The band play 'Demon Days' live for first time
A host of special guests performed live with Gorillaz last night (November 1) as they opened their five night residency in Manchester.
Neneh Cherry, De La Soul, Ike Turner, Roots Manuva, Martina Topley Bird and Shaun Ryder all appeared onstage at the Manchester Opera House as the band performed second album 'Demon Days' in its entirety.
The show blended live performance, 3-D animation and even a guest appearance from band members 2-D and Murdoch who appeared as live size puppets in one of the Royal boxes.
They caused mischief throughout, at one point showering fans with popcorn before leading the cheers for the band to return during the encore.
