    well blurs self titled album in 97 did pretty damn well and sold bucket loads in the US

    also its not a question of if theyre big enough in america, are they big enough with the coachella crowd
    i dont know anyone from LA that doesnt love blur

    if black keys can headline
    if at the drive in are big enough to sub headline
    if freakin bon iver can subheadline
    then yes BLUR can headline for sure

    Would love Blur but they won't headline.

    Comparing them to Black Keys is not accurate. Black Keys get played CONSTANTLY on just about every
    Los Angeles radio station for the past couple of years. And they are playing basketball arenas right now.
    Blur at the peak of their popularity played the palace in LA and that holds maybe 1000, maybe. They would
    be fantastic, but won't headline. Compare them to Oasis who had a whole bunch more hits in the US - they
    could headline a Friday night, and they sold out the Hollywood Bowl last time they played in LA.

    It's the same thing that people said Pulp and Pavement should have headlined - and how many people were
    at their shows.

    i'd go to coachella just to see blur - the exact kind of band that should be playing the polo fields IMO.

    They sold out the Palladium at the height in 1997. But yeah definitely not big enough to headline and I'm a guy that flew to London in 2009 to see them.

    They will be at Coachella 2013 though.

    Thanks for The Stone Roses and blur!!! Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Electrelane, Dum Dum Girls, SISU, HUM, American Analog Set, Unrest, Lush, Inspiral Carpets, th' faith healers and Chavez for 2014 please!

    they're far bigger than PULP, and PULP were 3rd down in the lineup.

    Wasn't Blur like... 5th billed in 03? I know Graham Coxon wasn't in the band at that point, and having him back means higher billing.... but to jump from 5th to top billed? No way. Blur would be 2nd or 3 billed tops.

    They're making a substantial jump from where they were last time around. That's my guess.

    I wouldn't say that. I feel like they could play at least as big if not bigger venues then Pulp played in America last year.

    4th overall billed in 2003 to possibly being the 2nd overall name billed 10 years later is a HUUUUUGE jump, right?

    Since they have done nothing of consequence as a band since then, yes.

    Fair enough. I think we can all agree that most Americans are dumb though.
