After months of rumors, informal lunches and supposed practices, Blur finally revealed today that the Damon Albarn-led band will reunite for a concert at London's Hyde Park on July 3rd, 2009. Guitarist Graham Coxon, who left the band during the recording of 2002's Think Tank, will join his bandmates Albarn, bassist Alex James and drummer Dave Rowntree. "It just felt it was right again," Albarn said of Blur's reunion, "It somehow feels like there's something for us to do again, we're not completely useless or pointless, we've got a reason to exist." One rumored reason to exist: Glastonbury 2009, which the band hinted it might headline. "We'll do something in London because that seems sensible," Albarn added, "but we're also playing in other parts of the country working up to [Glastonbury]." While no new album plans were revealed, Albarn has made it known he was eager to begin work on the third Gorillaz album in early '09.
