Gorillaz - the world's most famous virtual group
Gorillaz, the brainchild of Blur's Damon Albarn and comic book artist Jamie Hewlett, are now one of the iconic bands of the 21st century. This is your chance to see Gorillaz members 2-D (the cute but spacy singer/keyboardist), Murdoc Niccals (the spooky bassist who is possibly the brains behind the group), Noodle (a ten-year-old guitar virtuosa and martial arts master) and Russel Hobbs (a drummer who is not shy of occasionally rising up and performing some zombie-style rapping) take you on a musical journey accompanied by cinematic music and breathtaking visuals.

Gorillaz album next was 2010's Plastic Beach which, again, was very well-received and on the subsequent Gorillaz tour, ex-Clash members Paul Simonon and Mick Jones both performed garnering lots of media attention. During the Plastic Beach tour, Albarn wrote and recorded a new album The Fall on his iPad.

The great thing about Gorillaz is it allows Damon Albarn, one of the most skilful and hard-working musicians of his generation, to record various different genres of music without alienating Blur's fanbase.

"Feel Good Inc" and "Saturnz Barz" feature prominently rap, "On Melancholy Hill" feels like genuine pop, whereas "Dare" is unmistakeably dancey.
