More UK shows in September would be my guess too. They're in Ireland anyway so why not? Plus there's more to Blur than just Damon, if the other three want to play in London for example then I doubt Damon would say no just because he's recording a new Gorillaz album.

Surely they'd have been announced by now though, if that was the case? A quick Google suggest Damon's November RAH gigs were announced on 30th July.

Yes, sadly, that's true. :(
Every day passing without announcement is lowering the chances of more Europe dates. It's very strange because Europe it's their biggest fan base, but maybe they think it's enough with the dates done until now.
I was so hoping for a Italy date.....at least I've seen them in Paris, but the problem with Blur is that when you see them live, you then enter in Bluroholic mode..and you really need to see them other times!! 8-) Now, i'm starting to show withdrawal symptoms :| :(

I was sooo hoping for more gigs as well. Guess RAH in November is a pipe dream indeed given they would need to announce that around now... But smaller European or at least UK dates might still happen in September. After all, they only announced the June warm-up shows in early May, so you never know.

I've said all along that the only disappointing thing about this period (and I feel bad saying that anything is "disappointing" because it's still amazing that we good an album, and a brilliant album at that) is the lack of TMW songs in the main gigs, so did hope for a proper Blur gig or two at the end of the year where they could get away with playing things like TATMOU.

Would be great, but can't see it happening as time passes.

Couldn't agree more. It does feel churlish to complain at all considering all we've had (moan, moan moan). I do just wish some more 'gig type' venues instead of festival / field type stuff could have been accommodated later in the year to give the fans a chance to hear a bit more of this wonderful album live.

Makes it look even more likely their US "tour" will remain just the two gigs on the coasts. Ah, well.

I think it's pretty much what you see is what you get.
Maybe they'll squeeze in an extra date here or there if it fits in easily, but I believe any large date announcements are over and done.
