Gorillaz

Gorillaz has confirmed an historic, rare, and not to be missed North American tour. The tour, produced by Live Nation, is Gorillaz’ first Stateside trip since the 2018 trek that concluded with the inaugural Demon Dayz Festival L.A., described by UPROXX as “truly something special to see,” and is the bands only planned North American outing on the horizon. The world’s most successful virtual act will once again be brought to life by Damon Albarn and the 14-piece Gorillaz live band — aided and abetted by a varying cast of guest performers — for a series of 21 unique and unforgettable arena dates across the U.S. and Canada (plus a previously announced headline appearance at the Life Is Beautiful festival) beginning September 11 in Vancouver, BC and wrapping up on October 23 in Miami, FL. 

The Gorillaz live experience hailed by ROLLING STONE as “an overwhelming pop spectacle, with Damon Albarn’s steady presence to keep the audience focused” draws on 20+ years of genre-bending, paradigm-shifting, consistently innovative musical brilliance. Since their creation at the hands of Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, singer 2D, bassist Murdoc Niccals, guitarist Noodle and drummer Russel Hobbs have amassed an unparalleled arsenal of classic tunes including “Clint Eastwood,” “Tomorrow Comes Today,” “19-2000,” “Feel Good Inc.,” “DARE,” “Dirty Harry,” “Kids With Guns,” “El Mañana,” “Stylo,” “Superfast Jellyfish,” “On Melancholy Hill,” “Saturnz Barz,” “Andromeda,” “Strobelite,” “Humility,” “Hollywood,” “Tranz,” “Momentary Bliss,” “Désolé,” “Aries,” “Strange Timez,” “The Pink Phantom,” and literally dozens more. The BRIT and GRAMMY Award winning band’s albums include Gorillaz (2001), Demon Days (2005), Plastic Beach (2010),The Fall (2011), Humanz (2017), The Now Now (2018) and Song Machine – Season One: Strange Timez(2020). A truly global phenomenon, Gorillaz have achieved success in entirely ground-breaking and unique ways, touring the world from San Diego to Syria, Montevideo to Manchester and winning numerous awards including the coveted Jim Henson Creativity Honor. The band is recognized by The Guinness Book Of World Records as the planet’s Most Successful Virtual Act. 

Gorillaz is currently bringing its spontaneous globe-trekking carnival to stages from South America to Europe, on its current 2022 World Tour. The Fall 2022 dates comprise its only currently planned visit to North America. Support from Vancouver through Atlanta will come from EARTHGANG, while Jungle will support in Orlando and Miami.
