Plus De La Soul and more…

Damon Albarn welcomed a host of guests onstage at his two shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall over the weekend [November 15, 16].


They included his Blur bandmate Graham Coxon, Gorillaz collaborators De La Soul and Kano, Heavy Seas collaborator Brian Eno and Malian musicians Afel Bocoum and Madou Diabate.

Albarn and Coxon played three Blur songs – “End Of The Century”, b-side “The Man Who Left Himself” – its live debut – and “Tender”.

He also played two tracks from 2002’s Mali Music album with Afel Bocoum and Madou Diabate: “Bamako City” and “Sunset Coming On”.


During the second encore, De La Soul were introduced to perform Gorillaz track “Feel Good Inc”; London rapper Kano then joined the group for another Gorillaz song, “Clint Eastwood”.

The 130 minute set concluded with “Heavy Seas“, which saw the show’s ensemble cast (minus Coxon) return to the stage with Brian Eno, who sang the verses.
