Blur, Oasis’ Britpop Rivals, To Reunite Next Summer


Blur! You may know them as Oasis‘ hated rivals in the ’90s Britpop scene…or you may know them as the guys who wrote the “woo-hoo!” song. The group’s original line-up will reunite at England’s Hyde Park in July 2009 for their first show in almost a decade. Since the departure of guitarist Graham Coxon during the recording of their final album, 2002’s Think Tank, bandleader Damon Albarn focused on hit projects like Gorillaz while the rhythm section busied themselves with documentaries and political activism. Only the Hyde Park show has been announced so far, the band promises more in the future. “We’ll do something in London ecause that seems sensible,” said Albarn to the NME, “but we’re also playing in other parts of the country working up to there.”
