Gorillaz 'Escape To Plastic Beach' World Tour

PLASTIC BEACH SAILING THROUGH EUROPE, NORTH AMERICA, ASIA, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND

Gorillaz are set to take their Plastic Beach around the world later this year. The band have today confirmed they will play 20 shows in North America (including their first ever show at Madison Square Garden) 10 nights across Europe including 2 nights at London’s 02 Arena before heading to Asia and down under for 7 shows.

Gorillaz fanclub, the Sub Division, will benefit from pre-sale ahead of tickets going on general sale.

This is Gorillaz first world tour. The previously announced tour will now become part of the "Escape to Plastic Beach" World Tour, with the live shows moving from September into November to include an additional show at the Brighton Centre and Antwerp Lotto.

The new show at Brighton Centre on 18th November is set to go on general sale at 9:00am on Friday 30th July and the show at Antwerp Lotto goes on sale July 31st . All other UK & Europe shows are on sale now. Full details are available at gorillaz.com/tour-dates

Gorillaz have played in front of more than 400,000 fans headlining Coachella, Glastonbury, Roskilde in Denmark and Benicassim Festival in Spain. They of course also played private rehearsals for some lucky Sub-Divisioners! This week Gorillaz become the first major Western band to play in Syria when they play the ancient Citadel in Damascus on July 25th following a sold out show at the Byblos Festival in Beirut.

Due to new tour routing the Gorillaz live shows at Glasgow SECC on September 8th, Newcastle Metro Arena on September 11th and Milan Forum on November 19th are to be cancelled. The Gorillaz “Escape to Plastic Beach” World Tour will now sail into Dublin on the 11th November, Manchester on the 12th, London on the 14th and 16th, Birmingham on the 17th, with a last show in Brighton on the 18th before heading to Berlin (21st), Paris (23rd), Antwerp (25th) and then “down under”.

Existing bookings for rescheduled dates remain valid. Your ticket vendor will be in touch to confirm your booking. UK ticket holders affected by a rescheduled/cancelled date can obtain a refund or be re-ticketed for an alternative UK date and venue. Ticket holders unable to make a rescheduled European date or affected by a cancelled date will obtain a refund.

2DFruitti I know people are mad about them canceling the show...but I'm happy about it hahahah :D Because that means people all over the world get to see'em. They do owe everybody an apology though. I think as an apology they should FINALLY update the game. And free action figures would be sweet. Seriously though... April-ish happened a LOOOONNG time ago

SiberianMau So I was thinking, the show cancelling has made people pretty upset, and many have spent money that they can't get back. I know that this in no way makes up for the loss, but maybe, as recompense alongside the refunds and Stylo cars, they could issue an apology and give us the key in the Plastic Beach game? Mm?
