BLUR today made the exciting announcement that they will kick off a summer of highly-anticipated live shows with the band’s first ever performance at converted church and local landmark Colchester Arts Centre on 19th May 2023.

This very special show marks the start of a short run of warm-up performances which will see the band visit Eastbourne Winter Gardens on 21st May, The Halls Wolverhampton on 26th May and O2 City Hall Newcastle 28th May ahead of two massive shows at London’s Wembley Stadium on 8th and 9th July.

Colchester is the hometown of band members Damon Albarn, guitarist Graham Coxon and drummer Dave Rowntree, with Damon and Graham first meeting as teenagers at Stanway School. It was Graham who later introduced Dave to Damon and bassist Alex James to form blur, with the band’s debut album ‘Leisure’ being released in 1991.

The band’s Wembley Stadium show on Saturday 8th July sold out in minutes with fans raring to see Alex James, Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon and Dave Rowntree come together again to perform their iconic and much-loved songs at their first-ever Wembley Stadium appearance this summer.

Pre-sale: Wednesday 26 April, 10am
General sale: Friday 28 April, 10am

There will be a maximum of 2 tickets available per show for each customer.
