Blur are set to play a live show for BBC radio ahead of the comeback gigs in Hyde Park this August.
The performances will take place at the BBC's Maida Vale studios and will be broadcast on Radio 2 and 6 Music at the end of this month.
This announcement comes after the band debuted two new tracks during a live streamed performance at a secret west London location, the news provider reports.
Listeners of the radio shows will have the chance to win tickets to the live performances at Maida Vale, while they will both be aired on each of that station's websites.
The shows will be taking place on July 31st and will feature songs from their extensive back catalogue.
"This year marks a huge milestone for Blur as a band. The contribution they have made to the history of British music cannot be underestimated," head of Radio 2 and 6 Music Jeff Smith commented.
