Blur have confirmed two large US performances in support of their first new album in 12 years, The Magic Whip. The Britpop legends will headline Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on October 20th, and Madison Square Garden in NYC on October 23rd.
The band previously visited America in April to serve as musical guests on Jimmy Fallon, which marked their first American TV performance in 15 years. They also played a small club show in Brooklyn. These dates, however, will mark Blur’s largest American performances since they headlined Coachella in 2013.
