The Gorillaz are coming to Tokyo this June: if you know them already you’ll be snapping up tickets and if you don’t, it’s time you got listening. Formed in 2001, this virtual act has been hailed as one of the most unique and iconic pop experiences in the world. Their self-titled first album was soon followed by Demon Days which included Grammy award-winning single Feel Good Inc and UK number 1 Dare, with Plastic Beach released in 2010. The Fall was released in 2011, recorded in hotel rooms across America during the Escape to Plastic Beach tour. Now, after 7 years of silence, Humanz offers a tour through hip-hop and R’n’B, pop and reggaeton, soul and rock and roll.Well known for crossing musical genres and creating incredible videos, the show is guaranteed to be more than your average gig.
There are three ticket types: Arena standing (12,000 yen) Stand S seated (12,000 yen) and Stand A seated (10,000). The doors open at 6pm and the performance is set to start at 7.30pm – while this seems early compared to gigs elsewhere, be there on time, as this is usually accurate and there aren’t always support acts.
