Arenas in Parklife: Blur announce two massive North American shows for this fall

Blur are coming back to Magic America — and this time, it’s ambitious.

The reunited Britpop titans will play a pair of stateside dates this fall: October 20 at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, and New York’s Madison Square Garden on October 23. Tickets go on sale June 20 at 10 a.m. via

Last time Blur were in New York, they played the intimate Music Hall of Williamsburg for a Converse Rubber Tracks Live show. So this is quite the step up and represents the band’s biggest stand-alone US dates in their 25-year history.

In sadder news, we’re told these will be the only North American dates for Blur this year.

Sorry, Boston.
