Watch Blur Play Possibly-Final Show At Hyde Park

By Tom Breihan / August 13, 2012 - 10:03 am

During the official Olympics closing ceremony last night, a brass band played Blur’s song “Parklife.” But the band themselves held their own sort of closing ceremony nearby at London’s Hyde Park, playing what may or may not be their last-ever show and topping a very British bill that also featured New Order, the Specials, and Bombay Bicycle Club. Phil Daniels, the actor who did the “Parklife” monologue, appeared onstage with the band, along with comedian Harry Enfield, who was dressed as a tea lady. According to many reports, the show itself was way too quiet, but the career-spanning setlist was nothing to quibble about. Below, check out a few fan-made videos from the show, as well as the setlist.
