Review: Gorillaz at The O2 Arena, London

Now I admit it. I am a massive Gorillaz fan. I have previously written about the animated band with some reverence from seeing them live and you could probably guess this time will be no different. The Gorillaz have always been there with new music throughout the different eras of my life, as they have evolved so have I personally and because of this they are always a band I feel drawn too. (pun not intended)

Mos Def came out with the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble for “Sweepstakes” for the first time in 7 years, Shaun Ryder & Roses Gabor came out for “DARE” and finally Noel Gallagher was on stage to sing “We Got The Power” with Jehnny Beth. Phew! That Damon Albarn does know some people it is safe to say.

“Clint Eastwood” was played in its purest form with Del from tape so people could sing along before closing on a nice calm note with “Don’t Get Lost in Heaven/Demon Days” which is always a site to behold from a production and musical standpoint.

If anyone has not been to a Gorillaz gig yet I would highly recommend it, with them breaking the boundaries of musical genres with every album there is always something for someone to enjoy whether they enjoy rock, rap, dance or pop. It’s not just the auditory senses being pleasured but also the visual senses too with video packages and artwork in the background of every song. Gorillaz does cover it all and after this performance I can not wait to see what they do next.
