KXIP vs KKR Live Score

It's been 7 years since Gorillaz have done any sort of touring, so that's why today's announcement that the band is playing the Fox Theatre during a huge North American tour is so exciting.

Since 2000, Damon Albarn of Blur fame and illustrator Jamie Hewlett, best known for co-creating the comic book Tank Girl, have been shaping their own alternative rock/hip-hop/what-have-you act with Gorillaz. We're hoping that's a yes.

Following the band's own Demon Dayz Festival in the United Kingdom, they will cross the Atlantic to kick off North American shows in Chicago on July 8.

General tickets for the newly announced dates go on sale April 21st via the group's website.
