Gorillaz announced they will play four final shows across the United States to finish off their U.S. Cracker Island tour run. KAYTRANDA, Lil Yachty, and Remi Wolf will be supporting acts.
The Cracker Island album released in February of this year, was the follow-up to 2020’s Song Machine. The latest entry in the Gorillaz’ discography features Stevie Nicks, Bad Bunny, Beck, Thundercat and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, Pharcyde’s Bootie Brown, and Adeleye Omotayo. While new and long-term fans alike love the songs by the core group (including frontman Damon Albarn), the new collaborations are just as beloved.
For “The Getaway Shows,” Los Angeles, Austin, Chicago, and Boston are the four locations in which you can see the British super-group. All four shows are being held at stadiums and amphitheaters, including the Redsox’s Fenway Park.
Per the band’s publicists, “[the Getaway Shows] will find 2D, Murdoc, Noodle, and Russel on the run in the U.S., having packed into their van following Gorillaz’ recent back-to-back Coachella performances.”
As for the shows’ supporting artists, there is a slew of new music to be stoked about hearing live. On May 14th, Remi Wolf released a new single “Prescription“. On May 19th, KAYTRANDA released a collab album with rapper Aminé, fittingly titled KAYTRAMINÉ. Just this January, Lil Yachty released his latest album Let’s Start Here. Though the string of shows is short, each one is sure to be more of a musical event than a simple concert.
