Watch Blur’s Full Set from 1991’s Reading Festival

Blur hit the Main Stage at Little John’s Farm on 24 August for the 1991 Reading Festival. For a little context, 1991 was one of the best line-ups ever. Iggy Pop, James, and Sisters of Mercy were headliners. Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, The Fall, and Teenage Fanclub were among some of the other big acts on the Main Stage. The video below captures Blur’s entire set. Most of the setlist was from that year’s Leisure (which was actually released two days after this performance), but the set includes two songs later recorded for Modern Life Is Rubbish, ‘Oily Water’ and ‘Turn It Up.’

Explain  |  Bang  |  High Cool  |  Bad Day  |  Oily Water  |  She’s So High  |  Turn It Up  |  There’s No Other Way
Wear Me Down  |  Mr. Briggs  |  Slow Down  |  Come Together  |  Commercial Break
