Re: Gig: Blackpool, 10 June

Alex : "I think there’s something really special about Blur getting back together. It really has knocked us all over, we were playing in Blackpool and the crowd were going so mental the barrier broke, it was quite scary actually!" :D http://www.nme.com/news/blur/86927 well the barrier wasn't secure...

Re: Gig: Hong Kong, 22 July

I am afraid I keep repeating myself, but I really think Pyongyang should replace the Universal as a closer.

Re: Gig: Super Bock Super Rock, 17 July

One of the times Damon came to front barrier a fan asked for Parklife and he answered something like “of course, but not now! Unless you want to come up here and make a fool of yourself if you don't know the lyrics...” :lol: and later when they played Parklife Damon invited him to the stage and it ...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I was sooo hoping for more gigs as well. Guess RAH in November is a pipe dream indeed given they would need to announce that around now... But smaller European or at least UK dates might still happen in September. After all, they only announced the June warm-up shows in early May, so you never know.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Ok, well, three new pages of this thread since I was on last but no news whatsoever... What about the additional dates for September in Europe I have been hoping for so hard? I find it hard to accept that this might have been it for this tour unless I travel the continents or go to some festival. I ...

Re: "The Magic Whip" Ice Cream (+download of Y'All Doomed)

So no one got the Magic Whip ice cream at Hyde Park? (Other than the cones given out by Damon himself.)

Was it sold there at all?

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Also, just noticed that the first post of this thread, which contains all the gigs, is missing the one gig they played in Berlin (20 April)... And being such a completist, maybe that could be fixed..?

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Same boat here, I think it'll be better to buy these MSG tickets... worst case scenario, I go to the show. Best case, I go to this and a smaller one later on if there's one in Boston. It's been 12 years since I last saw them and that's too long to risk never seeing them again. You simply cannot go ...

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

Just looked at Twitter..seen quite a lot of tweets along the lines of "going to see blur Hyde park Saturday, not even a fan but couldn't say no to those prices" Yeah but I think there's going to be a contingent of those people at any gig the size of Hyde Park. At Hyde Park 2012 the couple behind me...
