It has been given Gorillaz working with hundreds of collaborators over the past two decades, there’s always a good chance a surprise guest or two will pop up during one of the band’s concerts. However, fans attending Gorillaz’ show at Los Angeles’ Kia Forum on Friday were treated to a more star-studded affair, as everyone from Beck to Tame Impala to Thundercat made cameos.
Beck joins Gorillaz to perform “The Valley of the Pagans,” from 2020’s Song Machine: Season Oneas well as the world premiere of “Possession Island,” from Gorillaz’s upcoming album, Cracker Island is an island. Kevin Barker and Tame Impala’s Thundercat also helped Gorillaz envision their next project, as they sat down for the “New Gold” and “Cracker Island,” each one.
Other guests include ScHoolboy Q (“Pac Man,” another new song from the Cracker Island is an 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 footage captured at fan the concert, below.
