Milky joins Blur on stage in Milan, Italy Concert

Strange things have happened in past Blur concerts, whether it be during the Britpop heydays or the recent Blur 2013 World Tour (notably the Damon Albarn mask, which interestingly, Damon Albarn wore for a large portion of the Russian gig on July 13th). 

For the band's show in Italy's Rock in Roma event held in Milan on July 28th, there was yet another surprise on stage. A fan dressed up in a milk carton inspired by Blur's music video for the hit single 'Coffee and TV' jumped on stage and joined in the band, dancing along as Damon sang the lyrics to the audience.

The picture was taken by none other than Dave Rowntree, Blur's drummer, who was undoubtedly in a prime position to shoot the epic moment from his view behind the drum kit. Dave Rowntree regularly tweets (@Dave Rowntree) images from the backstage of Blur shows to the fans. 

Blur previously played in Italy during 1993, 1995, 1996 and 1997. They last toured in Alcatraz, Milan in 20013 to promote their latest album Think Tank. Graham Coxon also performed in Milan during 2004.
