Gorillaz are talked about enough on here to warrant a 2010 lobbying campaign in the Wish List section. If you think Gorillaz would be an amazing headliner here's your chance to let Goldenvoice know.

I know they would be unbeliavable. Please make it happen.

Gorillaz as headliners? Christ...let it go people, this is never happening. And even if they did play, the wouldn't be billed as the top band.

If it was something to the effect of Demon Days, a one time deal, then yes they could easily headline. Lets not get into the Killers/Jack Johnson talk, cause the Gorillaz easily blow those two out of the water. Not to mention a Gorillaz set would probably include some amazing colaborations.

YES GORILLAZ FOR 2010!!!

I'm sure if Gorillaz was ever booked, they would have an elaborate production and blow everyone's hats off and maybe even play last on whatever stage/tent they're in, but no way could they be top billed for this festival. I mean really, they've performed live how many times? Have they outsold acts such as the Killers? You think GV is gonna book them as an anchor and the main selling point for their biggest festival?...No way. They would get second or third billing maybe.

What about a double billed headliner. Like how Kraftwerk and Portishead were supposed to. So it be like Flaming Lips/Gorillaz both Saturday night or whatever night...

To think the average coachella goer is more of a fan of Jack Johnson and the Killers is kind of weird guys...

I agree menikmati (by the way i'm lovin your Coachella online voting tracker..awesome!)

GV wouldn't take the chance putting them up as a headliner, they would make a great sub-headliner though.. I would prefer Blur over Gorillaz, but would be very happy if I saw Gorillaz on the poster next year..

I think Gorillaz could easily headline. Demon Days sold a ton of copies, definitely more than any Bjork album has sold. Furthermore, they are an EXTREMELY rare get. GV booking them would be huge. Not to mention, Gorillaz are fucking awesome. I would be shocked to see them subheadline.

You are dead wrong. In fact, I'm baffled that you think Gorillaz can't headline coachella. Makes me question your judgment.

If JJ can be a headliner, then a LOT of acts can be headliners.

Gorillaz would be a much bigger headliner than JJ. I have never seen a smaller headliner crowd at coachella than for JJ.

P.S. Just to be clear, the only reason I know the crowd was small is b/c I happened to walk by the main stage area. Trust me, I wasn't in the main stage area to watch JJ.

The combined sales of Gorillaz and Demon Days had, by 2007, exceeded 15 million albums. I'm thinking HEADLINER! ...but screw it put them on the bottom, just please bring them to Coachella.

Slightly over 3 million combined sales in the United States to date. They're no slouches, but the 13 million copies sold in Australia/UK probably wouldn't equate to more than a few hundred tickets sold to overseas ticketbuyers.

That said, Gorillaz would be a huge draw. I really don't see it happening, this year, but it would nice.

Yeah Gorillaz are one of the few modern (00's) bands there isn't much of an argument against them headlining. Everyone you know, including your mother, can name one of their songs and most can name three. They would be huge and I would say probably my favorite/most memorable headliner (or any act) at Coachella. The anticipation would be maybe even bigger than Portishead in 08.

So anyway, sign me up for this.

Sorry, I am not giving up that easily. When the fuck else will any of us get a chance to see them? The music, dancing, lights, videos, and holograms would = the single greatest overall Coachella performance. While Blur would be good or even great, it just doesn't reek of EPIC like 'RILLAZ.

Do your ticket sales a favor and book the most popular band in the world, cause these confirms and rumors just aren't up to par this year... sorry. I wish more than anyone that they were.

clumsy342
11-06-2009, 06:25 PM
I must say that I find myself in support of this idea.

And on a semi-related note...

Remember what Paul T. said this year about The Killers and lack of new headliners?
He said something about how newer acts needing to emerge and prove that they are worthy of being a headlining act (totally paraphrasing). I think that was definitely the case with Coldplay, JJ, and The Killers. Sad, but true.

But if you take that same idea and apply it to other acts, I think we could EASILY see an act like Gorillaz headline. UNLESS, they are a SOLID sub-headliner like Portishead. Though, as far as I'm concerned Portishead fucking headlined that night.

