Last summer, Damon Albarn and his cartoon band threw a house music dance party on the shores of Lake Michigan when Gorillaz kicked off its North American tour in Chicago. A little more than a year later, the group has a new album, The Now Now, which functions as a solo record by animated Gorillaz frontman 2D. The group's latest electro-pop ballads don't quite live up to the cosmic funk that Albarn explored on Humanz, but the project's new arena show should be as thrilling as ever—expect sing-along renditions of "Clint Eastwood" and " Stylo" as well as apperances from a few special guests (Vince Staples, Jamie Principle and Del the Funky Homosapien showed up in Chicago last summer). Los Angeles neo-soul outfit the Internet open the show.
