Blur announce summer warm-up dates
Date Posted: 16/05/12
Kings of Britpop Blur have announced four warm-up dates ahead of their huge performance at the Olympics Closing Ceremony Celebration in London's Hyde Park in August.
Short breaks to the seaside may be in order for fans in the south-east, as the band plays an unlikely show at the historic Winter Gardens in Margate on Wednesday, August 1st.
They then return to the Black Country to play Wolverhampton's Civic Hall on Sunday, August 5th and Monday, August 6th, before playing the final warm-up date at Plymouth Pavilions on Tuesday, August 7th.
Ahead of the dates Blur are to release Blur 21: The Box on Monday, July 30th to mark 21 years since the release of their debut album Leisure in 1991. The Box will gather the band's entire body of work since then.
This includes more than five and a half hours of previously unreleased material on top of their seven studio albums, rarities and three DVDs. It also comes with a limited edition book and a special seven-inch Seymour vinyl.
