Video: Blur frontman forcibly removed from stage after curfew-busting 5-hour set

Blur’s Damon Albarn remained in good spirits despite being forcibly carried from the stage during a festival performance in Denmark.

Albarn was performing with side-project Africa Express at the Roskilde Festival when he decided to just keep going at the end of the allotted time – carrying on until 4:00 in the morning.

The epic five-hour set was a hit with fans, but attracted the ire of one particularly charmless man on the security team, who carried the Britpop legend from the stage after multiple warnings.

The final straw came in the form of a cover of Should I Stay or Should I Go, sparking a clash with the security guard.

Presumably Albarn’s continued baiting of the festival staff happened because he didn’t believe it really, really, really could happen.
