positioned front of house - with a live audio feed also included in the footage.

As previously reported, Blur's five-night residency at the central London venue marked a triumphant return for the band, whose long-awaited seventh album - 'Think Tank' - has gone straight to the top of the UK charts.

Performing on stage with a full band, including three backing vocalists, a percussionist and keyboard player, Blur also introduced their UK audience to new guitarist Simon Tong.

Several tracks from 'Think Tank' were performed at the gigs, as were a selection of tracks from the band's vast back-catalogue including 'Song 2', 'Boys & Girls', 'Beetlebum', 'Tender' 'Trim Trabb' and 'This Is A Low'.

Monday's show also featured a guest appearance from actor Phil Daniels, who joined the band to perform hidden album track, 'Me White Noise'.

Check dotmusic later today for a full review of Blur's opening night at the Astoria (Thursday, May 8).
