Blur To Perform At Coachella 2013
NME reports that Blur have announced that they will perform at Coachella this year on April 12 and 19 in California. They have also announced more dates in Mexico, Hong Kong and Taiwan. These include Mexico’s Vive Latino Festival on March 16, followed by Hong Kong’s Asia World Arena on May 6 and the New Taipei County Stadium on May 9.
They reunited last year for a series of UK shows including a concert in Hyde Park to celebrate the end of the London 2012 Olympics. They will also play Hungary’s Sziget festival in August, as well as Primavera in Spain and Rock Werchter in Belgium, along with several European dates.
It’s unknown if they will play any more new material live. They wrote two songs (“Under the Westway” and “the Puritan” for the Hyde Park shows, and hinted that there could be more. Producer William Orbit said they were working on new material with him, but guitarist Graham Coxon said there will not be another album any time soon.
