Blur are set to make Brit Awards history tomorrow night (February 21).
The band, who will pick up the 'Outstanding Contribution To Music Award', have planned an 11-minute live set to close the ceremony – the longest ever given to a recipient of the award.
James Corden - who will host the event - told Xfm: "The show is going to be incredible. Coldplay are opening, which will be huge. They have spent a fortune on pyrotechnics to make it something really special.

"Blur will perform for 11 minutes at the end of the show - more than anyone has been given before for the 'Outstanding Contribution To Music Award'. Add Adele, Ed Sheeran and Noel Gallagher and you've got an incredible lineup."
Previous winners of the award include Oasis, Paul McCartney, The Who, U2 and Queen.
Meanwhile, Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse will be honoured at tomorrow night's BRIT Awards (February 21).
Organisers of the awards have decided to plan tributes for both singers during the ceremony.
A source at the awards said ‘Whitney and Amy are two of the biggest female stars in the history of music. Both have made their mark onstage at the Brits in the past,’ explained my backstage source.
‘Something would feel missing if both their legacies weren’t remembered at the show.’
