Gorillaz Australian tour
Wed 21st Jul, 2010 in Local News
The rumours have been running rampant all week (with a little help from some cheeky Murdoc tweets) and now we can officially confirm the dates and venues for the first ever Australian Gorillaz tour.
This December Damon Albarn is bringing the Gorillaz full live experience down under for the first time ever and if the band’s performances at Glastonbury and Coachella earlier this year are anything to go by, we are sure in for a treat.
The band’s most recent shows have seen the full Gorillaz entourage onboard including De La Soul, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, Mos Def, Gruff Rhys, Shaun Ryder and Bobby Womack. And whilst we can’t yet confirm which guests will be joining them down under, we can reveal that there are some exciting additions to be announced very soon.
The arena sized shows will not only see the band performing tracks from the gorgeous new album Plastic Beach but will feature a huge production including multi-media video, animation, artwork and film which in ‘Murdoc speak’ translates to “a phantasmagoria of sounds, colours and assaults on the senses.”
FasterLouder is pretty damn excited to present Gorillaz:
Monday 6th December – Burswood Dome, Perth
Wednesday 8th December – Entertainment Centre, Adelaide
Saturday 11th December – Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne
Thursday 16th December – Entertainment Centre, Sydney
Sunday 19th December – Entertainment Centre, Brisbane
Details for an exclusive fan club pre-sale are available through Gorillaz.com and all other tickets go on sale Friday 6th August at 9am.
