News update: Blur gigs and media, Gorillaz Converse, Damon and Afel Boucoum, Magician Impossible

G-U is on holiday at the moment but we're still managing to tweet - so the best place for the latest news at the moment is the G-U twitter at http://www.twitter.com/gorillaz_u where we've been keeping up with all the latest.

Firstly, the truly Gorillaz news we have is that Converse have, as we previewed earlier, released a new range of Gorillaz shoes. You can check them all out on the Converse site here.

Beyond that, it's all about Damon's band Blur at the moment (Jamie just got back from holiday, according to his Twitter!). They have been doing interviews promoting their live shows and especially their 21 disc anniversary box set, which is available now worldwide (there is also a vinyl box, and standalone 2CD reissues of all their albums available).

They are playing the following shows / sessions over the next couple of weeks:-

31/07/12 - Steve Lamacq show Radio 6Music live gig / songs 16:00 - 19:00 BST.
31/07/12 - Jo Whiley show Radio 2 live gig 2000 - 2130 BST
01/08/12 - Winter Gardens, Margate, UK
02/08/12 - 100 Club, London, UK
05/08/12 - Civic Hall, Wolverhampton, UK
06/08/12 - Civic Hall, Wolverhampton, UK
07/08/12 - Pavilions, Plymouth, UK
09/08/12 - Smukfest, Skanderborg, Denmark
10/08/12 - Way Out West Festival, Gothenburg, Sweden
12/08/12 - Closing Ceremony Celebration Concert, Hyde Park, London, UK

You can listen to the Radio shows wherever you are, and may even be able to watch them live as well. A BBC blog has all the info on how to access the shows - click here.

There's loads more links to Blur's recent media coverage on the Twitter - the recent Q magazine Blur cover feature, Blur on the culture show on BBC2, Damon talking about Blur's album Parklife to The Sun.

Blur also released a new iphone / ipad app. If you don't have an iphone or ipad you can check out some of the video from the app here

On the twitter you'll also find links to a performance and media interview with Damon and Afel Boucoum to raise awareness for the Sahel hunger crisis, and a video of Damon on the tv show Magician Impossible. Thanks for bearing with us and normal service will be resumed shortly.
