Blur Stick it to Oxegen
The Britpop heavyweights get their hits out for the Irish…

Blur have set the bar high for Oxegen’s headliners after delivering a triumphant first night festival climax.
Following warm-ups at London’s Hyde Park and some festival called Glastonbury, Blur were sufficiently prepared to give Oxegen the special performance they deserve.
Ticking off their classics, including Girls and Boys, Tender, This Is a Low, There’s No Other Way, Universal, Coffee and TV and a reworked version of Parklife with Damon doing Phil Daniels’ bits; it was the perfect climax to a great first day at Oxegen.
“It’s great to be back here,” Damon told the adoring, tipsy drunk, Oxegen crowd. The singer then recalled fond memories of playing at his mate’s wedding just round the corner.
But this was no wedding set; it was the stuff of festival legend. And as such, Kings of Leon had better pull their socks up. But if KOL’s recent gigs are anything to go by, they’ll handle the pressure just fine.
Meanwhile, the atmosphere at Oxegen is electric. Damp weather is certainly not dampening spirits, as revellers (and mtv.co.uk) get excited about today’s juicy line-up, especially those boys that set sex on fire and stuff.
Bring on day two…
