From Blur’s Hyde Park Olympic show, watch ‘Under The Westway’.


When Blur closed the Olympics with a show in Hyde Park this summer, no one actually believed the rumors that it was going to be the band’s last ever performance, but plenty thought it might just be the best way to round of best 2 weeks of our lives.
