Blur Planning 2013 Tour

Last August, Blur frontman Damon Albarn said the band’s Hyde Park show would be “definitely our last gig in this country this year and probably for a long time” — but despite initial fears that Blur would be calling it quits, it looks like they’ll be hitting the road again next year.

“Thank you for waiting,” the band announced on its Facebook page last Friday (Oct. 5). “Rock Werchter is about to announce that Blur will headline next July.”

An annual event held in the Belgian town of Werchter since 1973, Rock Werchter is one of the biggest rock festivals in Europe, with up to 85,000 attendees per day. Last year’s lineup featured stars from around the world, including Garbage, Pearl Jam, Jack White, Mumford and Sons and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

And it looks like that won’t be the end of Blur’s travel plans for the year, either. “We’re excited,” continued the Facebook post. “Hope to travel in 2013 to play to more of our lovely fans who we haven’t seen for a while. Don’t know where yet, we’ll tell as soon as we do. Stand by.”
