Gorillaz to play 5 big shows
in Manchester In what is shaping up to
be a warm-up to the later Manchester International
Festival, the collaboritave group Gorillaz
have announced a set of 5 consecutive live shows at
the Manchester Opera House in the U.K.
These will be a more straight-forward gigs than previous
Gorillaz shows, where the band played behind
a semi-transparent screen. This time around, the group
will perform as the actual members of the band, not
animated characters, not in hiding, but actually out
there, on the stage, for all to see. Some of the bands
offshoot collaborators will be there too, Like Roots
Manuva and Shaun Ryder of the Happy
Damon Albarn liked the choice of locating
the shows in Manchester rather than London,
saying Manchester is the centre of Britain.
Were only ever going to do this once, so it
makes sense to do it somewhere in the middle of the
country. London gets all the gigs. Its time
to do something a bit different and redress that balance.
The shows will take place on November 1st
5th at the Manchester Opera House.
