Blur Is Reuniting!

December 9, 2008

After months of speculation, the Britpop sensations will reunite next summer for their first performance since 2000. Blur has confirmed that they will be reuniting for a massive gig in London's Hyde Park next summer.

Guitarist Graham Coxon, who quit the band for a solo career in 2002, has signed up to the reunion, which features the full original lineup of frontman Damon Albarn, drummer Dave Rowntree and bassist Alex James.

There has also been some speculation in U.K tabloid the Sun that Blur will headline the Glastonbury festival in June, but there has been no official confirmation.

Coxon last performed with Blur in 2000 at London's Royal Festival Hall. Albarn has of course worked on several projects outside Blur, including the animated group Gorillaz and the Mandarin language opera, "Monkey: Journey To The West."

The Hyde Park show takes place on July 3rd.
