Blur recently added The Selecter to the line-up of support acts for their second show at Wembley Stadium this summer. The Britpop icons are due to play two huge concerts at the London venue on July 8 and 9 as part of their 2023 live reunion. At the first gig, Damon Albarn and co. will be joined by special guests Slowthai, Self Esteem and Jockstrap. Last month, it was confirmed that Paul Weller would open for Blur at Wembley the following evening. Now, two-tone ska outfit The Selector have been added to the bill.
The band shared the news on Instagram and wrote:
“From the 2 Tone ska revival to the present day, The Selecter has been a driving force in British music for over four decades.
“Their infectious mix of ska, punk, and new wave influences and politically charged lyrics have inspired countless musicians. The Selecter has continued to tour and release new music, most recently with their phenomenal album, ‘Daylight’.”
This year’s reunion concerts will mark the group’s first headline performances since 2015 when they toured in support of their eighth and most recent album, ‘The Magic Whip’. Additionally, Blur are scheduled to play an outdoor gig at Malahide Castle in Dublin as well as sets at Primavera Sound, Roskilde, Lucca Summer Festival, Flow Festival and Japan’s Summer Sonic.
