Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

The gig on Blackpool's Northern Pier was just mesmarising. The venue, the setting, the songs and the moment fitted together perfectly. 2 years in the planning and to be even just part of it by purely making up the numbers was such a privilege. Probably my second most favourite Damon Albarn moment of...

Re: TGTBTQ: New single "Merrie Land"

It's a great record. The lyrics are superb and it could be one of Damon Albarn's most political songs to date. Really looking forward to the Album and seeing the band on the North pier in blackpool next month.

Re: Are Gorillaz going to affect Blur?

Blur will be back as a creative band again. I expect them to release more music in the future. The bond of the band is now so strong that none of them would want to let it go. I always felt that there would be another record pre Magic Whip and with Graham taking the reigns and showing the rest of th...

Re: Gig: Llandudno, 11 June

Blur were as fantastic as they were in Blackpool but the sound was better in Venue Cymru. What let the gig down was the lackluster effort made by the crowd to engage with the band. Being born and bred in North Wales I thought It was going to be a really special night and got a ticket last minute. As...

Re: Gig: Blackpool, 10 June

Our tickets haven't arrived so I rang both AXS and Winter Gardens and arranged venue collection. The box office is open pretty much all day from 10 am. The fella on the phone said that you could pop in anytime.

Re: Blackpool Show Thread

Me and the good lady will be at the Blackpool gig. There are loads of pubs which are the usual chains including Wetherspoons, Revolution Bar which is really nice. Everything is pretty close to the winter Gardens which is right in the middle of the town so you will be no more than 5 minutes walk from...

Re: The Magic Whip Reviews

Hello everyone!! How are you all doing? The Magic Whip, having listened to the Live stream sounds very much Like a strong Blur record. There seems to be a really good blend of everything you could want from the direct and Chipper bouncy Ong Ong, the Punky broadcast which is my favourite Blur style a...
