Blur’s Graham Coxon Says Band Plans to Take Live Shows Up a Notch
While diehard Blur fans might be fully satisfied by the band's 2009 summer reunion shows, Graham Coxon isn't. The band will headline a one-off gig in London's Hyde Park to mark the end of the Olympis Games this summer. That high profile slot will be preceded by festival shows in both Denmark and Sweden. That's when Coxon and co. plan to take things up a notch.
At the NME Awards (Feb. 29), Coxon shared the band's practice plans and goals for a personal best with the publication. He said, "We're going to start rehearsing soon and we've been back playing together for a bit. We're going to concentrate on making it a really nice experience in the summer. We're going to try and get it up a notch from 2009, which seems almost impossible to me in a way because the Glastonbury appearance was so phenomenally amazing. We're going to try and go one better."
Try and go one better? That's a win-win situation for fans. We're looking forward to seeing Blur top themselves as the Olympics come to a close.
