Gorillaz Wrap 2010’s Best Tour in New Zealand
Damon Albarn bids an emotional farewell to this version of his all-star group, featuring the Clash's Mick Jones and Paul Simonon.
Well, this will certainly feed the legend.
Gorillaz staged the best tour of 2010 — and frontman Damon Albarn got emotional as the jaunt concluded Tuesday night in Auckland, New Zealand.
As Albarn and his massive crew, including ex-Clash members Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, Bobby Womack, Little Dragon, and the American Syrian Orchestra, closed out their 48-date world tour in support of Plastic Beach, the ex-Blur singer addressed the audience.
“I’m really trying to censor my sentimentality tonight,” he admitted. “For us, this is the last time… we all hope and pray on this stage, and [for] all the people that work with us, that we will get a chance to work together as a collective again. But we may never do that again.”
We hope and pray for that too. Gorillaz had a spectacular run in 2010 — they came alive at Coachella, proved they were bonafide arena rockers at their world tour kickoff in Montreal, and treated Madison Sqaure Garden to an epic set with guests like Mos Def and Lou Reed. Reports from across the globe only supported the inkling that, yes, Gorillaz ruled 2010.
