After releasing their first album in 12 years earlier this week, English rock band Blur gave their first U.S. television performance in 15 years on Thursday’s edition of The Tonight Show. The group, which reunited in 2009, performed “Ong Ong” off their latest album The Magic Whip.

Blur announced Tuesday that they’d also play their first North American concert since 2013 at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday. As part of Converse’s Rubber Tracks Live music program, fans were able to register for free tickets beginning Wednesday. The show also marks the first time Alex James, Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon and Dave Rowntree’s have performed together in New York in 15 years.
