Last week, Gorillaz announced the release of their incredibly innovative, upcoming compilation album, Song Machine: Season One – Strange Timez, which features a stacked list of high-profile collaborators, including The Cure’s Robert Smith, Joy Division/New Order bassist Peter Hook, Beck, Elton John and many more. Today, they have announced they also be returning to the live stage for the first time in two years.  

Gorillaz will be performing the Song Machine album in its entirety, along with other popular cuts from their two-decade catalogue at two ticketed shows on December 12th and 13th, which will be broadcast globally across various time zones. The classic Jamie Hewlett animated lineup, including guitarist Noodle, bassist Murdoc Niccals, drummer Russel and frontman 2D, will be joined by Damon Albarn and the full Gorillaz live band, plus a cast of to-be-announced guest performers – considering the collaborators involved in the project, this could be huge! See here for more info – check out the trailer below. 


A press says: “‘Song Machine’ is the ongoing and ever-evolving process which sees Gorillaz release new episodes throughout 2020, recorded and captured live in Kong Studios and beyond, and made available as and when they are ready.”

Director at LIVENow, Marc Watson adds: “We are really proud to work alongside Gorillaz to create something truly special for fans all around the world. ‘SONG MACHINE LIVE’ will raise the bar on what to expect from live-streamed concerts.”
