Damon Albarn Refuses To End Set

Damon Albarn was so determined to give fans the best, and longest, gig of their life at Roskilde last weekend that security had to carry him off stage at 4am. The Blur and Gorillaz frontman performed a five-hour set with his Africa Express collective at the Denmark festival and quickly proved a total nightmare for event organizers. Albarn was repeatedly warned that he needed to bring things to a close but instead, he urged the crowd to keep shouting “more” so that he could continue, at one point even covering “Should I Stay or Should I Go” by The Clash with Songhoy Blues. Back in the UK, Albarn’s Alice in Wonderland musical opened in Manchester to mixed reviews.
