Klaxons and Florence & the Machine will support Blur at the Manchester Evening News Arena this summer.

The show on June 26 is Blur's first date in Manchester as a four-piece for over 12 years and precedes their two Hyde Park dates

Enthusing about the support acts, Blur manager Chris Morrison said: “Every show Blur play this summer is going to be unique and different, so we’re delighted Klaxons and Florence and The Machine have agreed to join us for the evening.”

Florence Welch commented: “Woahhhh. I’m really excited about supporting Blur in Manchester. I can’t comprehend that it's happening to be honest!”
