It is no underestimation to say that the return of Gorillaz has been feverishly anticipated.

Last week saw the launch of Humanz, their first new studio album in 7 years, to widespread critical acclaim. Not only that, but tickets to their US live dates sold out in the blink of an eye this month, as did their headline show at the inaugural Demon Dayz Festival at Dreamland Margate this summer (less than 10 minutes, to be exact).

Now, following on from a secret London show in March – described by Time Out London as “Flat-out one of the greatest gigs we’ve seen in a whole heap of years’’ – the World’s Most Successful Virtual Act will hit the road across Europe this autumn. With their tour culminating in a return home to play Brighton, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London in November and December (dates below). And if recent history is anything to go by, these will go just as quickly.

The Humanz Tour will see the Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (guitar), Russel Hobbs (drums) and 2D (vocals) joined on stage by the Gorillaz live band – Damon Albarn Gabriel Wallace, Mike Smith, Jesse Hackett, Jeff Wootton, Karl Vanden Bossche, Seye Adelekan – as well as selected performers from the stellar roll call of Gorillaz’ family of featured artists.

Mon 27th November Brighton – Brighton Centre
Wed 29th November Glasgow – The SSE Hydro
Fri 1st December Manchester – Manchester Arena
Sat 2nd December Birmingham – Barclaycard Arena
Mon 4th December London – O2 Arena

Tickets go on general sale at 9.00am BST on Friday 5th May 2017 via gorillaz.com.
