The BBC was in the mix Saturday night as a recently reunited Blur played their first show together in nine years. A crowd of roughly 150 people huddled into a “goods shed” at the East Anglian Railway Museum, the exact spot where the Brit pop heavyweights’ very first gig took place waaaaay back in 1988. Shuffling through staples like “Parklife,” “Coffee and TV,” and the above “This Is A Low,” dudes played for a whopping 130 minutes. Damon Albarn even enjoyed some crowd surfing, something he might not be able to do so handily when the band take the headlining throne at Glastonbury later this month.
