Italian Performance Has Been Added to Blur’s 2023 Reunion Tour Schedule.
As part of their preparations to reunite in 2023, Blur have revealed that they will be performing at the Lucca Summer Festival in Italy; further information can be found below.
Earlier this month, the British pop music icons announced the specifics of a big one-off reunion show to take place at London’s Wembley Stadium in the summer of 2023. They later announced a second date due to the “phenomenal demand” for tickets to the show.
After this, information regarding an additional date for the French festival and a show at Malahide Castle in Dublin was announced.
Now, the band has added yet another European event to the ever-growing reunion tour, and they will perform at the Lucca Summer Festival in Tuscany on July 22, 2023. The performance will take place at 11 a.m. Central European Time on Friday, December 2 from here.
On July 8th, Slowthai, Self Esteem, and Jockstrap are going to be there to provide support for the band. It is yet unknown whether all three groups will stand behind them the following evening.
At the beginning of this month, frontman Damon Albarn gave an interview in which he discussed how he lived up to the anticipation of fans for the long-awaited shows.
About the band’s best songs, he asked the presenter of Apple Music 1, Matt Wilkinson, “Just, can we play them with the honesty they deserve, because it’s like time travel, isn’t it?” He was referring to the experience of listening to the band’s greatest hits. “And people really don’t want to see you fiddling about with these things,” you said before. It’s like, no, oh, we’re going to an entire concert, but all of our songs will be reinterpreted in different ways. The answer is no; nobody would find that fascinating.
Drummer Dave Rowntree, on the other hand, referred to the band’s reunion as “a dream from the wish list.”
“As it turns out, it is really tough to organise anything like this, what with all of the technical resources, employees, and different locations for the games. According to what he said to Sky News, all of these qualities are severely deficient.
