Oh wow, just had a look at the gig listings. They played my city in 93 and 95 I had no idea about 93. Can't see them ever ever playing here again though :( Graham and TGTBTQ have played here also and I've missed them all!

But is Lisbon's gig a festival or what?
I don't know .... i'm from italy and, being quite a recent blur's fan, i've never managed to see them live, only damon in everyday robots's tour last year.
so, i'm detrrmined to see them, two times the better. I'd like to go to one uk date, but not a festival, and maybe another one in italy...but no uk dates so far, apart from hyde park and the secret gig...still hoping...
I really want to see blur live!!!!!

God if they did another Think Tank-like tour I'd be so happy. Maybe we'd get a 2nd Democrazy if/when Blur comes to the states ;) Damon loves recording while on tour here apparently (Democrazy, The Fall).

And yes, sometimes the existence of Veikko's fantastic site just feels me with happiness :D

Last time they came here was 1997. Though gorillaz has come since

The days of full scale world tours of standalone gigs are long gone never to return, I'm afraid. I'd be 99% sure of that. The MO since the reformation in 2008 seems to be several standalone gigs in the UK and festivals festivals festivals. It's the quickest and easiest way to play the fewest amount of gigs to the greatest number of people. I was holding out hope that since they've got a new album this year that they'd do one last proper tour but so far, it's not looking like it.

I wasn't sure where to post this, but (to anyone that went to the 2009/2012 shows)..did they sell tour shirts?

This was the 2012 tour dates t-shirt. I bought one at the time: http://shop.blur.co.uk/en/blur/merchand ... shirt.html

Can't remember if there was one in 2009. I didn't buy one if there was anyway.

I remember some Vote Dave t-shirts and the Greyhound reunion gig poster t-shirts being sold in 09. Think a few other old style t-shirts were sold, an alternative version of the old McNormal and Chips t-shirt. I have no idea how I remember this!

Wasn't there a Green Parklife one?

On 2012 there was the white one with red and blue stripes right?

I guess there will be t shirts with the HP poster design this year like in 09 and 12

Green Parklife one rings a few bells. Yes, there was a stripey one. In 2012 I bought:

• Britannia with tour dates on the back
• Red and Blue stripe
• Red MLIR (there were various colours)
• Blue Milky
