Photo Essay: Blur at Maida Vale 2012 (Watch and download full gig)

PHOTO ESSAY: Blur played a miraculous set list yesterday during the first full gig they did in 3 years on July 31st 2012.

Stage was lit up as the small crowd waited for Blur - most viewers, however, were streaming from online

In the two intimate BBC Maida Vale gigs (BBC 6 music: 6pm-7pm, BBC Radio 2: 8pm-9pm) the audience witnessed several moments that will completely rewrite Blur's musical history.

'Young and Lovely', a B-side of single 'Chemical World' (Modern Life is Rubbish, 1993) was also performed for the second and third time in Blur history, the first being the legendary B-sides gig in 1999.
New single 'Under the Westway' got two more plays. The accompanying 'The Puritan' was also performed once live, the second time since the premier on the roof a month ago.

'Caramel' (album '13') was played live for the first time ever. Although the song never made it to the live setlists for Blur's past gigs, the first (and perhaps the last) performance of 'Caramel' was absolutely stunning.

Damon crooned and the song shone out brilliantly, intense with emotion.
