For the first time in years, Damon Albarn and Graham Coxon were on the stage together. It has been nearly a decade since the break up of their band Blur, but both musicians made up to it on the stage of Shockwaves NME Awards which was held at London's Brixton Academy on Wednesday, February 25.
Although missing the other two personnel, Alex James and Dave Rowntree, the performance was a surprise to the audience since it was not announced in prior. Albarn on the piano and Coxon on the guitar, they performed an acoustic piece of "This is a Low" which can be found on their 1994 album "Parklife". After the set, Albarn and Coxon left the stage arm in arm.
James and Rowntree however, are on the audience seat. They took the stage together once to present Best Solo Act to Pete Doherty. All the four members will be reunited later this summer when they headline London's Hyde Park.
Honoring the best through fans vote, NME Awards lined up also The Cure and Elbow as the other stage acts. Winners can be found here.
