Gorillaz Hold Blackout Gigs

Singer DAMON ALBARN is so determined to hide the human faces behind his animated band GORILLAZ the group will perform all their live gigs this summer (05) in complete darkness.

Albarn, acclaimed hip-hop producer DAN THE AUTOMATOR and artist JAMIE HEWLETT created the cartoon rockers in 2001, and are determined to protect the group's comic book mythology.

And Albarn refuses to even let guest stars show their faces onstage - including legendary actor DENNIS HOPPER, who performs on Gorillaz new album DEMON DAYS.

Albarn says, "As for the show itself, it would be one where the lights never come up.

"So if Dennis Hopper were to walk on stage, you would know it is him by his voice alone - as well as he silhouette."
