Blur To Play In Coachella 2024

Get ready, music lovers! Coachella 2024 is set to be an absolute blast, and the lineup is nothing short of spectacular. With headliners like Lana Del Rey, Tyler, The Creator, and Doja Cat, you know it's going to be a weekend to remember. But hold onto your hats, because there's an electrifying surprise that's going to shake the desert – Blur is back.

Yes, you heard that right! Blur, the Britpop legends who gave us unforgettable hits like "Song 2" and "Girls & Boys," are making their grand return to the US stage after a nine-year hiatus. Their set at Coachella is already the talk of the town, and fans are buzzing with excitement. The band, known for their energetic performances and catchy tunes, is sure to deliver a show that's both nostalgic and fresh.

Blur's setlist is bound to be a mix of classic hits and perhaps a few surprises. Fans will be singing along to "Coffee & TV" and moshing to the raucous "Song 2." The band's ability to blend different genres, from punk to pop, ensures that their performance will be diverse and dynamic. And let's not forget about Albarn's charismatic stage presence – his energy is infectious, and he's sure to have the crowd eating out of the palm of his hand.

But Blur isn't the only reason to get excited about Coachella 2024. The festival is famous for its eclectic mix of artists, and this year is no exception. From the smooth sounds of Jhené Aiko to the energetic beats of Skepta, there's something for everyone. The return of No Doubt after nine years is another highlight, promising a set filled with nostalgia and good vibes.

Live at 100 Club - Blur leave fans delighted (Watch full gig)

The 100 Club, London. Exclusive, small, intimate, sweaty, bloody, amazing, "the best Blur gig ever" ... these are just some of the words used by the audience and press to describe the warm up gig in the small venue on August 2nd 2012.

Needless to say, Blur performed at their very top form. Highlights include 'Bugman', where Graham Coxon was just mashing it out on the guitar, and the song turned into something punk-like and fantastic. 'Oily Water' from Modern Life is Rubbish was also brilliant - it always is and sounds better live.

'Colin Zeal' surprisingly was also played - an unconventional track, but it has it's merits. Blur's reviving songs they rarely play live and favouring them over the normal singles collection. No 'Song 2' or 'Country House' this time, but 'Trimm Trabb' and 'Young & Lovely' was again played.

Forum member Goldilocks wrote: That was so awesome!! All the fun of being there but with A/C and room to move. And DAVE!! Nice to see him in these ones and he is just letting it rip. The Trimm Trabb drumming was epic. 

Forum member damon4president also said: Dave has been drumming better than ever at these gigs, he is on fire! During Trimm Trabb Damon just stopped and looked at him in awe, and started a chant of 'Dave! Dave' over Graham's guitar solo
