Damon Albarn played 5-hour set at Roskilde, was forcibly removed from the stage
You think you had a wild 4th of July weekend....
Damon Albarn had to be forcibly removed from the stage at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark on Saturday night when organizers asked he cease performing after five hours on stage.
The Gorillaz and Blur frontman was actually at the fest leading African Express, a supergroup of world musicians. It was at about 4am local time that Albarn along with Songhoy Blues, Nick Zinner, Jeff Wootton, and Seye Adelekan launched into The Clash's "Should I Stay Or Should I Go" in order to rile of fans who wanted the group to keep playing.
Instead, Albarn was quickly hoisted over the shoulder of a security guard and hauled off.
