Watch Blur's Complete Music Hall of Williamsburg Gig - 1 May 2015 (video)

by Brice Ezell

9 May 2015

Britpop was alive and well at the start of May as Blur took to Brooklyn for the first time in 16 years. Now, you can watch the whole concert right here on PopMatters.

PopMatters has had a week full of of Blur live videos, all stemming from the group’s 1 May show at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg. These include: “Ghost Ship”/“Song 2”, “Lonesome Street”/“New World Towers”, “Go Out”/“Trouble at the Message Centre”, and “Pyongyang”/“Beetlebum”.

Your ability to experience the show from home, however, will no longer have to be piecemeal. Blur have made the entire Music Hall performance available to stream online, Given that the show sold out in a lightning-fast 60 seconds, there’s no doubt the band felt that giving everyone the chance to see what went down is only fair.

The full gig is available for your viewing pleasure through the player below:
