Gorillaz Plan to Leave Holograms Behind on Upcoming Tour
Gorillaz have always packed their performances with 3-D effects, full of animated characters and holograms. But this year, when they visit the U.S. (although the dates haven’t yet been determined), Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett plan to leave the high-tech stuff at home and make things a bit more human.
Apparently, a revelation happened when the guys performed with Madonna at the Grammys and their sound was far too quiet because using more bass would have disrupted the delicate film screens. “And at [that] point, I just thought, ‘You know what? Sometimes, just keep it simple,’” Albarn told MTV.
So while touring to promote their third album, Plastic Beach, Gorillaz fans can plan to encounter a much more realistic version of the musicians. Check back with the guys via their website for those upcoming tour dates.
