Blur has announced three warm up shows ahead of their Hyde Park
date this summer.
Blur shows don't come around very often. Coaxed out of
retirement by the Olympics committee the band are set to headline a
special show this summer, to coincide with the global sporting
event arriving on London soil.
Now the band have unveiled three warm up shows. Blur are set to
play a short burst of intimate dates ahead of their Hyde Park
appearance, mixing a two night stand in the Midlands with a visit
to the seaside.
The Britpop giants will play Margate Gardens on August 1st,
before playing two shows in Wolverhampton. Hitting Civic Hall on
August 5th and 6th, the brief run of shows end with a visit to
Plymouth on August 7th.
Bass player Alex James said: ''Every one of these shows will be
very special and we can't wait to get cracking.''
Singer Damon Albarn - who completes the band with drummer Dave
Rowntree and guitarist Graham Coxon - has hinted the Olympic show
could be the band's last ever.
When asked if the show would be the end of the band, he said:
''I think so, yeah,'' before adding: ''And I hope that's the truth:
That that's how we end it.''
Tickets are £35 each (plus a £3.50 booking fee) and available
from 9:00am on Friday (May 18th).
Blur are set to play the following shows:
