Blur will perform at the 2012 BRIT Awards

Iconic Britpop stars Blur will perform in their original line up next year, Alex James has confirmed. 

The cheese-making bassist told XFM that the band will reunite for a special performance at the 2012 BRIT Awards to celebrate winning the 2012 Outstanding Contribution prize:

"We're going to play, which is brilliant, it's like putting the Blues Brothers back together."

Before Blur had found out that they won the award, James revealed their intentions to meet up for a "Christmas drink" and explained to the NME that new music was possibly on the horizon:

"We're getting together for a Christmas drink next week which is nice. We still see each other all the time, more since we were all living out of a suitcase. We'll probably record again."
