Drum roll, please. After numerous delays, the Big Day Out has announced the replacement act for Blur.

Beady Eye will take the British band's place at the Auckland concert in January.

The Hives and Deftones have also been added to the lineup.

 

Ticketholders unhappy with the new additions can apply for a refund at bigdayout.com.

The new lineup received a mixed reaction on Twitter.

Jordan Giblett said Blur could have at least been replaced with another big name act.

Although Greg Pikitis said the Deftones announcement could sway him to buy tickets.

Beady Eye was founded in 2009 by Oasis members Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell and Chris Sharrock and Kasabian's Jay Mehler.

The Deftones are an American metal band that have been touring since 1988.

Swedish group The Hives are known for their flamboyant stage presence. 

The new acts were required after Blur pulled out of the event on November 24, saying they could not reach agreement with the concert organisers.
