Watch Blur Perform ‘The Magic Whip’ in Full at Tiny Club Gig in London
In anticipation of Blur’s first full-length album since 2003’s Think Tank, the Brit-rockers performed The Magic Whip in its entirety last week at a small club gig in London. For the millions of fans who weren’t lucky enough to be at the show, they are now streaming it in full on Beats by Dre's’ YouTube page. You can check out the performance up above.
Playing the LP from front to back, Blur capped the concert with “Trouble in the Message Centre” from 1994’s Parklife. This was the first time they played that track live since 1995.
The concert took place at 3PM on March 20 at London’s Mode and was free for those who attended. The only currently scheduled date on Blur’s tour itinerary is at Hyde Park on June 20; you can stay up-to-date with their full run of gigs (hopefully to be announced soon!) at their official website.
The Magic Whip hits storeshelves on April 27 via Parlophone. It marks Blur’s eighth studio record and their first with Graham Coxon on guitars since 1999’s 13.
