Gorillaz to play Dubai? Story continues

Yesterday we reported the breaking news story that several websites were reporting that 'Gorillaz' would play a show in Dubai on March 19, as part of a mini festival called 'Elements', an event that is part of / coincides with the event 'Royal Drive' a supercar show and driving event in Dubai taking place over 18, 19 and 20 March. (see the previous item here)

Then we speculated that it would probably be Gorillaz Sound System appearing as opposed to Gorillaz themselves. It seems some of the local press shared our sense of disbelief, but the organizers have kept up an air of mystery about the event.

According to The National ( article here ) Maher al Yaqoub, the operations director of Luce Che Vola, would not disclose how the band would appear. “It will be a big surprise,” he said.

According to 7 Days ( article here ) when asked how the gig will be performed, whether it’ll be cartoon characters live on stage or digitally projected images, events manager Ali Taheri said: “It’s a surprise for Dubai but what I can tell you is we’ll be breaking some records in the UAE.”

We'll bring you more information on this story as we get it.
