For two nights only at Wembley Stadium in London, Blur are reuniting to blow our socks off with Britpop bangers.


The gigs are in celebration of the English rock band’s 35-year anniversary, and it’ll be the first time the foursome have toured together since their comeback studio album, The Magic Whip, seven years ago.

Since forming Blur in 1988, the members have all had various side projects. Alex James has become rock’s greatest cheese lover, Graham Coxon has produced some fantastic oil paintings, drummer Dave Rowntree was a Labour Party councillor, and Damon Albarn created virtual band Gorillaz alongside Jamie Hewlett.

Speaking about the reunion, frontman Albarn said: "We really love playing these songs and thought it's about time we did it again." And we certainly love hearing them, too. Song 2 was the anthem to our teenage years spent at indie dance clubs.

Coxon added: "I’m really looking forward to playing with my Blur brothers again and revisiting all those great songs… Blur live shows are always amazing for me. A nice guitar and an amp turned right up and loads of smiling faces."

Meanwhile, James said something "really special" always happens when the four band members get together in a room.

And Rowntree agreed, summing up: "After the chaos of the last few years, it’s great to get back out to play some songs together on a summer’s day in London. Hope to see you there."

All in all, the band is very excited. Also supporting Blur at Wembley is rapper Slowthai, Mercury Prize 2022 runner-up Self Esteem, and duo Jockstrap.
