Just over three weeks ago, Gorillaz announced a short tour of the United States that was going to take place in September. The band has now canceled the tour. In emails to prospective attendees, ticketing agents wrote:
Gorillaz were going to be joined by Kaytranada, Lil Yachty, and Remi Wolf on their tour. The group was going to perform in Los Angeles, Austin, Chicago, and Boston. In a new statement, Gorillaz said: “We are gutted not to be able to perform for you this year. We were really looking forward to it and we hope to get back to you again as soon as we can. We love our Gorillaz family and we can’t wait to see you again.”
Before announcing the tour, Gorillaz performed at Coachella in April. Across both weekends, Damon Albarn and the band were joined onstage by Bad Bunny, De La Soul, and more.
