Gorillaz in Budapest on 13 November

Gorillaz are back for good: “Humanz”, their first new studio album in 7 years, was launched in April and received a widespread critical acclaim. What’s more, the 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 in 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, culminating in a return home to play in the UK in November and December.

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.

Humanz, the acclaimed new album from Gorillaz, was released on 28 April 2017 on Parlophone Records. This spring alone has seen a breathtaking amount of activity from the band – releasing 5 new tracks; scoring the most successful debut in YouTube VR history with the Jamie Hewlett-directed 360° six-minute animated film ‘Saturnz Barz (Spirit House)’; launching a mixed reality app; and enjoying another groundbreaking first when 2D and Murdoc joined Mistajam for their first ever real time interview, streamed live from London to fans around the world.

After the exclusive album launch event in June, organised by Telekom Electronic Beats, Gorillaz returns on November 13th to Budapest for their first ever big live show at the Budapest Arena! Tickets are available via www.livenation.hu and www.ticketpro.hu.
