Damon Albarn performed "Song 2" for the first time ever as a solo artist at a recent gig at Boston's Royale.

Local music blog Vanyaland notes that Blur songs "Out Of Time" and "Intermission" were played in the set, while Gorillaz' "Kids With Guns" also featured. Albarn has been performing Blur tracks "Out Of Time" and "This Is A Low" frequently on his current tour.

According to reports, Albarn additionally played his solo track "Mr. Tembo," while wearing an elephant hat thrown to him by a member of the audience.

Albarn described "Mr. Tembo" as an orphaned baby elephant he met while travelling in Tanzania, calling him a "beautiful little fella", and recalling the moment how after he played the song on his ukulele, the elephant "backed away and sh*t himself."
