SHOW: Cotton Club, Atlanta, Georgia March 17, 1997

Here's a show from Blur's spring US Tour in 1997, performing the brand new self-titled album in America for the first time on these dates. This is the complete show, which is somewhat rare to find (most sources cut off before or during the encores). Enjoy!

  1. I'm gonna assume that their setlist remained the same for this tour and imagine them playing it as if I were at the Milwaukee stop of the tour :)

    Thanks for everything you do, this is truly a wonderful bootleg resource.

  2. You're very welcome, glad you enjoy!
    And I've done some digging and it looks like Blur were in Minneapolis, not Milwaukee, on June 24, 1997. Now I'm going to have to dig to see when, if at all, they played in Milwaukee in 1997.

  3. Aw that's disappointing to hear, but it's alright either way.

    It also seems I'm having trouble with the link. Doesn't want to download completely. Could you double check when you get a free minute? Thanks!

  5. Hmmm, I checked and it worked OK. Another fellow had the same problem but he re-tried it and it worked fine. Could you guys try again and let me know the outcome? If it still isn't working, I'll redo it.

  6. Thanks for posting this show. It was a great one. I recall most of it. Especially the bit where Damon is getting shocked on stage.

    Any chance that you could post some of the sessions they did for radio? BBC, U.S. radio, anything.

  10. To answer blureu, sure, that's a good idea!

    Ian and bugman, I tried downloading it myself on two different computers and it worked fine. Another fellow had an issue but when he tried it again, it worked fine. Let me see if I can figure this out and when I do, I'll let you know so you can get your hands on it.

  11. Hey guys, I just downloaded it again no problem and so far everyone on the Facebook page, the Blur forum, and Veikko's forum have told me they've had no issues.

    Do you have firewall or other security settings active? Or perhaps problems with connection speed? I'm baffled and I feel bad, I want you to get the show. Let me know what's going on.

  15. Ian and bugman, I'm sorry guys, I'm stumped! It's been working for everyone else except for you guys and 1-2 others. I've been asking all over and it seems to be fine. Maybe try again and see if it's ok now?

  17. I'm sorry, I feel really bad. It seems to be working for everyone except for 4 or 5 people, a few of whom are on here. When I have some time, I'll try uploading it somewhere else (RapidShare?)

  19. This is a super old post, but I was wondering if it would be possible for you to reupload the recording? The megaupload link no longer works (not surprisingly...) A friend of mine was at this show and I was supposed to go but couldn't because of school projects... still one of the biggest regrets of my life!
