The cartoon band are aiming to play six shows at the end of the year…

GORILLAZ have announced that they will be playing a number of live shows before the end of the year.

Band creator Damon Albarn revealed that the cartoon band will be playing six shows in one venue this coming winter due to the complexity of the show and the number of live guests involved.

He said:“(Things with the Gorillaz’ album) are going very well. We’re gonna play in Manchester for six nights, I think, at the Opera House. And the reason for that is that we wanted to play somewhere where we could be central because of all the mad collection of musicians and to get them in one place at one time is really difficult.”

Speaking to Xfm, Albarn added: “That’s how it’s ended up. And I think it’s in November.”
