Gorillaz to perform live set for Canal + , broadcast 4th December

camille writes:- "Apparently, Gorillaz is going to make a live appearence during the TV show la Musical on french channel Canal +. The concert is going to be recorded on the 24th of November while Gorillaz is playing in Paris and it seems it won't be opened to public but reserved to some lucky people with connections. I was hoping there would be a sort of competition with Sub Division! The show will be broadcast on the 4th of december at 20h45. I don't know if this will be available to everyone or if we will be able to see it online later since Canal + is a private channel and you must pay to watch some of the programs. Maybe at least, we will enjoy some extracts! There are not many informations on the webpage but here it is",: Link to Canalplus site on Gorillaz."

Tylerdurden also sends the news. One media source in France has claimed the show's presenter may join the Gorillaz characters, in animated form.

Gorillaz to play festivals next year, according to source

According to a source with connections to the band, Gorillaz will play further live dates next year, at festivals. No further information is available at this time but as ever, we'll bring you more as we hear it.

This information is in line with comments from Miles Leonard, UK label boss, around the time of the Plastic Beach album release, who said that the band wanted to play more of their own dates before possibly playing more festivals (although, as it happened, the band did go on to play festival dates in 2010 - Glastonbury, Roskilde, Benicassim, Coachella as regular festivals and also in Beirut as part of the Byblos International festival, though this is more of a concert series)
