Gorillaz LA area rehearsal date - some more details and ways to get tickets

Gorillaz previously announced on 22 March in an official mailout that they would be playing a rehearsal show in the LA area before their 18 April show in Coachella ( see previous Gorillaz-Unofficial news item here).

Official information will be released this week (probably later today or tomorrow) about the show, and two affiliates are already running stories on it (see below).

The details are as follows: the show will take place on Friday 16th April in the LA area (however the location of the show is still secret and almost certainly will be until the last minute). The rehearsal will feature the full Gorillaz band as seen on the UK Gorillaz rehearsal dates but also the following guests: Bashy, De La Soul, Kano, Little Dragon, Mos Def, Gruff Rhys, Shaun Ryder and Bobby Womack.

Ways to get tickets (if further contests are announced we will post them immediately):-
