The newly reformed rockers will be headlining a special gig to mark the closing ceremony, however they insist this is only to please their fans.
Blur have spoken out about their dislike of the Olympics' commercialism (PA)
Frontman Damon Albarn told The Sun that he found the emphasis on branding and advertising at this year's Games to be 'depressing'.
'I'm just anti the capitalism of it all. We're not doing the gig for the corporate side of the Olympics, we're doing it for the human beings,' he said.
'It feels like you're drowning in commercialism at the moment. It's depressing. But I am into the table tennis so I would like to get some tickets for that. It would be an inspiration to see it at that level,' the singer revealed.
His bandmate Dave Rowntree admitted he'd scored tickets to a show jumping event, however Grahan Coxon said he was worried he'd have to miss out on the diving competition, despite booking seats.
'I've got tickets for the diving but that's the day before we go to Margate for a gig. We have a massive rehearsal so I don't think I can go,' he grumbled.
Blur will be taking to the stage at London's Hyde Park on August 12th alongside The Specials and New Order.
