    Next month, Blur is set to return to the road for her first live shows in eight years. Since confirming their initial comeback, the band has added to her upcoming itinerary with newly announced dates in the UK, Europe, Japan, and South America.

    Beginning next month, Blur will play a string of UK warmup shows ahead of festival appearances at Primavera Sound in Barcelona and Madrid. The band’s upcoming itinerary also includes headlining dates in Ireland and The Netherlands, as well as appearances at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival, Norway’s Øya Festival, and Finland’s Flow Festival. They’re also set to visit South America in November. Check out the band’s updated tour itinerary below.

    Tickets to Blur’s upcoming tour dates can be purchased here.

    Update: Blur have also announced the release of a new album called The Ballad of Darren.

    Blur last embarked on a tour in 2015 in support of their album, The Magic Whip. In 2019, they reunited for a brief three-song performance at an Africa Express performance staged by frontman Damon Albarn.


    Frontman Damon Albarn, who apparently doesn’t sleep, is riding high following a pair of standout performances from his other band, Gorillaz, at Coachella earlier this month.
