Sharing the live ‘Tender’ video on Twitter, Rowntree showed his gratitude for the “lovely comments” left by fans of Blur and Glastonbury under the clip and said that he and his bandmates “loved the gig too”.
Rowntree added: “Can’t wait till this bloody virus is dead, and we can get back out there.”

That surprise gig followed four years on from their last full tour, which included a huge outdoor show at London’s Hyde Park.
Asked if Blur had already played their last-ever show, he replied: “I really hope not. I love doing those gigs, they’re great, but it’s not something I need to do.
“I only do it because there’s a joy in doing it. It’s an absolute treat. I can’t wait to sing ‘Parklife’ again.”
