NYC Sellout/GES Competition (14/3)

From the offical Demon Days Live press release:

Confirmed to join Demon Days producer/Gorillaz co-creator Damon Albarn at press time are De La Soul, Ike Turner, Bootie Brown of the Pharcyde, Neneh Cherry, Happy Mondays' Shaun Ryder, UK rapper Roots Manuva, with others to be announced.

Fans.gorillaz.com can also happily confirm that Martina Topley-Bird will be appearing at the shows.

Demon Days Live In New York (1/3)

BREAKING NEWS:

Fresh off opening the 48th Annual Grammy Awards alongside Madonna and taking home the Pop Collaboration with Vocals award, GORILLAZ will now receive yet another Stateside honor: the U.S. production of the DEMON DAYS LIVE tribute concerts.

Confirmed for April 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 at Harlem's famed Apollo Theater, DEMON DAYS LIVE will feature the guest musicians from GORILLAZ' worldwide multi-million-seller Demon Days recreating "Feel Good Inc.," "DARE" and the album's other classics live onstage.

The previous UK staging of DEMON DAYS LIVE, which took place November 1st through 5th at the Manchester Opera House, sold out instantly and moved SPIN magazine to comment "the group is reinventing the way that artists stage concerts."

Confirmed guest performers joining Demon Days producer/Gorillaz collaborator Damon Albarn in bringing each and every track to life will include De La Soul, Ike Turner, Bootie Brown of the Pharcyde, Neneh Cherry, Happy Mondays' Shaun Ryder, UK rapper Roots Manuva, with others to be announced.

Tickets for DEMON DAYS LIVE will go on sale Friday March 10 at 11 a.m. EST through Ticketmaster.

DEMON DAYS LIVE is not to be confused with the unprecedented live holographic tour the Gorillaz team and animation house Passion Pictures are currently producing for 2007-2008. The live Gorillaz shows will be a unique cross between live performance and a theme park experience, with the band fully present onstage, rendered in 3 eye-popping dimensions. Crucially, the show will evolve over the life of the tour, like any live performance, will feature stellar guests from Demon Days, and will ultimately bring the unique visual identity created by Jamie Hewlett to a live audience.
