The Blur frontman was recently carried offstage by his stage manager when his headline set at Denmark’s famous Roskilde Festival exceeded 5 hours in length. Albarn and Africa Express (one of his many side projects) played a lengthy set that included a reimagining of various Gorillaz songs and special guests which included soul singer Laura Mvula. You have to salute both his and the audience’s stamina as they all seemed eager for more. As he was carried away he encouraged the crowd to sing The Clash’s ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go?’.
