They surely can't be going to america just for that, so there may well be some other stuff!

I guess they're dead set on doing America, then. Fallon's pretty big.

This should be excellent!! Highly doubtful the band will play any shows while they are over there but more TV appearances would be great. I don't see them going over for ONE TV show. Conan? SNL? Huge.

Apparently there's 3 episodes left of SNL this season, and the musical guests are Wiz Khalifa, Florence + The Machine & Rihanna. So that rules SNL out. Nothing listed for Conan, but that might be subject to change.

Having to do this research myself, because Blur's social media never posts about this stuff :p

Pyongyang, Ghost Ship or My Terracotta Heart would be the songs to please american viewers. ehh, what am I on about... those are just songs I love

I'd love them on Conan. Since I love Conan and Blur, i'd be able to sit through the whole show. I like Jimmy Fallon, but nothing on Conan!

Conan could be very likely then. And yeah, the Facebook page is useless. They've posted NOTHING about any of the shows they are playing, minus Australia and Hyde Park, and don't mention TV or Radio appearances. This place is the best place for breaking Blur news. We are on the ball, they are not. ;)

ratings-wise Fallon is by far the biggest late night show over here, especially with younger viewers. Dwarfs Conan, even. So this is a pretty big deal!

Well, that's the American tour sorted then. They can do Fallon and maybe another late night show and "play" for millions of Americans without having to go around the country. It's what they did at Coachella but to a national captive TV audience...brilliant, really! :lol:
