Blur and Gorillaz Not Over? The Saga ContinuesPosted by Rob Hedberg
While Damon has been quoted saying that Blur’s final show could be this summer at Hyde Park, and to not expect any touring or new music from the Gorillaz; a more recent interview, insinuated that much of that information was taken out of context, and went on to clarify that he and his Blur bandmates have not discussed the beginning or the end of the group.
When Asked if he thought Blur’s last show would be at Hyde Park this summer, he replied by saying, ”No. That comes from an article which was an interesting take on a very long conversation. I don’t know how we’ll feel when we play Hyde Park. Some days I feel one way and other days I feel the other. If you don’t see something as a career but as an important part of your life, you don’t know how you’re going to feel about it. We want to put on a great performance but nothing’s been said between us about the beginning or the end.”
When asked if the Gorillaz were through, Albarn said, ”When Jamie Hewlett and I have worked out our differences, I’m sure we’ll make another record. We’ve been through too much together for it to be that big of a mountain to climb. We’ve just fallen out like mates do sometimes. I’m not the only person to fall out with mates and then make up again – everyone does it.”
Albarn also proceeded to speak about how excited he was to play at Hyde Park this summer, going on to say, “I love playing with Blur – it’s one of the best feelings I’ve ever had. At the same time, though, I don’t want to cock it all up by staying around too long and making a fool of myself. At 44, there’s a little trepidation about jumping around onstage, but I love it.”
