um yes, blur are getting back together.

BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Blur confirm summer reunion gig

Quote:
Blur are reforming to play a huge live show in London's Hyde Park next summer - nine years after their last concert as a four-piece band.

Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree will reunite for the concert on 3 July.

It will be the first time the band have played in public since performing at London's Royal Festival Hall in 2000, before Coxon left the group in 2002.

Tickets for the gig, which will cost £45, go on sale at 0900 GMT on Friday.
this is quite possibly the best news i've heard in a very long time.
anyone else going to try and go?
EHHHHHHH??!?!?
HAAAAAAUUUUUHHH?!?!??!?!

people should be welcoming this news the same way parents feel upon news of a wanted pregnancy.

I know Laz is very excited about it.

yes, well I remember the old Blur, this reunion could be good for classics but not the classic image.

This is great news - but I'm nowhere near London, so the joy is cancelled out by the fact that I won't be able to see it.

Same here. There's no possible way I could get to this gig.

Same as said earlier....great news, better if they do new work, and a shame I cannot even attempt to go at this stage.

I would perhaps consider going to see the Stone Roses, honestly. But not Blur.
