A series of rare images of Blur are to go on display in London to celebrate the band's 21-year career.

Over 70 images from music photographers, designers and artists including Banksy, Julian Opie, Pennie Smith and Kevin Cummins will go on display at the Londonewcastle Project Space, London from the July 27 – August 14.

The exhibition will celebrate 21 years since the release of the band's debut album 'Leisure'.

Earlier this month (July 2), Blur debuted two new tracks, 'Under The Westway' and 'The Puritan' which were written for their forthcoming sold-out Hyde Park gig on August 12, where they will top a bill which includes New Order and The Specials. The gig is being staged to coincide with the closing ceremony of the London Olympics.

As a warm-up for Hyde Park, the band will embark on an intimate UK tour this August. The Britpop icons will play four shows, beginning at Margate's Winter Gardens on August 1. They will then play two shows at Wolverhampton's Civic Hall on August 5 and 6, before finishing off at Plymouth's Pavilions on August 7.

Blur will release a career-spanning boxset on July 30. Titled '21', the collection includes the band's seven studio albums as well as over five hours of previously unreleased material including 65 tracks, rarities, three DVDs, a collector's edition book and special limited edition Seymour seven-inch vinyl.
