Graham Coxon: ‘No more from Blur for now’

Guitarist says there's nothing on the cards for the foursome

Graham Coxon has confirmed that Blur have no further plans to play live together or do “anything else” as a band following their reunion this year.

The four-piece reunited to play live earlier in 2009, headlining Glastonbury festival and T In The Park as well as playing their own shows. Now Coxon has told NME.COM, in an exclusive video interview which you can watch by clicking on the right, that they have no plans for further Blur events.

“We’re in touch and we say ‘Wotcha’ and all that but nothing has been mentioned about any more shows or anything else,” he said. “Everyone’s slipped back into what they do when the Blur creature isn’t heaving around. Law and cheese and music, I suppose.”


Although the guitarist had no Blur plans, he has geared up his solo career following the band live dates. He is set to play live with musical guests under the band name The Graham Coxon Power Acoustic Ensemble in November.

Graham Coxon will play:

Manchester Royal Academy Of Music (November 11)
Edinburgh Queens Hall (12)
London Barbican Hall (28)
