Blur’s concert at Hyde Park this Sunday (August 12) will be available to download and buy on CD.
The Britpop band’s headlining appearance at the ‘Best Of British’ closing ceremony concert for the London 2012 Olympics will be available to download 24 hours after the musical shindig…and will also be released fairly sharpish on compact disk!
The double CD will be called Parklive and will feature the Hyde Park performance, as well as a bonus disk with live performances taken from the band’s recent warm-up shows, and will be available next week.
You want more? Well, a five-disc version of Parklive with three CDs’ worth of live audio, a DVD about the Hyde Park gig, and a bonus disk entitled Blur Live at the 100 Club, will be available in November.
Blur will also be supported by New Order and The Specials at the event. Result!
