Tickets are on sale now to members of Blur's fanclub.

However, a statement sent to fanclub members confirmed "further preview show announcements are due shortly."

Reunited band

As previously reported Blur announced they would reunite with all four original members for the first time in seven years in December 2008.

The band - Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James and Dave Rowntree - will play a series of huge shows this coming summer.

Appearances include two outdoor gigs at London's Hyde Park, plus headline slots at the Glastonbury, T In The Park and Oxegen festivals.

They'll also play at Manchester's Evening News Arena on 26 June.

Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon returned to the stage together for the first time since 2000 at this year's NME Awards at Brixton Academy in February.
