Blur Coming To Malahide
News of these Wembley shows comes just months after Blur had already announced plans to perform at Dublin’s Malahide Castle on June 24.
Once again, this show will see Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Dave Rownthree and Alex James return to the stage.
“I’m really looking forward to playing with my blur brothers again and revisiting all those great songs… blur live shows are always amazing for me. A nice guitar and an amp turned right up and loads of smiling faces…”, Blur’s Graham Coxon said.
Alex James also added, “There’s always something really special when the four of us get in a room. It’s nice to think that on 24th June that room will be in Dublin’s Malahide Castle”.
Elswehere, Dave Rowntree explained that it was a relief to be returning to the stage with Blur following a chaotic few years.
“After the chaos of the last few years, it’s great to get back out to play some songs together on a summer’s day in Dublin. Hope to see you there”, he said.
