Ahead of their major comeback tour, Blur reunited with Phil Daniels for a live performance of ‘Parklife’, which you can check out below.
The actor who can be heard narrating the 1994 Britpop hit, joined the band on stage at a warm up show in Eastbourne earlier this week.
This comes as Blur announced a second date at London’s Wembley stadium, which will see them supported by Paul Weller. The band fronted by Damon Albarn will take to the stage at the venue on July 8 and 9.
These gigs will take place ahead of a set of European festival shows from Blur.
Last Friday, Blur played their first gig at Eastbourne since 2015, which saw them perform a mix of classic tracks, as well as new songs from their latest album, ‘The Ballad Of Darren’.
Joining them on stage on the night itself was actor Phil Daniels, who music lovers will remember for narrating ‘Parklife’.
Check that out below.

Blur Frontman Would “put money on” Oasis Reunion
Speaking of reunions, Blur frontman Damon Albarn said he is confident that Britpop rivals Oasis will reunite.
The singer is so confident that he is stated that he would “put money on” the estranged Gallagher brothers putting their differences aside, and reuniting the band.
“I can guarantee they’re going to reform”, Albarn said when asked about the Gallaghers patching things up. “In fact, I’ve put money on it”.
“They’re brothers and it would be wonderful to see them reconcile”, Albarn continued. “The only funny thing is that our two nights at Wembley will be dwarfed by their SEVEN!”.
