Posted by at 11:30 am on December 19, 2011

Blur recently announced they had reunited and are in the midst of recording a new studio album, but no concrete details about a tour or live performances were mentioned—until now.

In a report by XFM, Blur bassist Alex James confirmed the band will perform live at the upcoming Brit Awards on Feb. 21 at London’s O2 Arena, where they will also be honored with the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award. It will be Blur’s first live performance in three years.

“We’re all very pleased. I saw the guys this week, we had a Christmas cuppa,” James said. “We’re going to play, which is brilliant, it’s like putting the Blues Brothers back together.”

Blur last won a Brit award in 1995, joining the ranks of other winners such as Paul McCartney, Sting, Fleetwood Mac and Oasis.
