Blur are set to play a free show in Madrid on June 8 after their set at Primavera Sound Madrid was cancelled.
It has been noted that the Brit-pop icons were set to perform on the first day of the Madrid edition of Primavera Sound festival, however, yesterday (June 7) it was announced that it would be cancelled due to “persistent severe weather experienced in recent weeks that have affected the pre-production of the festival.”
They also added that the decision was made in light of the “adverse forecast that is expected for Thursday with heavy storms during the afternoon”. Other acts who had their sets cancelled included Yard Act, Halsey, Ghost, Le Tigre, Turnstile and more.
Now, it has been confirmed that Blur will be performing another show in Madrid later today, and tickets are free for Primavera ticket holders.
“Blur will play tonight at La Riviera,” the post read, confirming that doors will open at 8pm local time. “Bookings for these events will be completely free of charge and will be available through Accessticket from 16:00 exclusively for full ticket holders and Thursday day ticket holders.
“Only one ticket can be booked per person and access is subject to venue capacity and conditions,” it added. “Thursday day ticket holders will be able to come on any other day of their choice, regardless of whether they are attending any of these concerts today.”
It was also announced in the update that the Boiler Room x CUPRA programme will now be taking place tonight at a venue called The Bassement, and that doors for that will open at 5pm local time. Primavera Sound Madrid 2023 is set to continue with performances from the likes of Depeche Mode, Kendrick Lamar, Måneskin, Pusha T, St Vincent, Skrillex, ROSALIA, Japanese Breakfast, and more.
