Blur will be joined by Klaxons and Florence And The Machine for the Manchester leg of their reunion amble.

The three acts will play the MEN Arena on June 26th.

'Woahhhh! I'm really excited about supporting Blur in Manchester,” wailed industry favour Florence Welch. “I can't comprehend that it is happening to be honest!”

However, it seems that the London dates, scheduled for July 2nd – 3rd in Hyde Park, will feature other support acts after Blur manager Chris Morrison promised every show they play this summer will be “unique and different”.

Blur will also appear at Oxegen, Glastonbury and T In The Park in the coming months.
