N.E.R.D to support on North American tour (UPDATE:- guests including Miho Hatori / Murdoc chat)

According to a post on Star Trak Entertainment here, N.E.R.D will be supporting Gorillaz on all dates of their North American tour.

This differs from the support on the UK tour, where support will come from De La Soul and Little Dragon.

UPDATE 19:25 BST:- The full list of guests for the North American leg of the tour has been revealed on . The full list is:- Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Bashy, Little Dragon, De La Soul, Bobby Womack, Roses Gabor, Bootie Brown, Kano and Miho Hatori (Miho to appear in Los Angeles and NYC only). The news posting on also says "please note some artists will not be appearing in all cities" - it's not clear if that refers to just to the fact that Miho will only appear at two dates, or if other artists may also vary throughout the tour.

Well done to the fans who got behind the 'get Miho on the tour' campaign!
