After the Parklive Olympic show in London's Hyde Park this past year, it was unclear whether Damon Albarn and his fellow Blur counterparts were going to continue as a group. The suspense is over for fans, as it's been confirmed that the band will be headlining Belgium’s Rock Werchter Festival 2013, set to be held July 4th – 7th at Festival Park in Werchter.
In addition, although there are no details as to where else they are playing, it's been announced that Rock Werchter isn't the only place that's going to get to see Blur in 2013. Check out the band's Facebook announcement below.
"Thank you for waiting... Rock Werchter is about to announce that Blur will headline next July. We're excited... 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".
This is undoubtedly thrilling news for fans of the Britpop survivors, who this year whetted loyals' appetites with two new songs and a sprawling box set. Check out fan video footage of Blur performing their hit "Girls & Boys" during their Olympic closing performance in August below:
