Blur - Warm up at Denmark's Smukfest

On August 9th 2012, Blur played a warm up gig in Denmark, Skanderborg as part of their 2012 live shows. It's been a an exciting few weeks leading up to Blur's Hyde Park Olympics show, which closed this landmark London sporting event very successfully despite a little volume troubles.

After Blur's initial London gigs (first one being Maida Vale on August 2nd), Blur packed their bags and traveled to Denmark to visit their Denmark and neighbouring fans. According to many members of the audience, the Smukfest show was raw, visually bright and was an enjoyable experience.

It's time to catch up on this rare, "outside-UK" Blur warm up show which received little media attention.
