Blur play video game big bosses in “Ong Ong” video (watch) ++ updated tour dates


Blur have made a video for the “Ong Ong,” which is probably the most sing-a-long-able song on their new album, The Magic Whip. Directed by Tony Hung, the band star as Big Bosses in a NES-style video game: Damon Albarn is “Mr. Cream,” Graham Coxon the cockroach “Mr. Brown,” Alex James is the tomato-y “Mr. Red” and Dave Rowntree is the fly “Mr. Black.” You can watch it below.

Blur will be playing select dates (mostly festivals) over the summer. Still no word on North American dates (they played NYC last month). They do have dates in Chile and Mexico on October, however. Stay tuned. All dates are listed below.
