Damon Albarn has said that the current Gorillaz line-up may never play together again, with the band having now finished their world tour.

Speaking at the final gig of the Escape To Plastic Beach tour, in Auckland's Vector Arena last night (December 21), Albarn paid tribute to his fellow bandmates including ex-Clash members Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, Bobby Womack, Little Dragon and Daley.

"I'm really trying to censor my sentimentality tonight," he said to the crowd.

He added: "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."

Although the tour has now finished, Gorillaz will release new album 'The Fall' to fanclub members on Christmas Day, with a physical release set to follow in 2011.
