GORILLAZ - DEMON DAYS LIVE
Putting on a live concert featuring the music of a cartoon band is ambitious enough.
Planning a full performance of Demon Days in its entirety and bringing together the
star musicians who appeared on the album should be almost impossible! However,
that's exactly what happened at the Manchester Opera House. With Gorillaz members
Murdoc and 2D watching from the Royal Box, Damon Albarn and his band in silhouette
amidst massive coloured light boxes, were joined by the Demon Days guest stars plus
a choir, a string orchestra and entire class of school children for this amazing live event.
As a stunning backdrop of animated art played behind them, the album was performed
from start to finish with appearances from collaborators including De La Soul, Ike Turner,
Neneh Cherry and Shaun Ryder. Impossible or not, the Demon Days visual extravaganza,
filmed in HD, delivers a unique theatrical experience.
