Blur are set to take the stage at Wembley Stadium, delivering two unforgettable nights of musical brilliance that will leave you breathless.
Get ready for an exhilarating musical extravaganza because Blur is about to set the stage on fire with not one, but two unmissable shows at the legendary Wembley Stadium.
As the countdown begins with just over a week left, the band has gifted us with their latest track, ‘St. Charles Square,’ straight from their highly-anticipated album, ‘The Ballad of Darren,’ slated for release on July 21st via Parlophone.
From the moment Damon Albarn belts out the opening line, “I fucked up, I’m not the first to do it,” the crowd goes wild, eagerly joining in with his infectious energy. As the band takes Europe by storm this summer, ‘St. Charles Square’ has quickly become a crowd favourite.
The chorus transports us back to the band’s earlier art-pop days, exuding a discordant swagger that only Blur can pull off. Albarn’s queasy exclamation, “cause there’s something down here, and it’s living under the floorboards,” is surrounded by compelling backing vocals that heighten the sense of impending danger, perfectly complemented by Graham Coxon’s marauding guitar prowess.
Can you believe it’s been eight years since Blur’s chart-topping album, ‘The Magic Whip’? Well, they made a stunning comeback just six weeks ago with the release of ‘The Narcissist,’ garnering over 10 million global streams and counting.
The Guardian hailed it as a triumphant return, stating that it sounds as if Blur never left the music scene. And let us tell you, Blur’s electrifying comeback was nothing short of a momentous occasion.
When Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James, and Dave Rowntree burst onto the stage for their first warm-up show at the Colchester Arts Centre in Essex on May 19th, they immediately reminded us why we fell in love with them in the first place.
Since then, they have performed their iconic hits, along with new tracks like ‘The Narcissist’ and ‘St. Charles Square,’ to over two million ecstatic fans across Europe. And now, they’re gearing up for their historic first-ever shows at London’s Wembley Stadium.
Prepare to be amazed because Blur has some incredible surprises in store. Their old friend and special guest, Phil Daniels, will be joining them for a truly unforgettable appearance on both nights at Wembley Stadium.
As if that wasn’t enough, the sensational Sleaford Mods will be gracing the stage for the sold-out Saturday, July 8th show. Joining them are the critically acclaimed English singer-songwriter and Mercury Prize nominee, Self Esteem, and the dynamic London-based electro-pop duo, Jockstrap.
But the surprises don’t end there! Sunday, July 9th, will witness the legendary Paul Weller and The Selecter opening for Blur, ensuring an unforgettable evening. And to keep the energy soaring, DJs Steve Davis and John Doran & Kavus Torabi will be spinning tunes, keeping the crowd entertained throughout these two unmissable summer nights in the heart of the capital.
It’s no wonder that Blur’s headline show on Saturday, July 8th, sold out within minutes, prompting the addition of a second and final show on Sunday, July 9th. The demand for tickets has been incredible, so if you haven’t secured yours yet, make sure to head over to Ticketmaster and grab them while you still can.
Trust us; you won’t want to miss this momentous occasion as Blur graces the iconic Wembley Stadium with their electrifying presence. Get ready to sing, dance, and immerse yourself in the magic of Blur’s music as they deliver a performance of a lifetime.
