Gorillaz First World Tour

Gorillaz are set to take their Plastic Beach around the world later this year. The band have today confirmed they play 20 shows in North America (including their first ever show at Madison Square Garden) 10 nights across Europe including 2 nights at London's 02 Arena before heading to Asia and down under for 7 shows.

This is Gorillaz first world tour. The previously announced UK tour will now become part of the "Escape to Plastic Beach" World Tour, with the live shows moving from September into November to include an additional show at the Brighton Centre.

The live show is a wild and organic experience, with the Gorillaz band holding things down behind many featured artists and video animation, artwork and stage design by Gorillaz director collaborator Jamie Hewlett. While Gorillaz members Murdoc Niccals and Co have so far been thwarted in their attempts to appear on stage, the Gorillaz live band includes Damon Albarn, Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, Mike Smith, Cass Browne, Jeff Wootton and Gabriel Manuals Wallace, as well as additional backing singers, brass sections and a full string ensemble. Artists that have performed in previous shows have included among others the likes of De la Soul, Bobby Womack, Booty Brown, Mos Def and UK Hip Hop stars Kano and Bashy.
