CONTEST – Gorillaz @ The Air Canada Centre – October 14, 2010
What: Animated and largely unclassifiable musical project helmed by Damon Albarn formerly/currently of Blur and with a pedigree of participants that includes The Clash, Snoop Dogg and Talking Heads.
Why: Having given up waiting for the technology that would allow them to perform in their wholly animated guises, the band will head out to North America this Fall in fleshy form in support of their third album Plastic Beach.
When: Thursday, October 14, 2010
Where: The Air Canada Centre in Toronto
Who else: Pharrell Williams and compatriots in N.E.R.D. will open things up.
How: Tickets for the show range from $49.50 to $95 plus fees in advance, but courtesy of Livenation, I’ve got three pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want Gorillaz” in the subject line and your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, October 7.
What else: The National Post talks to Damon Albarn about the challenges of playing live with a virtual band
