Amy Phillips at Pitchforkmedia.com might refuse to be my friend on Facebook, but she dropped this interesting little nugget confirming the much-talked-about reunion of the original lineup of Blur on the Pitchfork site:
After much dilly-dallying, Blur have FINALLY confirmed that they are indeed reuniting, for real this time, on their website at www.blur.co.uk. Damon Albarn, Alex James, Dave Rowntree, and, yes, Graham Coxon will take the stage for a concert at London's Hyde Park on July 3, 2009. This will be their first full-lineup performance since 2000.
In a video interview on their site (email/mobile info necessary), the band says the reunion rehearsals have been like "putting the A-Team back together" and "like riding a bike."
No other future plans have been announced yet, but we wouldn't be surprised if a Coachella set was in the cards...
