Blur end their intimate UK tour with hit-packed Plymouth performance

Blur played the final night of their intimate UK tour last night (August 7) at Plymouth Pavilions and treated fans to a hit-packed set.

The show, which will act as the final warm-up gig for the band's huge outdoor show at London's Hyde Park on Sunday (August 12), saw the band bang out a mammoth 26-song set.

Opening with 'Girls & Boys', the band aired 1999 album track 'Caramel' and 1993 B-side 'Young And Lovely' as they have done throughout their recent dates and both new singles 'The Puritan' and 'Under The Westway'.

The set also included hit singles 'Song 2', 'Coffee & TV', 'Beetlebum', 'No Distance Left To Run' and the closing 'The Universal' as well as live favourites 'Tracy Jacks' and 'Sunday Sunday'.

The band's setlist for their Hyde Park show is likely to be very similar, but bassist Alex James has previously told NME that a few of the rarer cuts may not make the set. He said of this: "I don't think you can really play two B-sides at Hyde Park."
