Gorillaz amazed a 1000 strong crowd in Syria as the first major UK band to ever play there. In an event that Damon Albarn described as a “wonderful experience”.
The electro-rock band was joined on stage by Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, De La Soul and Bobby Womack.
The set-list comprised songs from their latest album ‘Plastic Beach’ and a few songs from their past album ‘Demon Days’.
Playing in Damascus, the capital of Syria, meant a lot to Albarn who feels as if the time he spent in the country has really opened his mind.
The monumental show is now available to listen to online along with an introduction to the concert from one of the computerised characters themselves.
Truly a world first, the concert was very important to the band , the country and the people of Syria.
