Some devastating news for Blur fans this morning with the band announcing via their facebook page that they are cancelling their Big Day Out appearances next year.Siting “constantly shifting goalposts and challenging conditions of the organisers” the news comes just eight weeks out from the start of the tour.

Here is the statement published on their facebook.

“Devastated to report that Blur won’t be performing at BDO in 2014. It’s a shock that it has come to this.

Only 8 weeks to go, the band feels that with the constantly shifting goalposts and challenging conditions of the organisers, they can’t let it drag on any longer and want to make this announcement, to be clear to Blur fans that they won’t be there. We’ve done our very best to work with the organisers and considered every option to make it happen, but they’ve let us down and let everyone else down too.”

BDO CEO Adam Zammit has announced via twitter that a replacement act is being organised.
