Blur to reunite for July show
« on: 09 Dec 2008, 07:14 »

Quote from: BitchPork Media
After much dilly-dallying, Blur have FINALLY confirmed that they are indeed reuniting, for real this time. Damon Albarn, Alex James, Dave Rowntree, and, yes, Graham Coxon will take the stage for a concert at London's Hyde Park on July 3, 2009. This will be their first full-lineup performance since 2000.

In a video interview on their site (email/mobile info necessary), the band says the reunion rehearsals have been like "putting the A-Team back together" and "like riding a bike."

No other future plans have been announced yet, but we wouldn't be surprised if a Coachella set was in the cards...

Sure took the lads long enough.

This is gonna be like the Police reunion. At least one of them is still going to be a dominating dick and they'll soon realize that it's not worth the money or press.

I just thank god that this didn't coincide with the release of Dig Out Your Soul.

Oh my God. I just came.

With the quality of Graham's recent output, a reformed Blur record could be amazing.

Oh wow, so they were officially broken up? When did that happen?

They never officially broke up, but Graham did officially leave, and it was kind of assumed by everybody. Damon said several times he categorically never wanted to make a Blur album or play Blur songs without Graham because doing it for Think Tank just felt wrong.

Ah.

This is probably the kind of information I miss out on by paying absolutely no attention to music industry news.

As long as they stay together long enough to either record something or come to Australia I am happy.

Oh man, I hope they decide to stay together and tour.  The only time Iíve seen them was the Graham-less Think Thank tour.
