Manchester MEN Arena Gorillaz show rumour - September 12th

Theysaywellletssee sends the news that a ticket agency website is offering to sell tickets for a Gorillaz show at Manchester's MEN Arena on September 12.

There have been several comments from Damon indicating that there will be a Gorillaz tour in the Autumn and in one case 'September' was mentioned (the tour is likely to be an arena tour, in the UK at least - Damon also mentioned that there would 'probably' be dates at the O2 arena in London).

You can check out the listing on the ticket agency website here. However please note: fans are advised NOT to order tickets from this website for several reasons. Firstly, the date has not been officially confirmed. Secondly, there is no way this agency even has tickets yet. Thirdly, it may well be possible to get tickets in the general sale or presale much cheaper than the prices there. Gorillaz-Unofficial is linking to this site solely to show there is a rumour that there will be a Gorillaz show at the MEN Arena at that date.

Gorillaz Sub Division and online store launched

oskar j was the first to send the news that the Gorillaz Sub Division (the new version of Gorillaz' online fanclub, as previewed a couple of days ago) has now launched (and is open to new membership - all G-Club members are now automatically Gorillaz Sub Division members), and with it the Gorillaz online store (which returns after a long absence).

Along with the previously-announced things for Gorillaz Sub Division, members can also a download a 'digital poster' in the member's area, which can be used to make high quality posters of up to A3 size.

There are also lots of new items in the Gorillaz Shop. Check it out here. Alongside just about all the official clothing released this phase (with a couple of exceptions, e.g. the rehearsal tour exclusive shirt and the pink writing Plastic Beach shirt) you will see 3 new Gorillaz lithographs and new badge, postcard and patch sets.

The store is currently only open for the UK and Europe however. USA and the rest of the world orders will be taken soon, according to a notice on the store site.

UPDATE:- nintendoboy writes in:- " stumbled upon the fanfire/Live Nation store which is selling the same merch, but in USD (and cheaper as well)!:- here on fanfire.com"
