Blur’s performance at the Glastonbury Festival is already being spoken of as one of the all time great comeback shows. In tribute, we’ve compiled a list of the ten best rock’n’roll comebacks.

This list is not just a selection of reunions. Many big bands have reformed over the years but very few could claim to have had a truly successful ‘comeback’. Criteria for inclusion are as follows:

a) The band or artist must have had noteworthy success in their earlier guise.

b) As a collective, their releases and live shows were either non existent, only attended by apologists/stalkers/family friends for at least five years or critically panned.

c) Their return must have been as commercially or artistically significant as before.
