Blur have extended their 2023 reunion tour with a massive concert in Dublin

Blur have added a Dublin gig to their ever-expanding 2023 reunion tour – see full details below and buy tickets here.

Earlier this month, the Britpop heroes confirmed they would be back next year for a huge concert at Wembley Stadium on July 8, with a bonus show at the venue the following day.

After adding a date at a French festival, the band have confirmed that they will return to Ireland on June 24 next year to play at Mullhide Castle in Dublin.

Tickets go on sale at 9:00am GMT on Friday, November 25 here.

Watch the trailer for the new concert below.

After the Blur reunion was announced, the band’s drummer Dave Rowntree described the comeback as a “bucket list” dream.

“We’re a band that has done almost everything there is to do… an iconic place, an iconic place. It’s really exciting,” he said.

“[Wembley es] one of those iconic places that is secretly on your bucket list, even if you pretend it’s not. I sincerely hope that we are a band that can fill a stadium like that. I don’t want it to be four people and a dog.”

Bass manager Alex James, for his part, has joked about the possibility of new music from the band. Blur’s eighth and final studio album, “The Magic Whip”, came out in 2015.

More could follow the four gigs announced as Colchester City Council’s culture officer has asked Blur to play a warm-up gig in the city before their massive reunion gigs at Wembley.

As the Daily Gazette reports, frontman Damon Albarn grew up in Colchester and met guitarist Graham Coxon when they were both studying at Stanway School (then known as Stanway Comprehensive).
