I know 2009 was the pinnacle in terms of emotions but 6 years later with the addition of new material...they'd be loved. 2009 all over again. I'm sure they'll be asked and after the reception they've received at every show so far I think they could be tempted. We'll have to wait and see...obviously most people will be casual Blur fans though.
the crowd in 2009 didn't feel like casual fans :lol: everyone in the band has said glastonbury was their favourite/best ever show, so yeah, they could go back and play a great set, but it could never top 2009. Is that a reason not to do it? I don't know. For what it's worth (nothing really) there is a lot of support for Blur to fill the slot on the Glasto facebook page, and all the 'who could replace Foo Fighters' articles list them as the 'obvious choice'.

feels super weird that 2009 was six years ago :shock:
I should have been clearer, sorry. I meant that if Blur DO headline then not as many hardcore Blur fans will be there compared to in 2009 when Blur were announced months in advance. :)

yeah, I guess, maybe. Though even in 2009 the festival sold out before blur were announced as headliners or indeed even before they'd announced they were reforming. I just lucked out already having tickets 8-) sure, there are resales closer to the festival, but they're for a fraction of the tickets in question. So I doubt it would make much difference either way

I'd say they probably couldn't announce it until those gigs are over so it doesn't affect any sales. So, if it is Blur, they'll probably announce it on Sunday.

If they were announced I reckon they'd have to dust off Country House though.

Probably. Glastonbury, especially if parachuted in last minute, would need to include all the favourites to placate the varied audience.

They've just been talking about it on 6 Music and they were speculating on possible replacements, based on which bands are touring and available that night. Names included Blur of course, Fleetwood Mac, Muse, AC DC. Matt Everitt suggested Florence could step up to the headline slot but can't see that myself.

Let's face it, it will probably be Muse.

Nope - they are playing in Sweden on that day, just had a look at their tour dates.

I don't think Blur should do it. They've already headlined twice in their career plus they're already doing Isle of Wight. If they could book AC/DC that would be brilliant.

Blur are probably the only band in a position to step into the slot at such a late stage. But I think they'll just re-jig the existing line-up and give it to Florence.
They're big fans of her and have said in the past she was a future headliner.

A sign of the times when someone as piss poor and insignificant as Foghorn & The Machine might HEADLINE Glastonbury. Dear Lord.

Damon has the premiere for Wonderland coming on, not sure about Glasto and think he still suffers from the Gorillaz gig "disaster"

I may be a bit high off 4 in a week but it's been amazing and exhausting and worth it. good fun good people and I've had lovely waves of nostalgia for how it used to be and is again. Glasgow was the best and going from having 1 ticket at 6:55 to all 3 of us in at 7:20 was a miracle we still can't get over. Roll on Hyde Park and New York. They're playing at the best form of their lives and enjoying it too.
And I had an ice cream from an ice cream van yesterday that was playing the tunes. :D

Blur (through a spokesman) have ruled themselves out now, according to NME.
