    Given that Gorillaz have worked with hundreds of collaborators over the last two decades, there’s always a good chance that a surprise guest or two will pop up during one of the band’s concerts. However, fans who attended Gorillaz’s show at Los Angeles’ Kia Forum on Friday were treated to an especially star-studded affair, as everyone from Beck to Tame Impala to Thundercat made cameos.

    Beck joined Gorillaz to perform “The Valley of the Pagans,” from 2020’s Song Machine: Season One, as well as the world premiere of “Possession Island,” from Gorillaz’s upcoming album, Cracker Island. Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and Thundercat also helped Gorillaz’s preview their next project, as they sat in for “New Gold” and “Cracker Island,” respectively.

    Other guests included ScHoolboy Q (“Pac Man,” another new song from Cracker Island), EarthGang (“Opium”), De La Soul (“Feel Good Inc.”), and Del the Funky Homosapien (“Feel Good Inc.) Check out the full 28-song setlist, as well as fan-captured footage of the concert, below.
