Gorillaz have announced that they will be playing at Manchester Arena, one of only five UK dates on their European tour.

The announcement comes a week after Gorillaz released their first new studio album in seven years, Humanz.

Humanz was released on 28 April on Parlophone Records and followed a huge month for the band who released five new tracks, launched a mixed reality app and scored the most successful debut in YouTube VR history with the Jamie Hewlett-directed 360° six-minute animated film ‘Saturnz Barz (Spirit House)’.

The Humanz Tour will see Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (guitar), Russel Hobbs (drums) and 2D (vocals) joined on stage at Manchester Arena by the Gorillaz live band – Damon Albarn, Gabriel Wallace, Mike Smith, Jesse Hackett, Jeff Wootton, Karl Vanden Bossche, Seye Adelekan – as well as selected performers from the stellar roll call of Gorillaz’ family of featured artists.
