Damon Albarn - Damon Albarn: 'I Made $31 From Gorillaz World Tour'

British rocker Damon Albarn made just $31 (£20) from Gorillaz's star-studded 2010 world tour.

The Blur frontman took his group on the road for the Escape to Plastic Beach Tour with a stellar line-up, including The Clash's Paul Simonon and Mick Jones, and numerous guest musicians including Bobby Womack, hip-hop trio De La Soul and rapper Mos Def.

However, Albarn admits his big ideas for the shows left him with very little profit.

He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I had 70 musicians, I toured around the world. I made about 20 pounds by the end of it, so I won't be going on another of those."
