Virtual band Gorillaz is singer 2D, bassist Murdoc Niccals, guitarist Noodle and drummer Russel Hobbs. Created by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, their acclaimed eponymous debut album was released in 2001.

The BRIT and Grammy Award winning band’s subsequent albums are Demon Days (2005), Plastic Beach (2010), The Fall (2011), Humanz (2017), The Now Now (2018) and Song Machine – Season One: Strange Timez (2020).

A truly global phenomenon, Gorillaz have achieved success in entirely ground-breaking and unique ways, touring the world from San Diego to Syria, Montevideo to Manchester and winning numerous awards including the coveted Jim Henson Creativity Honour. The band are recognised by The Guinness Book Of World Records as the planet’s Most Successful Virtual Act.

Gorillaz made an emotional return to the live stage last month with two sold out shows at London’s O2 Arena. The performance on 10 August, to thank and recognise NHS frontline workers, saw the band debut all three new tracks from their new EP ‘Meanwhile’, the band’s joyous homage to the iconic Notting Hill Carnival. The 2000 Carnival signalled the start of something big for Gorillaz with their first ever outing, a performance of ‘Clint Eastwood’ at the Middle Row Records sound system in Meanwhile Gardens, W10. ‘Meanwhile’ is three tracks in celebration of that moment and the unique and inclusive spirit of Carnival.

And now the Carnival is heading down under! Don’t miss Gorillaz’ first Australian dates in over a decade!
