Glastonbury 2010 was a sore one for Damon I expect, but since then he has really cracked how to present Gorillaz live...
wow - that was a good review!

Bloody hell that was good

This band is incredible... not many acts can pull off moving between the likes of Garage Palace, M1A1, Latin Simone, and Saturnz Barz all in the same gig

Good point! Gorillaz live are a versatile beast to behold. No wonder Damon's dedicated the past two years or so to them. It always sounds great, and Damon seems to have so much fun. Can't wait to see them in Brooklyn on Saturday! Anyone else from the forum gonna be there?

What a show!! I ended up being in the second row near the middle and it was such a good show. By far the best Gorillaz show that I’ve ever seen. (Saw them during the first Gorillaz tour and the Plastic Beach tour). I purchased the VIP ticket and was lucky enough to see 15 minutes of the sound check (which I must admit the limited time was disappointing) The soundchevk was stopped down versions of songs like Humility, Kansas, Andromeda, and Latin Simone. All of which were very good. My only complaint would be with the VIP experience. There were a lot of VIP ticket holders( maybe 100) so it didn’t really seem like you were getting something really rare. Still if I didn’t buy the VIP I wouldn’t have been let in early and wouldn’t have gotten 2nd row. I normally sneak my professional camera in to shows but had a bad feeling about it and didn’t. How I wish I did because I would have gotten such good shots. But then again I was so close to security they might have kicked me out.

Glad to hear Philly was great! They played Kansas there, no? I'm very jealous! Shame they didn't play it in Brooklyn, as that's my favorite song from The Now Now. And I am in the same boat - out of the three times I've seen Gorillaz now (the first two on the Humanz tour), the Brooklyn show was by FAR the best. The band was absolutely on fire, and it seemed like the past year and a half of touring has made this band a fine-tuned machine. Damon has to love playing with this band and being able to do massive shows in the US like blur could (sadly) never do on this scale.

I had GA tickets, but managed to get to the barrier nearly exactly in front of Damon! He seemed quite amused with my enthusiasm, ha. And he reached down and grabbed my hand during Fire Flies, and I was lucky enough that my waiting-in-line buddy happened to capture the moment! Not the best quality photo, but definitely the best quality moment.
