Blur battles illness to perform at festival

Blur guitarist, Graham Coxton, fought against a case of food poisoning to ensure he would perform with his fellow band members at the T in The Park festival in Scotland.

As rumours spread that the band would not be performing their comeback, Graham spent the day in hospital. However, he overcame his sickness and although he was an hour and a half late, they were able to perform their headline gig.

Fellow headliners, Snow Patrol, were booed by the crowd when they said they would go on to do a double set if Blur couldn’t perform.
