Blur announce four Olympics warm-up shows for August 2012

LATEST ANNOUNCEMENT: Blur has announced that they will play four warm-up dates in early August 2012. The official news was posted on Wolverhampton Civic Halls' official website (click here) one day earlier than the official announcement, which was scheduled to be on Sunday 2012.

The dates and venues are: 
  • Wednesday 1st August at Margate Winter Gardens
  • Sunday 5th and Monday 6th August at Wolverhampton Civic Hall
  • Tuesday 7th August in Plymouth Pavilions

Tickets are extremely limited and Blur have arranged a special pre-sale for fans, at 9am on Wednesday 16th May (ahead of the general on-sale of Friday 18th). 

Want to maximise your chance for tickets? For all fans, sign up now at and you will be sent a link at 9am on Tuesday 15th May, which will go live 24 hours later when you can use it to enter Wednesday's pre-sale. 

The tickets are priced at £35 each, plus a £3.50 booking fee. ID will be required on entry to the venue. It seems that there will be no gigs in London or Central, but so far, so good.

Additionally Wolverhampton Civic Hall can hold approximately 5000 people - providing you're not too late, it seems that securing a ticket will not be a problem.

Good luck to everyone who wants to buy tickets- remember, sign up from the link above and wait for the presale on the 16th May!
