Gorillaz in HK Gorillaz Are Coming For You

[03/09/10] 

If you'd said to music's who's who a decade ago that one of the biggest bands to hit the world's charts would be made up of fictional cartoon characters, who would star in their own music video clips (along with cameos by the likes of Bruce Willis), combine musical inspirations from alternative rock, hip hop, pop music and electronica, and would win a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the Most Successful Virtual Band to date, they'd laugh you right out of the pub.

But that's exactly what happened to the group created by Damon Albarn of Blur and Brit cartoonist Jamie Hewlett. Gorillaz sold over seven million copies of their debut album in 2001 and have had a raft of number ones since – and now nature's noblest beasts are gracing our fair city with their Escape to Plastic Beach Tour, Gorillaz's first world tour and first concert in Asia.

Playing classics as well as new tracks from their third studio album Plastic Beach, which was released in March, Honkies can expect a fusion of reggae, punk, and even Cuban music, played by Gorillaz members 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle and Russel Hobbs.

About as far from Nat Geo as you can get.
