Blur touched down in New York City last week, where they played their first American TV performance in 15 years on The Tonight Show. Under the bright lights, with millions of eyes watching, Damon Albarn & co. rattled off a rousing rendition of “Ong Ong”, a highlight off their comeback album The Magic Whip.
However, that wasn’t only the only song the band performed in 30 Rock that night. In a dimly lit room backstage, Blur delivered a lovely acoustic version of “Tender”, the opening track off their 1999 record, Thirteen, accompanied none other than host Jimmy Fallon. Watch the intimate performance below.
In related news, Blur has released a short documentary chronicling the making of The Magic Whip.
