ovjeff was the first to send the news that the NME spoke to Damon last night at the NME awards about possible Gorillaz live shows this year.

Damon said:- "At the moment I wouldn't want to play Glastonbury or something because I'd be setting myself a very high benchmark but we're definitely going to play some big gigs in the UK or in England or in London this year. The band is sounding really good, I'm really excited."

Later that evening The Clash's Mick Jones later told NME that he and bandmate Paul Simonon would be involved in the band.
