Blur's Olympics gig 'probably last'

Blur will almost certainly go their separate ways forever after the Olympics, front man Damon Albarn has revealed.

The band's headline slot at the Games' closing concert in Hyde Park on August 12 will be their last hurrah - and there are unlikely to be any more Blur records, the singer said.

Asked if the Britpop quartet would play again after the summer extravaganza, Albarn told The Guardian: "No, not really...I hope that's the truth, that that's how we end it."

Asked if the group would bring out any more albums, he replied: "No, I don't think so."

He also appeared to rule out any further releases from Gorillaz, the other band he has enjoyed success with.

It was "unlikely" the group would write any new music, he said, adding that collaborator Jamie Hewlett felt the project had come to an end.

"I think we were at cross purposes somewhat on (our) last record, which is a shame," he said. "So until a time comes when that knot has been untied..."

Many followers assumed Blur had bowed out for good in 2003 after releasing their seventh album, Think Tank, but the group reformed in 2009 for a series of festivals around the world, including a headline slot at Glastonbury.

In February, bass player Alex James hinted that Blur's performance at this year's Brit Awards could be their final one, saying there was a feeling it could be the "last bow".

Yet only a day later they were revealed as the main act at the BT London Live concert in August, which will also feature The Specials and New Order.
