10 Excellent Blur Performances

Hopefully the Britpop icons' Olympics-closing gig will be as awesome as these vintage clips.

Posted on

Blur will close out the Olympics in London on Sunday night by headlining a massive gig in Hyde Park alongside fellow British pop icons New Order and the Specials. Blur's musical style shifted a lot over the course of seven albums and dozens of B-sides, but they were always an exceptional and highly energetic live band. Here are ten videos of Blur at their best, ranging from ultra-campy theatrical pop and aching balladry to hyperactive punk and atmospheric art rock.
