Fans may have to wait a decade before they can see Gorillaz play live again.
When asked how quickly the Gorillaz will return after their current tour ends, Albarn replied: “Well, we’re going to have to even it out. Since there wasn’t much time between these recent two records it’s probably going to be another 10 years.”
The Britpop legend added that a full-blown hologram tour featuring the cartoon members of the Gorillaz is “something we’ve been trying to do since day one.”
“We still haven’t found a system that doesn’t compromise the music,” he said. “That’s the dream — to be able to play onstage with holograms. I just hope I’m a functioning organism when it happens.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Albarn spoke of trying to secure Grace Jones for one of the live shows.
He said: “We’ve got close on a couple of occasions, but still to this day we’ve been unsuccessful.”
In August, Albarn revealed that he has another Gorillaz record in the works. “[B]ut I know I’m not gonna be allowed to even think about recording or putting it out this year,” he said in a new interview with the Austrian radio station Radio FM4.
The release will be the first follow up to the band’s 2007 self-titled debut.
Gorillaz wrap up their current tour at Sports Palace / Palacio De Los Deportes in Mexico City on October 24.
