Thread: Blur 2012

    Default Blur 2012

    I'm seeing Blur pop up on alot of lineup predictions for various US festival's 2012 lineups, including Coachella.

    I'd probably have to give away my Coachella ticket if they played because the announcement alone would give me a heart attack, but is there any evidence behind any of these predictions? No matter how small. Just wondering if anyone here is really Blur-saavy.

    There was some interview with Damon Albarn recently where he said he wanted to have Blur do some US shows next year, that's about all we got.

Really mixed up emotional time.

    Would be down to see them though. Crush with Eyeliner is my fave. Nightswimming.

    there was this....

    The Guardian also says that the reunited Blur "may" finally return to the U.S. to play a few shows. Um, yes please. (Asked about the possibility of any new Blur music, Albarn wasn't willing to say much.)
    and this.... (one of your posts, though i cant find the link now)
    http://coachella.com/forum/showthrea...t=11591&page=3

    Blur, he says, may reunite again, to play their old songs in the US, though when I ask him about the possibility of new Blur songs, I get a mumbled "don't know".
    any other year i would have passed it off as a possability of a tour, but a few US shows this year could deff mean a couple Coachella shows on back to back weekends. Not to mention if a band was reuniting, youd think theyd do it back in their home country..... so what US festival/show could change this....??

    we are speaking on a technicality here....

    Coachella on a whole is 1 U.S. Show

    but this year it falls on back to back weekends, which would constitute the term 'few shows'
