Just days after offering the entire world a glimpse of its live performance, Gorillaz has announced the first batch of dates for its much rumored forthcoming world tour.
Starting September 10th in Birmingham, England, the Damon Albarn-led, Mick Jones and Paul Simonon-featuring outfit will launch a five-date endeavor. Stops in Newcastle, Manchester, and London follow before the trek wraps up on September 22nd in Dublin, Ireland. Tickets go on sale on May 21st at 9am (BST).
As mentioned, the leg, which will be proceeded by appearances at the the Roskilde and Benicasim festivals this summer, is rumored to be the first part of an upcoming world tour set for this fall. Though an official announcement has yet to be made, Gorillaz manager Miles Leonard noted in March (via gorillaz-unofficial.com) that the band plans to soon embark on an extensive tour, most of which will come in the headlining variety. So, just sit tight, America. Dates are on the way.
