Blur have announced they'll be headlining the London Olympics closing ceremony alongside New Order, The Specials & more on August 12th in Hyde Park. The band are also set to play the Brits tonight, so expect a load of Blur videos to appear across the net later tonight/tomorrow.

Tickets for the show go on sale this Friday (24th) at 9am, with tickets priced at £55 plus the usual booking fees.

The 'Best Of British' angle is showcased beautifully in the poster below.
