Blur Biography - Don't Miss Out on the Live Debut of The Magic Whip
Releasing their first new album in 12 years, fans are scrambling to get tickets to see this phenomenal group perform their new tracks live and in the flesh. Featuring the group's original line-up of Alex James, Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon and Dave Rowntree, the band's reformation has sent shockwaves throughout the music world, thanks to their legendary status in the history of Britpop.
Back in their heyday in the 1990s, the band enjoyed an initial rush of success with Top 10, "Madchester"- inspired hit 'There's No Other Way', before facing the danger of bankruptcy. During a trying tour of America the band's collective homesickness inspired the Britpop sound they're so famous for today, leading to a sting of Top 10 charting singles that secured a place in the canon of British pop, including 'Girls and Boys', 'Country House' and 'Song 2'.
Following a 12-year hiatus, the group are back with a brand new album that harks back to their 'Song 2' days - but with more mature overtones. Marking a return to form for the band, the 2015 album gave rise to lead single 'Go Out', debuted at a press conference in which Blur swapped the beer and alcohol of their younger years with water and a good cup of tea. Marking just the tip of the iceberg, the four piece have also announced their live return with a massive headlining date at this year's BST in Hyde Park.
