“We’re very excited to be able to offer our customers such a sought after ticket-offer in partnership with Blur, one of the UK’s most iconic bands,” said Director of Amazon EU Digital Music, Steve Bernstein. “Blur have a huge summer ahead of them and Amazon customers will be first in line for tickets to their major Hyde Park show.”
