Reformed Britpop heroes Blur are set to play Glastonbury, according to singer Damon Albarn.

There has been much speculation recently over whether the 'Parklife' quartet will play the Somerset event. Organiser Michael Eavis claimed they would, but admitted there was still work to be done on the deal.

Now it seems Blur have confirmed their appearance. In a new interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper Albarn said "yeah, we're doing Glasto this year. We were asked last year, but we turned them down."

Blur join Bruce Springsteen as the only confirmed headliners.

Blur announced their reformation late last year, and confirmed a pair of massive shows in London's Hyde Park. The group went on hiatus in 2003, after completing one album without guitar player Graham Coxon.

Singer Damon Albarn and long time friend Coxon shared a stage together on February 25th, performing a low key version of the Blur classic 'This Is A Low'.

Blur have also confirmed appearances at Oxegen and Scotland's massive T In The Park.

Glastonbury takes place between June 26th - 28th.
