Blur to play Glastonbury 2009


Blur have been officially confirmed as one of the headliners at this year's Glastonbury Festival. The confirmation, published today (March 2), can be seen at the official Glastonbury website [link down].

Blur were asked to play the festival last year, but the idea was then turned down (see the news story Blur 'nearly' played Glastonbury from July 2008). Last week at Shockwaves NME Awards, both Damon Albarn and the festival organizer Michael Eavis said that Blur are playing the festival this year.

Damon told Daily Mirror: "Yeah, we're doing Glasto this year. We were asked last year, but we turned them down. We need a few more warm-up gigs to get back into it, ready for the big one. Glastonbury's great."

Glastonbury 2009 is already sold out, but there will be a limited amount of cancellation tickets available soon from www.seetickets.com/g2009 [link down]. The festival takes place on 24-28th June 2009. Other confirmed acts include Bruce Springsteen and Franz Ferdinand.
