One of the original Indie/Britpop legends, blur, return this summer for their massive Wembley gigs on the 8th and 9th of July but before that…. warm-up shows next month, and tickets are on sale this Friday 28 April morning!
Kicking off a summer of those highly-anticipated live shows, the boys take on their first ever performance at converted church and local landmark Colchester Arts Centre on 19th May, followed by Eastbourne Winter Gardens on 21st May, The Halls Wolverhampton on 26th May and O2 City Hall Newcastle on 28th May – love it, and wish they might consider a few more smaller venues on the build-up, or even later this year.
Colchester is the hometown of band members Damon Albarn, guitarist Graham Coxon and drummer Dave Rowntree, with Damon and Graham first meeting as teenagers at Stanway School. It was Graham who later introduced Dave to Damon and bassist Alex James to form blur, and then that debut album ‘Leisure’ from 1991, followed by Modern Life is Rubbish, Parklife, The Great Escape, Blur, 13, Think Tank and then The Magic Whip in 2015.
While their Wembley Stadium show on 8th July sold out in minutes, there are a few remaining tickets for Sunday 9th July available here!
