    The Hyde Park show on Sunday is being streamed live here. Use tunnelbear if there is any region restrictions.

    Blur - Parklive



    Blur’s highly anticipated show in Hyde Park marking the close of the Olympic Games this weekend, will be made available for download – via iTunes – worldwide within 24 hours for of the band leaving the stage.

    Blur have partnered with Abbey Road Live Here Now to deliver instant high quality live audio of their massive sold-out London show to fans around the world.
    Next week, a CD limited edition of the full Hyde Park show will be available. Titled Parklive, it will comprise of 2 show discs coupled with a bonus disc featuring unreleased live tracks selected from the recent warm up shows.

    Then, in November comes a deluxe 5-disc set, which contains the 3 CDs of show audio with an additional performance DVD of the Hyde Park gig. Added to this is an exclusive CD of tracks – ‘Blur Live At The 100 Club’ – recorded at the legendary London venue in August. The discs are packaged in a hardback book containing over 60-pages of exclusive photographs from both Hyde Park and the 100 Club.

    Click here to view and purchase the products.

    See you at the front.
    Hoping I can find the deluxxxe set cheaper elsewhere, though I'd certainly be pleased with the initial CD release if there's at least a few songs from the Margate show. Failing that, I'll download...somewhere.

    I wish NBC would redeem themselves for their shitty Olympics coverage by showing this concert, uninterrupted, on their soccer channel or something.

    has anyone identified a place to download rips of the box set dvds? I'm not sure of a good place to get video downloads now that demonoid is gone.

    Chris, what was your verdict on New Order? I enjoyed them but it didn't feel like it 100% clicked for whatever reason. It doesn't help that they have terrible stage presence and that the show wasn't very loud.

    Bernard and his dad dancing doesn't help, and neither did the really low sound limits that Hyde Park enforces. I'm also not overly keen on the poppier renditions of Joy Division tracks. It was pleasant enough, but it's a downer knowing how great they have been in the past.

    Just seeing those people in the front row when Damon is going off in front of them had me scratching my head. Looked like he was trying to get a reaction out of them, too.

    Blur does not get enough love in America for them to tour here. At least I saw them in 03. and 97. and 92.

    I wrote about Blur 21 for PopMatters, mostly as an excuse to extend a semi-critical eye to the rarities discs. Rather than post the entire thing, here's my five favorite songs from the archives...

    1. “Death of a Party (Demo)”

    “Death of a Party” turned up as a spooky organ-fuelled, full-band performance on Blur’s eponymous 1997 album, but the demo version of the song (recorded in 1992) was given to fans who subscribed to Blurb, the official fanzine, in 1996. The song was fairly complete in demo form, an acoustic run through with chilling harmonies, but it wasn’t until their post-Britpop comedown that the time was right to unleash the finished product.

    2. “Far Out (Electric Version)”

    Alex James’ spacy Syd Barrett-pastiche appeared in abbreviated form on 1994’s Parklife, but here the guitars and energy are turned up. It’s not necessarily a better version, but is every bit as intriguing.

    3. “1”

    Of the two tracks recorded in 2000 with Bill Laswell included on the box set, “1” is the most fully-formed, full of weird noises and chimes, and a laconic vocal from Albarn. It bears the sense of dread which pervades much of Blur’s later work, but in the best possible way.

    4. “Dizzy”

    One could argue which of the band’s earliest recordings best typifies what they were like when they were still called Seymour, but my money is on “Dizzy”, a song alternating between gently picked passages and spasms of kinetic energy. While Britain was in thrall to the Stone Roses and the Madchester scene, Seymour seemed completely oblivious (though later they’d adopt a few shuffle-beats in a half-hearted effort to latch on, their songs were never fully immersed in the ubiquitous sound of the day.)

    5. “Seven Days”

    Of the three songs here from the Andy Partridge sessions, “Seven Days” is the only one the band never re-recorded and re-released. It’s a testament to the strength of their material at the time that they could leave what could have at least been a quality album track or b-side with harmonies and a chorus which builds upon itself bit-by-bit from beginning to end.

    If Pulp can tour here, Blur can tour here. And if Suede can do a one-off at Coachella, Blur can also do that.

    it's funny to think about how they might have distributed it in those days. and how it wasn't also immediately available to everyone who doesn't subscribe.
