Woo-hoo! BLUR Plays First Show After Four-Year Hiatus!
Woo-hoo! Rock fans have been waiting for this and now it's finally happened! '90s Britpop/alternative rock unit Blur just played a reunion show, four years after announcing their hiatus and can we just say we're feeling heavy metal right now?

The surprise gig happened in London last Friday, during lead singer Damon Albarn's Africa Express show.
The set saw the OG Blur lineup (Damon, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree) play three songs – "Tender", their debut performance of "Clover Over Dover" (which they have never played live), and their hit rock anthem "Song 2". Check out the videos below!

The reunion was apparently just a one-off gig, but the band's members have all stated in past interviews that a full-blown comeback isn't impossible to happen.
