Do they usually do venue gigs in Spain though? I thought they only did festivals (Primavera, Benicassim...)

Hmmm I don't know what to consider "usual" in Blur... XD They certainly haven't done it since their reunion, but to be fair it has all been about festivals since 2009 (with the exception of warm-ups).

Before they split, and even during the Think Tank era they used to include a couple spanish gigs in their tours though. Also TV performances, promotion in radios, etc.

Anyway, I'm willing to go to the UK if they announce proper dates and don't come here, but we are really close so they could pay a visit :P

I know, I know XDD But I'm tired of festivals and it'd be nice to see just THEM. But I won't complain anymore and will wait patiently for a while :)

I'm now wondering if we'll get late summer / early autumn dates in the UK. But surely there has to be something of a reasonable capacity before Hyde Park it help them get in shape? Running very short on time now though so just can't see it.
Maybe they don't feel they need to do warm up gigs this time round?

I can see a couple of those annoying MODE-esque "Win tickets to this fan only gig!" with about 24 hours notice in the run up to Hyde Park, personally. I hope not, but I guess that's better than nothing.

Not sure why people are doubting whether they'll play UK shows. They will, patience!

Who is seriously doubting there will be UK shows though?

What people are wondering is whether anything will happen here before HP, that's all.

Exactly, my prediction is: a few "win tickets for this gig" style things immediately before HP, and a larger venue / arena tour in the Autumn.

I reckon things like Brighton Centre, MEN / Phones 4 U arena / whatever they call it nowadays, First Direct Arena, Barclaycard Arena, O2 Arena

Shows will be announced soon enough. Expect the band to play all year because as Dave said in my interview, they have no plans after this year.
