Blur for Oxegen

Blur are set to make their one and only Irish concert appearance this year at Oxegen.

It’s a major coup for the festival given that the reformed Britpoppers have sold-out two 55,000-capacity gigs in London’s Hyde Park.

Tickets for this year’s Punchestown extravaganza go back on general sale at 8am on Friday March 6.

Oxegen 2009, which is promoted by MCD, takes place on 10th - 12th July at Punchestown Racecourse, Naas.
