Gorillaz On Tour (3/6)
Gorillaz go on tour from 6/6/6 (June 6 at 6pm) and will be embarking on a 40 date jaunt across America's radio stations, sometimes hitting several a day over the course of three weeks!
Here's what Murdoc had to say about the radio tour:
"Hey. It's not enough that we've just recorded and released the defining album of the century, now we've gotta go tell the world about it! So, for this reason we've decided to do a tour of radio stations right round the States. We're gonna play some live songs, maybe talk a little about the album, crack some jokes. A kind of... press junket. You know, doing a tour like this is a little like running for office, campaigning for the listener's vote. Although in this case I think it's a little er... like bringing the mountain to Mohammed. I mean, we've just released a CD with 15 fucking good reasons to vote Gorillaz, so if that ain't enough you're probably not the type of fan we should be after anyway. But, y'know, if you do need to be spoon-fed any further reasons, tune your radio in and if you're lucky you might just catch a dose of Gorillaz live in the studio."
Those dates in full:
June 6 - KNDD - Seattle
Finally, Gorillaz' friends Albarn & Hewlett will be making yet another appearance and you can see them on MTV2's Subterranean in the States this upcoming Sunday, June 5 at Midnight.
