Hi all, finally here was a lurker on here but with not much happening in the Blur world I never got round to joining, amazing news on Thursday and cant wait for the album.

42 now and feeling old lol, but when I see the lads looking so good gives me hope :D no sign of grey with them! 8-)

First album bought was Modern Life In Rubbish in 1993 and I was hooked, no internet so getting the b-sides on hard to find vinyl at record fairs was pretty cool back then, was about six months before I discovered my fave Popscene!

My live Blur History

1994 - Leeds Town & Country (Lost my 21st birthday watch in my first moshpit lol!)
1994 - Aston Villa Leisure Centre (Pulp supported, saw Damon and Phil in car park :D )
1995 - Milton Keynes Bowl (Rem support but blew them off the stage, my fave Blur show, they were simply on fire on a scorching day!)
1995 - Sheffield Arena
1997 - Hull Ice Arena (What a punk rock set list! http://vblurpage.com/gigography/1997/1130_hull.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; )
1999 - Leeds Festival (Surprised me finishing with Sing, but it was perfect...)
1999 - Wembley Arena (Singles Night, I Know took us by surprise for a few seconds ;) )
2009 - Newcastle O2 (Still brilliant with Damon diving into the crowd at least twice!)

...and some of you will know about me been a fan of the classic 80s comedy Sledge Hammer! already but here's a clip from the first few minutes of the first ever episode, explains my avatar!

Hi,

although I was never a member of the old forum I had been reading it for years and was shocked by it closing and discovered that you'd all moved on here. So I'm really glad to be a part of this! Hope to get on well with you lot.

Hi!

Long time lurker on the old Blur forum. I've been a Blur fan since 2002 and I remember being asked by a friend if they were still an active band then (3 years did seem a long time without a new album at the time!), along came Think Tank the next year and with no gigs near me on that tour and the wilderness years that followed it seemed like I had got into the band at the wrong time. Anyway, I did make it to Hyde Park in 2009 and 2012 and am looking forward to finally having a new album to listen to with the four guys back together.

Looking forward to joining the discussions with you all!

Hi everyone!

I'm a student from Yorkshire studying Film and Television with the hope of being a cameraman for concerts and festivals!

I have been a blur fan for as long as I can remember, even though I was only born a month before Parklife was released, so I like to think myself as the Parklife Baby (cringey, I know)

I wasn't fortunate enough to get tickets for Hyde Park 2009 but I did make it to Hyde Park 2012 and I have already booked tickets for Hyde Park this year!

Nice to meet you all! :)

Hi blur fans, I've just joined the forum, I used to post on the old forum and I met several people who posted when I saw blur play the 100 club in 2012.

I can't recall my old username so I'm on here as Mr Briggs :D

I'm possibly one of the elder statesman of blur fans and I've followed the band since the very early days, way back to early 1990

Hey there,

I'm Annie, 26 years old and from Germany. I've discovered Blur through a good friend of mine back in 1999 (I think...).
Saw them 2003 in Cologne and 2013 in Berlin.
Apart from that I've managed to see Damon in London, Berlin and Hamburg last spring / summer. I've met a couple of great people in Hamburg who might be here as well. ;)

Really looking forward to seeing them again in London this summer. :)
