Damon Albarn is certainly showing no signs of slowing down, as fans at Denmark’s Roskilde festival found out, when the Blur frontman performed a whopping 5-hour Africa Express set.

However, security weren’t exactly chuffed with the musician’s mammoth concert, and eventually one member of staff arrived on stage at 4am, put Damon over his shoulder and carried him off stage.

*insert joke about being 'Out Of Time' here*

Damon seemed to take his removal in good spirits though, laughing and joking as security carried him off.

Moments before, he led the crowd through a ‘Should I Stay Or Should I Go’ singalong, and egged on chants of “we want more”.

The Africa Express project saw Damon travel across Africa, forming collaborations between Western musicians and local ones.

Since the jaunt, the Africa Express Collective have performed at a number of events, and at Roskilde, Damon was joined on-stage by stars including the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Nick Zinner, and his Blur bandmate Graham Coxon.

The huge set included everything from reinterpretations of Randy Newman tracks, to new versions of songs by Damon’s side project Gorillaz, reports the BBC.

Damon’s been pretty busy in recent weeks, performing gigs with Blur in London’s Hyde Park and at Isle Of Wight festival.
