Blur's Damon Albarn carried offstage at Denmark fest
Blur’s Damon Albarn didn’t want to leave the stage at this weekend’s Roskilde Music Festival in Denmark—so he didn’t. And that meant a security guard had to physically carry him off.
In a fan-shot video from the show, Albarn leads a rendition of the Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go” when a security guard approaches him to seemingly tell him it’s time to go. The crowd begins chanting, “We want more,” but their pleas aren’t enough to keep Albarn there: The same security guard later returns to the stage to pick Albarn up and take him away.
Albarn was performing as part of Africa Express, a music collective made up of dozens of musicians including Paul McCartney, Björk, and Flea. The fan who uploaded the video wrote that it was shot at 4 a.m.—five hours after Africa Express’ 11 p.m. start time.
