Blur Frontman Says Don't Look For More Blur Dates


LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Blur fans hoping for a longer tour by the band after their successful reunion concerts will be sorely disappointed to learn that the band's frontman Damon Albarn has put the kibosh on the idea.

In a recent interview with Q Magazine, Albarn said said that a post reunion tour wasn't in the offing and he felt that "the same problems would rear their heads."

Albarn left the band in 2000 and the band went inactive after 2003. Since then, he's participated in a number of projects, including the hip-hop outfit Gorillaz (currently working on their third album) and The Good, The Bad And The Queen.

Blur reunited in June and July of 2009 to play a series of twelve concerts, including headline slots at Glastonbury and T in the Park. Fans responded strongly and the band played even two sold out solo gigs in London but it apparently wasn't enough to warm Albarn to the notion of additional dates.

"This is beautiful, what we've done and I don't want to ruin it," Albarn told Q Magazine. "I just can't do it any more. Because it will come back, the cynicism." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
