Blur, November 25th 1995 – NEC Arena, Birmingham

Blur also played at the NEC Arena, and I caught them during November 1995. They dedicated the majority of the concert to songs from either Parklife or The Great Escape, but thankfully did perform several earlier songs, notably "For Tomorrow" and "There’s no Other Way". 

There was the unfortunate yet unavoidable overbearing of “teeny-boppy” girls who would now be enjoying X Factor, but these things are sent to try us. Very visual set with lots of references to pop art and mod imagery. Graham Coxon is a great guitarist though...

7 out of 10 (a rendition of Chemical World would have pushed this to at least an 8)
