The former Blur frontman brings out the big guns at The Royal Albert Hall.
Over the course of his career, Damon Albarn has worked with scores of music’s biggest names. Last night, at the iconic Royal Albert Hall, he brought a few on stage to play a few fan favorites.
Backed by touring band The Heavy Seas, a choir and string section, Albarn worked through his voluminous catalogue (the setlist is below).
