Last bow for Blur at Brit Awards?

Blur star Alex James says there is a feeling that the band may be about to take their "last bow", ahead of their reunion at the Brits.

The quartet will perform five songs as they receive the outstanding contribution prize at the star-studded event on February 21, in what will be their first performance since a handful of 2009 shows.

Writing in The Sun, bass player Alex said: "Pulling the band back together is like reassembling The A-Team for one last job."

The star - now a farmer and cheese producer - said: "There is always a feeling that this may be Blur's last bow, which I suppose makes it all the more exciting.

"We've been asked to perform five songs. I met up with the band last week and we discussed what we will play. I'm more excited about playing some of the old hits again than winning. Winning prizes is nothing compared to the feeling of playing music."

Blur are being honoured with the outstanding contribution to music prize 21 years after the release of their debut album, Leisure.

Their performance at the event in London's O2 Arena comes 17 years after their only haul of Brit wins, on the back of their hugely successful third album, Park Life.

Blur fell apart following their 2003 album Think Tank, by which point guitarist Graham Coxon had already been axed from the line-up. However, the band regrouped in 2009, playing headline slots at major festivals, and there has been talk of recording together again.

Coxon and Damon Albarn have already warmed up for the Brits appearance by reuniting for a performance on Sunday night at a charity gig, which featured a new song, Under The Westway.
