Blur will headline their first show since 2015 at London’s Wembley Stadium next year.

However, the ‘Song 2’ rockers will reunite on July 8 for a one-off UK appearance.
The band will be supported by rapper Slowthai, Mercury Prize nominee Self Esteem and alt-pop duo Jockstrap.
Damon, 54, is the leader: “We love playing these songs and thought it was time to do them again.”
Guitarist Graham, 53, said: “I’m so excited to play with my Blur brothers again and see all those great songs again…Blur live shows are always amazing for me. A nice guitar and an amp turned on live and lots of smiling faces…”
Bass player Alex, also 53, commented: “There’s always something special when the four of us get into a room. It’s nice to think that on July 8 that venue will be Wembley Stadium.’
Drummer Dave, 58, added: “After the chaos of the last few years, it’s great to be back in London on a summer’s day playing some songs together. I hope to see you there.”
Each team member reported a reunion when it was time.
In August, Graham said: “That’s always been the case with Blur – they’ll do it when they have to and for no other reason. It doesn’t seem real to get back together and do gigs for a bit of spondage. We’ve got to be kind of focused on how we’re going to work. ».
