Graham Coxon is gearing up to support his latest release with The WAEVE. He recently joined in for an interview with Guitar World to discuss his plans to deploy for Blur’s reunion shows.
Graham Coxon talks about the reunion
Blur recently announced plans to perform at a French festival next summer ahead of their massive reunion gig at London’s Wembley stadium. The Britpop stars are set to warm up for their July 8 show with a performance on the opening day of the Beauregard Festival in Normandy two days earlier (July 6).
Speaking to Guitar World, Coxon was asked about the recently announced 2023 reunion shows with Blur. He was questioned the reason as to what made now the right time to fire things up again.
“We always seem to drift apart and come back together, don’t we? We always tell people, ‘Look, man, this is what we do. We told you this was gonna happen back in 1994.’ Or maybe we just think that’s how people see it; maybe we’re deluded. I don’t know. There’s never any grand plan behind it, really. I guess it just seems like a nice time to have a look at these songs again.
“Maybe we’ll find a way to approach them a little differently. I think we just wanted to play some Blur songs again. It’s been the longest time since we’ve done anything, so it was about time we catch up with each other and make sure we’re not all super-insane. I suppose we’ve got to keep an eye on one another and make sure we’re all still on the same planet [Laughs]. We have to do that every now and then because we don’t see each other often.”
