It would be fabulous. But at the same time it's like the perfect torture for us fans. Almost no-one would be able to go to every night, so which one/s would you choose? And then knowing you aren't there on the other nights. :o The agony of choice.

wonder.land is running in July and November, but it's not clear how involved Damon will need to be on the night, as it were. I don't think he's performing like Dr Dee of course, but one kind of imagines he'll need / want to be back stage for at least some of it.

I'm sure more shows will be played in those months, they just haven't been announced yet. :)

Movistar Arena is a closed venue with capacity 16k people, which is weird... because the last time they did the concert in the cycling track space in the Nacional Stadium complex, and the attendance was about 25k people... so either they will see how it sells and add another date? or maybe add a second show in a smaller venue like they did in Mexico??
One can hope... anyways, the sound in Movistar Arena is fantastic! and I will be able to sit, I'm not designed to be crushed nearly to death in the crowd :lol:

while waiting of course... as opposed to waiting +3 hours, standing, under the sun and then almost fainting when the crowd went wild... I didn't feel well :s feeling so crushed didn't let me enjoy as much as I'd wanted to

Now a major music journalist in Brazil confirmed they'll be there in October.

http://www.popload.com.br/blur-no-brasi ... other-way/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Relevant bit:
Negotiations with the Brazilians were not working out until the last few days, but we suspect Time 4 Fun has got it, what allows us to assume there will be gigs in Sao Paulo, Rio and Porto Alegre, depending on the band's availability. Two or three gigs was what was being negotiated, according to our info. Let's wait for the confirmation.
I can't fucking believe they'll be giving proper gigs there *twice* since I've left and not anywhere close NY/Toronto/Montreal. It upsets me to no end

2 of the blur gigs are on sale now. Just Perth left, although it's 'No longer on Sale' does concern me slightly. I'm sure I'll be able to purchase in an hours time

I think I'm seeing a Christian cover band of Blur by the looks of that crucifix.

I've made a facebook event for it if anyone is coming ;)
