Blur US tour news and online concert footage

Story: Jack Foley

BLUR fans who want to be reminded of how great the band's Astoria dates were should head to the band's website,, and log on to the members' area to view Blur's fourth show from the five night residency.

The show, which will remain online for the next month, was shot by three webcams; on stage, side-stage and front of house.

The footage also includes a live audio feed. The set list featured a majority of the new album, Think Tank, plus classic Blur cuts, including This Is A Low, Beetlebum, Tender and Girls & Boys.

In what is proving to be a busy time for Blur fans, to mark the release of the new album, Blur have teamed up with graffiti artist, Banksy, and designer, Gravy, to create an extra-special collection of clothing and accessories.

Master of mass disruption, Banksy, has created the logos for all the products - from the bloodied scrawl of the Crazy Beat motif to the underwater love of the Think Tank couple.

The items have been designed by Dan Lea, 21-year-old mastermind behind the Gravy clothing label, an outfit with a distinctive visual identity and a cult following.

Available to buy online at and at all live dates are T-shirts for girls and boys, coats, sweatshirts, caps, bags and badges.

The full list is as follows:
Urban jacket (Beige/Navy)
T-shirts (THINK TANK/Crazy Beat)
Sweatshirts (THINK TANK)
Canvas Bag (Pistol Pump logo)
Caps (Pistol Pump logo)
Badge pack
