The Blur man is stepping out on his own

Blur’s Alex James is set to play a rare solo gig.

The bassist will appear at the Whitechapel Gallery on March 31 as part of their annual fundraiser event Art Plus Music.

James will perform a harmonic score accompanied by space-age visuals, after which he’ll be joined by Betty Boo for a rendition of the pair’s new single ‘Wigwam’.
