They also played new songs Under The Westway and The Puritan, plus 1993 B-side Young & Lovely.

They also played the track ‘Caramel’ live for the first time ever.

The gig was Blur's first for three years, and came a fortnight before they play the Olympics Closing Ceremony-affiliated gig in Hyde Park on August 12, alongside The Specials and New Order.
