Blur To Release 'Parklive' Live Albums And Hyde Park Concert DVD
Blur are set to release "Parklive", a live album recorded at this summer's Hyde Park gig in London. The five disc CD and DVD set will come out on December 3. The entire audio from the Olympic Games' closing gig will feature on two CDs, while a DVD of the concert - which was shot on 12 cameras - will also be included. The other two CDs will comprise "Blur - Live At The 100 Club" which was recorded at their special intimate gig in August and there will be another disc of live songs recorded over the summer, including the rooftop debuts of new tracks "Under The Westway" and "The Puritan", as well as songs taken from Blur's warm-up show in Wolverhampton and their BBC Radio Maida Vale session. "Parklive" will come with a 60 page book featuring exclusive photos from the summer's gigs. Scroll down to watch a trailer for the "Parklive" release. Blur are to perform at next year's twin Primavera festivals in Barcelona, Spain (May 24, 2013) and Porto, Portugal (May 31). The band will also headline the Rock Werchter festival, which takes place July 47, 2013 in Werchter, Belgium. No UK dates for 2013 have been announced, but The Guardian reports that "a handful of British festivals", including Reading and Leeds, are bidding for a Blur performance. The full tracklisting for "Parklive" is available on NME.
