Blur To Perform At Brit Awards 2012

Blur will be performing at the Brit Awards 2012 as they pick up their 'Outstanding Achievement Award', it has been confirmed. The band's bassist Alex James told XFM radio listeners, "We're going to play, which is brilliant, it's like putting the Blues Brothers back together."

The chart topping band won four Brit Awards while at the top of their career with 'Parklife', taking home best album, best single, best video and best group in 1995. Blur reformed briefly in the summer of 2009, including an emotional performance at Glastonbury (see video below) - but fans were left wanting more after the Britpop band went their separate ways once again.

Alex James remained tight lipped about the future prospects of  Blur returning to the music world with a tour or new songs as he spoke to XFM, "Well, lets hope - heritage year next year..... be good wouldn't it? I wish I could tell you more. I'm sure it will happen one day but I don't know when. It's quite nice to keep it special."
