Gorillaz have confirmed today that the band will be hitting North America for their first tour of the continent in seven years! Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, the masterminds behind our favorite animated group, announced the dates where their iconic characters Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, Russel Hobbs and 2D will appear throughout the U.S. and Canada.
The Humanz Tour will kick off right in our backyard at Northerly Island here in Chicago on July 8 and will continue to cities like Toronto, Boston, Quebec City, New York, and Seattle before finishing up at III Points Festival in Miami, FL the weekend of October 13-15. General on-sale for tickets starts this Friday, April 21 at Gorillaz.com
Gorillaz will be joined onstage by any number of dope artists that are featured on the new album, which gives us all the possibility that the likes of Jehnny Beth (Savages), Danny Brown, Benjamin Clementine, De La Soul, D.R.A.M., Peven Everett, Anthony Hamilton, Grace Jones, Zebra Katz, Kelela, Mavis Staples, Vince Staples, Popcaan, Pusha T, Jamie Principle and Kali Uchis, among others can make an appearance on the forthcoming Humanz Tour.
