Re: How many American fans are there here?

Add another yank to the list.
Grew up in DC but currently floating around New York City.

Managed to see GBQ a long time ago... Gorillaz Plastic Beach tour... and Damon's solo tour last year. Really hoping to have a chance to see Blur this time.

My favorites (just based off the stream recordings)

1. Pyongyang
2. My Terracotta Heart
3. Ong Ong

The lack of any BNTs for the released tracks is a bit concerning... but yeah they do like Blur quite a bit. Hoping for at least an 8.

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

What are peoples thoughts on New World Towers? That's one of the ones where I'm most curious to hear the studio version.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I just hope they play some non-festival dates in the US... preferably smaller venues. I saw Damon on the ER tour in a NYC club about the size of the recent MODE gig, and it was incredible. I was like four feet from Damon's piano the whole night.

Me too, man. Me too. I had to upgrade from hardcore lurker to actual poster.... but it's worth it to say ME TOO. Not sure where all the hate is coming from.
