Blur World Tour 2013 - What's On

The long-awaited hopes that Blur will do a world tour may just be on the horizons. According to a band touring company, Blur is going to play a massive world tour for 2013 - and this time it's going to be truly global. 

In a recent INTERVIEW , Ian Huffman off X-Ray Touring revealed that "Blur is planning a relatively extensive world tour next year, including Europe, Japan, South America and Australia."

Huffman also said that the European dates will “likely run through to mid summer”. This means that a visit to Australia in the second half of 2013 is  very likely, meaning a new festival to headline: Splendour In The Grass.

Splendour In The Grass music festival is held in Byron Bay, and has featured many famous British bands  in recent years including Britpop band Pulp in 2011 and Happy Mondays in 2009. Hence, Blur is highly likely to be playing there with their fellow UK bands in late July. 

Oh, and Oasis may also play in Australia this summer. Liam Gallagher’s BEADY EYE is likely to make a visit to the music festival- a place on the Fuji rock festival makes him a decent chance for Splendour. 

Blur recently tweeted (official Twitter here) plans to play in places where they didn't toured for a long time. The last time Blur was in Australia was 16 years ago - and so, again Blur are most probably going to head to Australia next year.

Apart from rumours about Australia, Japan, Blur has just announced that they will headline Spain and Portugal's Primavera Sound Music Festival in May 2013, then the Rock Werchter Festival in Belgium next July 2013. 

They're also rumoured for UK's Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds and Japan. Looks like it's not just Europe after all.
