Blur Make Triumphet Return at 2012 Brit Awards


Blur were the stars of the night at the 2012 Brit Awards which took place February 21. The U.K. rockers were honored with the Outstanding Contribution to Music award before closing the ceremony with a 5-song set.

As NME reports, Blur seemed humbled by the attention they were receiving and expressed gratitude during their acceptance speech.

“The last time we were here was 17 years ago and what happened on that night had a very profound effect on our lives,” said frontman Damon Albarn. The singer went on to thank a ton of people who helped Blur during their career.

“Right that’s it. Thanks very much for putting up with this.”

Blur started things off with “Girls & Boys” from 1994’s Parklife album. That was followed by the sports arena staple “Song 2″ which you can watch below.

Blur will be the closing act at an even bigger event as they will perform at a special concert at Hyde Park in London to coincide with the 2012 Summer Olympics.
