Gorillaz - Ian Blair
The start of the show was a bit different a Daffy duck cartoon, which was enjoyable but I was getting frustrated with excitement at this point as I could not wait to see what was waiting behind the screen. Plenty of rumours had circulated that there would be 3D Holograms and other wizardly gadgets, these were false. What did lay in wait were dozens of serious performers string section backing singers and choir more fitting for both the venue and the more grown up recognition the Gorillaz deserve. Durring the encore Damon looked like a kid in a sweet shop. Not many artists get given a budget such as this, so it was great to see it all on stage on not on rider lists back stage.
