9/10 Swans @ Roxy, 9/18 Neutral Milk Hotel & Daniel Johnston @ Hollywood Bowl, 9/19 Tokimonsta @ El Rey, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/3-4 Desert Stars, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/22-25 CMJ, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale
The bottom line is that there is probably only a 5% chance of Blur being at Coachella. Led Zeppelin reunited in London. The Verve reunited in Glasgow. Spice Girls reunited in Vancouver...? Did Swervedriver reunite in the U.S.?
Maybe there's a 10% chance, but still, Blur will probably reunite in England.
no blur at coach.
you're all forgetting the daily mirror. or mail. or whatever.
Unlikely. As much as I want them there. 2009 is not their year. With their comeback slated for July in the UK, why would they play Coachella 3 months prior? 2010 for sure.
An elegant death by glow sticks.
...05',06',07',08',09',10',11',12',13' and counting...
btw, in '03, that wasn't really Blur...
everyone knows that "nobody loves me" song when it comes to Portishead... see how obnoxious you sound?Everyone knows Clint Eastwood and Feel Good Inc when it comes to Gorillaz. Everyone knows that "WOOO-HOOOO!" song when it comes to Blur.
everyone knowing Song 2 doesn't mean that was their only single, it means it was their biggest, that's all. For the record, "Girls & Boys" was a hit song years before whoo-hoo! Beetlebum and Coffee & TV were also hit singles...
i've said it once, and i'll say it again, people under the age of 25 prefer Gorillaz over Blur cause they're too young to know better... people over 25 prefer Blur because they were around to know better...

Everyone knows Clint Eastwood, Feel Good Inc., and Dare. Some might know 19-2000.
The fact is that neither Blur nor Gorillaz SHOULD be headliners. If Blur ends up playing and headline/co-headline, then that means GV simply couldn't find an appropriate headliner and are forcing the issue like with Portishead last year (who ended up being a sub).

and Prince was ONLY added to Saturday because it was the only day he was available according to Dani... not because Portishead couldn't hang... and not because of ticket sales either, Sat. had higher prices on ebay, prior to the prince add, than Sunday and def. was selling better than Fri.... besides even after Prince was added, the day & the weekend didn't sell out, so are you gonna argue that Prince isn't a draw or worthy of being a headliner?
Also, since there are also Oasis rumors, this could be the Blur/Oasis feud (dueling headliners) year revisited.
the same people who think Blur can't headline are the same people who say The Smiths aren't all that big or ask who The Kinks are... or say how amazing My Morning Jacket were
and i guarantee they are all under the age of 25...
JJ and Porishead really redefined 'headliner' year. fuck.
I think blur could feasibly headline a night of coachella. no other festival (except maybe a small one like treasure island). all this talk of hits and songs that people recognize is BS. coachella's target audience is not top 40 mainstream. I shouldn't need to point that out. coachella attendees will know a lot more blur than the general public.
then again, having seen how thin of a crowd the verve drew last year, I have second thoughts. it's almost as if people had forgotten, or just stopped caring.
Yeah no kidding. The Killers headlining? Jack Johnson? I'm starting to think that myself...
However, Coachella has always been about the reunions and smaller bands. I'd happily see a set it a small tent than wedge myself in a huge crowd at Main just to see a corner of a jumbo screen.
well the verve suck so....that might have something to do with small crowd. I think Blur would be amazing, but last time they played Coachella they were billed below Ben Harper and QOTSA. I dont think you can have a headliner where a lot of people would look at the poster and say who? I mean seriously, people dont know who they are until you go you know that song woohoo! or the lead singer is the singer for the gorillaz.
