The Coachella Gods have been good to me. I saw Blur in 2003, The Good the Bad and the Queen do their album front to back in 2007, Gorillaz in 2010 (2nd best show I've ever been to) and now, God-willing, Blur in 2013.
Criminally underrated in the US. I would say start with Leisure (rhymes with pleasure) and go from there, it's all good.
I agree. I was all hoppped up on shrooms and enjoyed their set marvelous much. but their tour after Coachella was EPIC...ending the show with "don't get lost in heaven" and into "demon days" is something I'll never forget.
My only wish for BLUR this year is that the crowd is as good as the videos I'VE seen of Glastonbury in '09. My GOD!
Mad props for the crowd this show. Granted BLUR isn't as big stateside but I hope it gets down like this come April 12th
I'm also surprised (but thrilled) with the Blur/Roses co-headliners, especially with the lack of respect Coachella usually shows to britpop/british bands (Suede and Kasabian in the mojave, Noel Gallagher and Kaiser Chiefs in mid-afternoon, etc). Blur sounded kind of rough at the Brit awards, hopefully they've got their act together.
They very much treated the Brit Awards show as a joke. I went to that Parklive gig and they were brilliant there
