Blur members reunite for London premiere of ‘No Distance Left To Run’

Damon Albarn and co attend Leicester Square screening of new documentary

All four members of Blur reunited in London last night for the world premiere of their documentary No Distance Left To Run last night (January 15).

Held at the Odeon West End in London‘s Leicester Square, the film traces Blur‘s history – through their words – right up to and including their 2009 reformation shows.

The screening was the first time all four members of the band – Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree – had met up publically in Britain since concluding their reformation shows at T In The Park last summer.

The film was introduced by DJ and long time Blur supporter Steve Lamacq, while
the film’s directors Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, plus Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett, were in the audience.

Blur’s film will now be shown at selected Odeon and Picturehouse cinemas across the country from January 19, as well as the independent Broadway Nottingham cinema, while No Distance Left To Run is set for release on DVD on February 15.
