Gorillaz Song Machine Live From Kong is a full scale production blending exciting real time performance with Jamie Hewlett’s unique animation. The Gorillaz 14-piece band, led by Damon Albarn with 2D, Noodle, Murdoc Niccals, and Russel Hobbs, will also be joined by some very special guests.
Song Machine Live From Kong features songs from Gorillaz’ acclaimed new album Song Machine Season One: Strange Timez, plus other Gorillaz favourites. You can watch from anywhere in the world and there is a show time to suit you. Taking us into the basement of Kong Studios, this is an immersive, one-of-a-kind, Gorillaz HQ lock-in.
