And the Best Live Act prize winner is... Blur!
Blur won Best Live Act in the 2012 Q Awards on October 22nd! The band beat other nominees including the legendary Stone Roses for the prize, and posed before the awards on the red carpet. Alex, being typical, carried a cigarette and the boys were dressed for the night in typical Brit-boys fashion.
This recognition may mean Damon Albarn's on-off wariness about Blur's future will shift balances - it seems that the people, and those in charge of the music business, want more Blur, more music and more tours.
Rumoured destinations for Blur's new 2013 tour are still to be revealed. So far, confirmed dates include Barcelona (Spain), Portugal and Belgium. Australia, Japan, Argentina and Britain are still unconfirmed.
We at BlurBalls interviewed an unnamed inside source who said that it is highly likely that Blur will release some more new songs, and even a complete album before their 2013 summer world tour. According to the source, EMI has already signed a deal with the band about a new album. No official confirmation from the band is present, however.
