Blur to play show tonight (June 15)

Graham Coxon reveals how you can get tickets via Twitter

Blur are set to play a surprise, intimate gig in London tonight (June 15).

The band, who made their live comeback by playing their first gig as a four-piece in nearly a decade at the weekend (June 13), are set to play a small show in the capital to mark the release of their new collection ‘Midlife: A Beginners Guide To Blur’, which is out today.

Although the location will not be revealed until later today, according to Graham Coxon’s Twitter account the gig is on.

“Mornin all! ‘Midlife…’ is out today and to celebrate we’re gonna play some songs in London!” he wrote.

Wristbands for the free show can be claimed at box office of the O2 Academy Brixton from 11am (BST), although the show is not taking place at that venue. Tickets are limited to one per person, with 170 available on a first come first served basis. For more information head to