I think that in time we could see acts like these headline Coachella:

Gorillaz
The White Stripes
The Strokes
The Arcade Fire
Daft Punk
Modest Mouse
Queens of the Stone Age
Muse
Kings of Leon
The Flaming Lips

Seriously, who else would beat them to it?
Mind you, this is not a wishlist. It's my take on the state of potential future Coachella headliners.

damon seems to have collaborated with the horrors, mark e smith, some dude from the sugarcubes, and the hypnotic brass ensemble. there's also been hints about bobby womack, lou reed, barry gibb, and omar souleyman. supposedly some of it has been recorded in the middle east, and their website is re-launching in february.

I'm sure like any other band they ask their tour manager, or some other rep at the record company. the decision in the end -- or so it seems -- is made between Damon and Jamie.

???

yes they were. it was known that work had begun on the new gorillaz album a few months before the blur reunion was announced. damon later played three demos from it on radio one in january. there was a thread here full of people who were convinced there was a good chance of them playing coachella. then the blur announcement came (in december was it?) and a lot of hope was lost. goldenvoice may have already extended the offer and been declined by the time the blur reunion was announced.

I've been sleeping on Gorillaz and recently decided to take in their catalog. Watched Demon Days live and rented Bananaz. I suggest you all do the same. I'd love to see them at Coachella but no way would they headline but they could easily take a Kraftwerk or Portishead slot.

whether they are headliner material or not...im kind of torn. it could go either way. another solid album would solidify it though. but headliner status also depends on who is available that year, so if its a weak year, you see artists like JJ getting headliner, when if they played another year, they would be 2nd tier.

Absolutely. It would have to be a something really huge like Bowie or Radiohead to headline over Gorillaz. And if they pulled 2/3 I doubt they would put them on the same day. I think its a terrible long shot, but I would support it. I saw Good the Bad and the Queen at 2007 and they were easily one of the top acts for me that year. Great album too.

But since you seem to be the expert on the G's, ill trust you w/ a few more questions.

what have their tours been like?

for a while i thought they just had these huge holligram type stage shows, but then I saw Demon Days and thats when i truely became a fan. Are there shows mainly projections and these live performances are just super rare?

Gorillaz to headline Coachella 2010 (?)
[posted by 2-J on Sunday 13 December 2009|16:33pm]
Gorillaz-Unoffcial.com gets sent stories on a daily basis from all over the world. Some are repeat information, some are bogus or cannot be substantiated, some are good enough to be featured and end up in the news. I hope our track record and reliability speaks for itself. This story comes from a source I consider reliable but not directly from someone close to the band. Officially, it should be considered rumour until further notice but it was just too exciting not to share.

Our source reports that Gorillaz have been signed to headline Coachella 2010. Coachella is a long-running music festival held each year in Indio, California. Coachella 2010 will take place from April 16-18 2010.

Our source writes:- "Gorillaz have been signed to headline Coachella 2010... Damon flew back last night from New York last night after some promotion work on PB [Plastic Beach]. But only one venue confirmed! Some problem with Lou Reed not committing to live dates. Dont know the full story on that one though. But thats not just it, its getting increasingly more expensive to put on a Gorillaz show." According to our source no other Gorillaz live dates have been officially booked at this time.

their tv performances are vastly different from the actual live shows. they can afford to drop $100,000 on one song for a tv show. they can't afford to do that for 12-20 odd songs for a full live show.

the tv performances for the s/t album were done with large screens -- one for each character, and one for other general animations. the only performance I recall is of clint eastwood. one at the brit awards with phi life cypher. another on mtv asia with some mandarin rapper. both appear on the celebrity takedown dvd.

their s/t tour had everyone playing behind a white screen, so you saw only their silhouettes. there was also I think a screen where they showed some animations. those same animations are available on their celebrity takedown dvd. nothing fancy, pretty cheap looking to me actually. they toured europe and the US. in europe they had phi life cypher on rap duties. in the US they had jamal grey on rap duties. each produced their own lyrics for clint eastwood. the girl who does noodle's voice in the cartoon shorts filled in for miho hatori. the only special collaboration that happened on that tour was that d-12 showed up to the new york show to do 911 for the encore.

the demon days 'tour' consisted of five nights in manchester followed by five nights in new york months later. they played demon days start to finish, with an encore of latine simone and hong kong. they had almost all the collaborators performaing, except for doom who was pre-recorded and appeared on the video screen, and dennis hopper. the exception to this being the final NY show, where hopper performed with them. the band themselves were all in front of colored screens, so again you saw only their silhouettes. they had a video screen above with some decent animations. the band was accompanied by a live string section.

