Blur not looking to play Glastonbury: 'We don't want to overdo it'

Blur insist they're not interested in playing Glastonbury.

The reformed Britpoppers were linked with the festival after Friday night headliner Foo Fighters pulled out due to injury.

They were ultimately replaced by Florence + The Machine, but Blur told Yahoo that they weren't keen on landing the slot anyway.

Alex James said: "We did Glastonbury in 2009, I think that was one of the best gigs we have ever done. I think you can only do Glastonbury once a decade.

"We are really looking forward to playing around the world. We don't want to overdo it."

The bassist added: "I think Florence will step up to the plate there, I don't think they need Blur there on Friday."

This year's Glastonbury is due to take place this weekend.
