    Blur didn't play To the End or Under the Westway? I would have been super sad.

    This xwhatever. I never knew these guys were so great. Damon grabbed hold of the crowd and did not let go. So many great songs.

    Menik's boot of the show is amazing, too. Seek it out to relive the night.

    Yeah, it was only after I got over the pure joy that was that set a.k.a the next day did I notice that they didn't play End Of The Century or Under The Westway.

    Agreed! Tracy Jacks > Death of a Party. I really liked the Blur set W1. If anything I would have replaced Sing with one of the Great Escape hits, Country House or Charmless Man.

    Yeah as a "new" Blur fan I would have liked to hear that song. It's from the first album, right? I like that one.

    I had no idea how big of a Blur fan I was until I saw them on Friday. I knew & sang along to almost every song & don't even own 1 Blur album. Great set.

    Easily my favorite set of the weekend. Damon had energy to spare. His voice was awesome. The band sounded great. I didn't know what to expect after the weekend 1 reviews and i remember Gorillaz in 2010 being a little underwhelming for me but they put up an amazing performance. True headliner performance.

    Same here. Bought the Parklife LP at Zia after their show and been listening to their entire catalog since.

    So, I'm interested to know the band's thoughts on Coachella. Damon went on record saying that Gorillaz at Coachella in 2010, at the time, were the best couple weeks he'd ever spent in the States. I wonder if he had another positive experience.

    I imagine it was probably different this time. I don't know if bands stay in town for the layover between weeks 1 and 2 (probably showing my lack of knowledge here) but seems like being in the desert for just the weekend for 2010 would have been a lot more wild, especially if all the Gorillaz collaborators were hanging out.

    That's the thing I was worried about for this set, Damon's heart really is in Gorillaz I think. Blur must seem pretty old hat these days. Even though they fucking killed it Weekend 2 he didn't have that Hyde Park-ish grin on the whole time (and why would he?). Still loved it though, it was fun and Blur destroyed it.

    I can't say anything about their w2 performance, but I felt they were killer on w1. The first time I was able to sing along with every song in a whole set. Awesome.
    Anything is possible...
