Albarn speaks about Gorillaz special guests

27 May 2010

Chatting to Zane Lowe, the star said that almost all of the collaborators on their latest album ‘Plastic Beach’ are expected to perform.

Albarn
said: "It could be good, I just hope we can convince Lou Reed and he [can] grasp that it's a real privilege to get the chance to do it and then I mean, then we'd have a complete house really.  That really would be amazing.  ??“I'm excited and nervous I have to say, you know because we're quite a new band but when we played Coachella it was very magical and I think there's enough depth in the band […] there's a lot of experience there, so in it's way it's a quite a new band but quite an established band in it's parts.

"It's really a great privilege and we won't let anyone down."


That means fans can expect to see the likes of former-Clash members Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, Snoop Dogg, Mark E Smith from The Fall, Gruff Rhys, rappers Kano, Mos Def,De La Soul and Bashy as well as Hypnotic Brass Ensemble.

They join Muse and Stevie Wonder at the top of the bill with Orbital, Dizzee Rascal, The Flaming Lips, Pet Shop Boys and more to perform over the weekend as well.
