Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s virtual cartoon electro-hip-rockers, Gorillaz return with the new album, Plastic Beach and the 'Escape to Plastic Beach' UK tour. See Gorillaz live at MEN Arena Manchester (12/11), The O2 London (14 & 16/11), Birmingham NIA (17/11) and Brighton Centre (18/11).
Gorillaz concerts are more 'happenings' than a regular live events. Their Glastonbury set saw over 100 guest musicians performs with Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, who are also taking great care of the visual presentation and live production of their Gorillaz project and its fictional cartoon members, 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Russel Hobbs and Noodle. The forthcoming Gorillaz live dates are no exception.
The stunning visual side is equalled by the music and Gorillaz' latest album, Plastic Beach, continues this tradition with another batch of infectious pop gems and even trumps with a list of contributors that reads like a who-is-who in music. Velvet Underground’s Lou Reed, The Clash’s Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, De La Soul, Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys or Snoop Dogg are amongst the impressive list of guest musicians that joins the Gorillaz gang and helps pushing the boundaries a little bit out of our comfort zone.
Opening acts for their November dates are De La Soul, Bobby Womack, The Fall's Mark E. Smith, Kano and many more. Secure your Gorillaz tickets now on GET ME IN! and experience Gorillaz live on tour!
