A tour supporting their new album ‘Plastic Beach’ means that the Camden Roundhouse will play host to Damon & Co.’s 2D extravaganza on the 29th and 30th of April, in a show featuring Damon Albarn, The Clash’s Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, Mos Def, Gruff Rhys, Shaun Ryder, Bobby Womack, The National Orchestra For Arabic Music, Bashy, De La Soul, Kano and Little Dragon, along with new animation and artwork by Jamie Hewlett. The gigs will be the band’s first full UK performance since Demon Days Live at the Manchester Opera House in 2005.
Tickets are £45, but don’t grab your credit card just yet, they’re not on sale to the public until 9am on Friday 26th March, although you can sign up to be a Roundhouse member and get hold of some early bird tix. They will also be available at this time from www.livenation.co.uk and www.roundhouse.org.uk (all tickets subject to a booking fee). Subscribers to the Gorillaz fan club will have access to an exclusive limited ticket pre sale from 7.30am on Tuesday [ www.gorillaz.com/g-club – membership from £24.99].
You can also play a strange little point-and-click adventure game on the band’s website by clicking here. It’s clunky, but who knows, you might win something?
