Depends what you mean Tom? What do you feel is missing? Appears to me like there is a more sensible, realistic approach this time i.e. you will get guest spots if the guests are physically nearby. Rather than trying to take 100 people on tour and making "20 quid" by the end of it as Damon memorably claimed. Taking festival spots is probably a far less risky strategy too? I think by the end of the tour (as currently slated) they will have done over 50 gigs, which is not bad, but yes I suppose still pretty shy of the 100 or so you would expect for an act of similar popularity during the course of an album "campaign" ("Phase" in Gorillaz-speak). In 2010 I think they probably played about 60 - 70? So there are perhaps more gigs yet to be announced?

Does anybody know if record cmpanies have any way of checking if a live show by an artist leads to an increase in record sales in the vicinity of the live show during the days following? It's common knowledge that if you get a BRITS nomination it leads to a spike in your UK record sales in January.

Tour seems pretty good going by the footage I've seen. Going to see them a couple of times in November/December. One wee gripe is what is the squealing all about with Damon? Noticed it on 19/2000. Shut the fuck up man, you sound like a dick!

Minor gripe. They sound great apart from that

I'm an eternal optimist and I'm still holding out hope for some Aussie gigs sometime this decade...

The Falls Festival lineup just got announced, and while there is no Gorillaz, there are Vince Staples and D.R.A.M... Do I dare get excited at the possibility of some Aussie gigs in the New Year?

Gorillaz are almost certainly going to be touring into 2018, so I bet there's a good chance! There are rumors that Gorillaz will be at SA Lollapalooza, and Damon apparently told a fan that he met whilst vacationing in Mexico that he'll be touring there in March with Gorillaz.

I wish I hadn't bought that lollapalooza ticket... I thought they would play the chilean version, but apparently as stated in several sites they will play a standalone gig

I'm not in the states, where'd you get that? :P

Apparently they're playing chile in march, so I bought lolla ticket thinking that would be the venue, turns out the month is indeed march, but different dates. Hence I need to sell that stupid ticket xD
