Gorillaz Make Live Return
At Coachella …

Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s group come to London’s Roundhouse later this month with one of two gigs set to be streamed live by MTV.
The band ran through tracks from all three of their albums with a new production of animation, graphics and films to compliment the music.
For the first time Damon was front of stage for a show by the cartoon band and was joined by former members of The Clash- Mick Jones (on guitar) and Paul Simonon (on bass).
Other guests who appeared during the headline slot included Bobby Womack and De La Soul. However some artists could not travel to take part because of cancelled flights.
Reviews of the show from the US have been strong, with Entertainment Weekly writing: “Albarn sang with real soul and exhibited boundless energy, even jogging back and forth while carrying an actual, very large white flag during ‘White Flag.’ This, ladies and gentlemen, was pop spectacle done right.”
The LA Times said Gorillaz' gig was a “reminder of how Coachella, at its best, can knock down genre borders and respectfully connect the past to the present.”
