On Thursday and Friday of this week, April 29 & 30, Gorillaz play their first live dates in London for almost 10 years, and MTV UK & Ireland has announced that it will broadcast a Gorillaz live performance from the concerts at the Roundhouse.
MTV will stream tracks from the new Gorillaz album ‘Plastic Beach’ live via MTV websites worldwide on April 30, and they will create programming to show on their channels in the UK and internationally. The programming will be shown as part of MTV’s World Stage franchise.
The two concerts sold out super fast, and with full production including animation, artwork and film by Jamie Hewlett, are set to be stunning shows. Murdoc from the band certainly can’t wait: “I am quite literally holding my breath until I walk out on stage at the Roundhouse,” he says. “It’s hosted some legendary gigs – The Clash, The Doors and my own personal favourite, The Greasy Truckers Party. With my deep, dark basslines poured all over them this gig is going to melt your brain. Watch out Goth girls of Camden – IT’S GOING TO BE LOUD!!!”
In the meantime here’s a reminder of the fantastic video for the first single from ‘Plastic Beach’, ‘Stylo’: http://www.youtube.com/parlophone?gl=GB&hl=en-GB#p/f/1/h9vAOzYz-Qs
