Blur to perform for 6 Music and Radio 2

British band Blur are to perform at the BBC Maida Vale studios in London for BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Radio 2, with both shows streamed live.

Free audience tickets to each of the shows on Tuesday 31 July are also being offered to listeners.

From 4pm on 6 Music, Steve Lamacq will be chatting to the band live and asking how they feel as they prepare for bringing the curtain down on the 2012 London Olympics in Hyde Park next month. They will also perform a unique session. Then at 8pm coverage continues on Radio 2, where the band will perform an hour-long concert in front of a live audience.

The Blur session on Steve Lamacq’s show will be streamed live on the 6 Music website and the Radio 2 performance will also be available to watch live on the Radio 2 website.

Jeff Smith, Head of Music at Radio 2 and 6 Music, says: “This year marks a huge milestone for Blur as a band. The contribution they have made to the history of British music cannot be underestimated. Their live performances are truly fantastic and I can’t wait to hear them perform on both BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Radio 2.”
