Blur paid an emotional tribute to London's successful hosting of the 2012 Olympic Games as they performed what could be the band’s last concert together.
The Britpop group wowed crowds in Hyde Park with their hit-packed performance to coincide with the Olympic Closing Ceremony on Sunday night.
Frontman Damon Albarn, who has been involved in projects outside Blur including Gorillaz, was joined on stage by guitarist Graham Coxon, bassist Alex James and drummer Dave Rowntree. The quartet have previously hinted that Sunday night's gig could be their last one together.
Kicking off the set with Girls and Boys, the band went on to perform London Loves, with Albarn telling the crowd: “And we love London!”
Later, actor Phil Daniels, who featured on the original recording of Parklife, joined the band to perform the hit track. Comedian Harry Enfield also made a guest appearance during the song dressed as a maid. Albarn said Enfield was there "to represent that great British institution – the tea lady".
The band also wrote two new songs for the outdoor gig – Under the Westway and The Puritan.
As he introduced the last song, Universal, a choked-up Albarn said, "I don't know what to say", and thanked the audience for being "bloody marvellous".
Earlier at the BT London Live Closing Ceremony Celebration Concert, a re-formed New Order, The Specials and Bombay Bicycle Club took to the stage. Sunday night's performances were the culmination of two weeks of BT London Live shows representing British music.
The concert series was held for the duration of the Games and has seen bands including Duran Duran, Paulo Nutini, Stereophonics and Snow Patrol perform in front of a total of more than a million sport and music fans.
