Gorillaz have announced The Getaway, a series of four U.S. shows slated for this Fall, with support from KAYTRANADA, Lil Yachty and Remi Wolf. The Getaway will be the final run of U.S. dates in support of the band’s recently released smash album Cracker Island, and will kick off on Sunday, September 10 at BMO Stadium in Los Angeles, with stops at Q2 Stadium in Austin on Wednesday, September 13 and Credit 1 Union Amphitheatre in Chicago on September 16, before wrapping up on Tuesday, September 19 at Boston’s Fenway Park.
The Fall dates find 2D, Murdoc, Noodle and Russel on the run in the U.S., having packed into their van following Gorillaz’ recent back-to-back Coachella performances – the first of which inspired The Los Angeles Times to proclaim “Gorillaz rule Day 1,” the second described by Uproxx as “electrifying” – and their highly successful 2022 World Tour led by Damon Albarn and the 14-piece live band, aided and abetted by a varying cast of guest performers.
