Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett's animated creation will be performing in London in summer 2021. Here's how to get tickets.

With the collection of tracks being released as an album titled Song Machine Season One last month, Gorillaz have announced European dates for 2021, which culminate in a huge gig at London's O2 Arena on 11 August 2021.
