Graham Coxon: 'Blur could play more shows'

Guitarist believes the band could continue with gigs abroad

Graham Coxon: 'Blur could play more shows'
Graham Coxon has said there could be more Blur gigs.

The guitarist said the band might follow-up their shows in June and July by staging more concerts abroad. The comeback shows were almost all in the UK and Ireland, apart from one in France, in Lyon on July 5.

"We're talking about doing some more shows abroad... I'm not sure how much I can say about that, but we're definitely talking about it," he told XFM.

Coxon added that the band had also considered writing some new songs.

"I think I said that'd be quite good fun. That's as far as it's gone," he said of Blur's future plans. "We didn't bother really talking about it, we were just having a good time. We didn't want to put any adverse 'Gs' onto it."

As previously reported by NME.COM, Coxon said that he was interested in writing and recording another Blur album, but the band had yet to discuss the idea.

The guitarist also indicated that any new material would be unlikely to surface in the near future.
