Robert, ask Damon how it’s done

A while back I posted about my disappointment after going to see a gig by The Cure in which they played hardly any of their hits.

Yesterday I went to see Blur in Hyde Park, in a concert that really showed what a great gig can be like. They played a full two hour set, including almost all of their major hits – and still managed to fit in a healthy collection of fan favourites and other album tracks.

They also started earlier than most acts do, finishing at about 10:20pm. That made for a very pleasant change from the usual rush to catch the last train that I have to go through when going to gigs in London. I still didn’t get home until nearly 1am though, so I’m quite glad that I booked today off work 😉
