Gorillaz

“If anyone tells you the Gorillaz show at MSG on Friday was anything less than incredible, they’re lying to you. Some bands you wish to see in their earlier stages, but now is the time to see Gorillaz. They have never been better, and there’s no guarantee they can top this. This is their prime time, and the brilliance of their collaborative musical geniuses was amplified in concert. Not only did we see Damon Albarn in flesh – a personal idol – but he was accompanied by the incredible artists that were featured on Plastic Beach: Mos Def, Lou Reed, Bobby Womack, De La Soul, Little Dragon, members of The Clash, etc. Co-creator of Gorillaz, visual man Jamie Hewlett also peeped out from backstage to say hello – to whom Damon planted a big ol’ kiss. The entire show was almost too epic to be true… You know when all your favorite superheroes get together and form a league? That is what this was. And this ‘league’ leader, frontman Damon Albarn, was clearly having the time of his life. He was constantly dancing, jumping around, running around the stage, hugging people – never keeping still unless he was playing the piano. Reminded us of his good old Blur days, sigh. They played almost all of their latest album and included old time favorites like “Clint Eastwood” and “Feel Good Inc.”” [morningafterpills]

After launching their tour in Boston, Gorillaz and N.E.R.D. played the giant NYC room that is Madison Square Garden on Friday night (10/8). As the quote above points out, there were many special guests in the house, some of whom are on the whole tour and some who just stopped by for the New York show (like Jay-Z though he was just there to watch).
