Blur will return to the stage for a headline show at London’s Wembley Stadium on Saturday, July 8, 2023. Watch a trailer for the show below. “We really love playing these songs and thought it’s about time we did it again,” said Damon Albarn in a press release. Jockstrap, Slowthai, and Self Esteem will support the show.

The concert is billed as Blur’sr first headline show in 8 years, though the band regrouped to play a few songs at a 2019 Afrika Express show in London. Blur’s reunion album, The Magic Whip, came out in 2015. Last year, Damon Albarn released an LP called The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows. He has a new Gorillaz album on the way in 2023.
