Kicking off the fall concert season in style, Gorillaz brought out a highly impressive multitude of guests while showcasing incredible musicianship at its recent Inglewood, California headline performance. Musical guests throughout the evening included Schoolboy Q, Thundercat, Del The Funky Homosapien, Beck, Tame Impala, and De La Soul amongst others. 

After a catchy animated beginning, lead singer Damon Albarn and his mega-talented band and back-up singers took center stage at Kia Forum. It was clear that there was something magical in the air. With a rather simple stage production and a screen showing classic Gorillaz cartoons throughout the twenty-eight song performance, the evening kicked off with oldies but goodies “M1 A1” and “Last Living Souls.”

After seven songs, Gorillaz began to bring out A-list guests. Schoolboy Q made an appearance for the debut of his collaboration with Gorillaz “Pac-Man,” featured on the 2020 Gorillaz album Song Machine. From there the excitement grew as Beck took center stage to lay down his part on “The Valley Of The Pagans” off the same album release. From there, Thundercat then emerged for his collaboration Cracker Island, the title track from the forthcoming Gorillaz album release.
