There is a strong possibility that the iconic British band Blur will get together again in the future. At least that’s what the group’s frontman Damon Albarn would like to see happening.

In a recent interview with MusicWeek, Albarn discussed several topics and was asked at one point whether Blur played its last live show together.

“I really hope not. I love doing those gigs, they’re great, but it’s not something I need to do,” said Albarn.

According to Albarn, he enjoys working with Graham Coxon, Alex James, and Dave Rowntree, which is why he has every intention of getting back on stage with them.

“I only do it because there’s a joy in doing it. It’s an absolute treat. I can’t wait to sing “Parklife” again,” he added.

Albarn formed Blur in 1988, but the band had several long hiatuses since then. Their last reunion resulted in 2015’s album Magic Whip and subsequent tour. After that, the group members decided to focus on other projects.

The last time Blur were together on stage was in 2019 when Damon Albarn recruited Coxon, James, and Rowntree for his Africa Express show. The played “Clover Over Dover,” “Song 2,” and “Tender.”
