Gorillaz are heading out on the road this summer, and to kick things off, they’re playing a tiny warm-up show in Portsmouth.
Their UK tour follows the release of their fifth album, Humanz, heralded a party album for a world gone mad, with features spanning from Vince Staples and Danny Brown to Rag‘n’Bone Man and — perhaps most surprising, given Gorillaz co-founder Damon Albarn was also the frontman of Blur — Noel Gallagher.
In true Gorillaz fashion, the record bends and crosses genres, and has prevalent political tones, having originally been conceived as a way to capture the dystopia that would ensue if Donald Trump became US President. Relevant, then.
Live Gorillaz shows bring to life the music of the virtual band, comprising 2D, Murdoc, Noodle, and Russel (pictured above), created by other project co-founder Jamie Hewlett.
Their Portsmouth show is at the Guildhall on Sunday 4th June. Tickets are on sale as of 9:00am on Friday 19th May. Book them online »