there were two demon days songs performed for tv, each repeated once. feel good inc was done at a european mtv award show and the grammy's. de la soul performed live, along with holograms of the characters. (technically not holograms, actually). they've never used those holograms elsewhere. dirty harry was performed at the brit awards and for some reason on jonathan ross' tv show. for that they had booty brown and a full children's choir. and I think a string section? I forget. the visuals were done on four humongous screens and were awesome.

to date neither del nor miho have ever performed live with gorillaz.

the tv performences and demon days tour are available on various dvds (celebrity takedown, slow boat to hades, demon days live). there is no official footage of the s/t tour. I don't know if there is even anything on youtube since that pre-dated the days that everyone had cameras capable of video. I didn't see that tour but judging from the photos don't think we are missing much.

yeah gorillaz sound great live. there's a bunch of performances recorded live in studio done for what they called the 'demon detour'. a bunch of US radio stations had specials to promote demon days. each featured 4 songs from those studio sessions (so it sounded as if the band were playing live at the radio station), and the character voices recorded custom chatter for each station between songs. they sound quite distinct from the original versions. and awesome.

I don't understand how it is that the Gorillaz are worthy of headlining. They have 2 albums, a couple hits that play on the radio every now and then, and a unique live show. I'm assuming if their live show wasn't so hyped for being "sooo expensive" by everyone, and if it wasn't rare to see them, they wouldn't have a chance to headline. Huge bands like Sonic Youth, Portishead, and Morrissey have played recent years, but did not headline. But I guess since Gorillaz do their cartoon gimmick that qualifies them for headliners?

Gorillaz to headline Coachella 2010 (?)
[posted by 2-J on Sunday 13 December 2009|16:33pm]
Gorillaz-Unoffcial.com gets sent stories on a daily basis from all over the world. Some are repeat information, some are bogus or cannot be substantiated, some are good enough to be featured and end up in the news. I hope our track record and reliability speaks for itself. This story comes from a source I consider reliable but not directly from someone close to the band. Officially, it should be considered rumour until further notice but it was just too exciting not to share.

Our source reports that Gorillaz have been signed to headline Coachella 2010. Coachella is a long-running music festival held each year in Indio, California. Coachella 2010 will take place from April 16-18 2010.

Our source writes:- "Gorillaz have been signed to headline Coachella 2010... Damon flew back last night from New York last night after some promotion work on PB [Plastic Beach]. But only one venue confirmed! Some problem with Lou Reed not committing to live dates. Dont know the full story on that one though. But thats not just it, its getting increasingly more expensive to put on a Gorillaz show." According to our source no other Gorillaz live dates have been officially booked at this time.

Thats it. Im going to wear my Gorillaz shirt all day everyday until the lineup is announced.

Basically, the guy said that he has no interest in entertaining an audience and is baffled that people would get angry if it's not really him onstage. According to Doom, the "lip-synch" performances are better entertainment for him, and he prefers to be among the crowd while an impersonator performs than actually please a paying audience.

People like Madvillany a lot on these boards, and I really can't comprehend why. I think Rhinestone Cowboy has one of the freshest beats, but overall, the album is not very impressive. To be fair though, I haven't heard it in over a year or so, but I'll have to give it another listen tonight.

I have a feeling that a Gorillaz performance would not live up to the hype they have on this board.

Just a feeling. It wouldn't suck, but it wouldn't be as awesome as people are putting it out to be.

It's not a worthy performance if drugs are required to make it seem good.

You're right about that, but drugs can make a great performance, even greater. Seeing Prince whilst tripping was mind-blowing.

If they do play maybe they will utilize that holographic technology that never happened for the tour that never happened.

If this did happen at Coachella it could be epic.

They only did that for one tour I think. I hope they don't do it again. I'd rather see the actual musicians as opposed to a hologram.

Ardentbiscuit
12-14-2009, 08:14 AM
I don't think the holographic tour ever happened because it was too technically difficult and expensive.

When I saw them they just had a screen with a projected movie and they played behind it.

If the did happen, a hallucinogenic would compliment this show quite nicely. Especially if Massive Attack preceded them.

I wonder how long it would take to set up for a Gorillaz set. An hour of downtime on the main while something significant is on the Outdoor or Sahara?

shakermaker113
12-14-2009, 08:45 AM
they never used the holograms on tour. they did it for feel good inc on tv twice, that's it. they talked about a tour but decided not to go through with it. they said it was too expensive and too great a chance of things going wrong. apparently they were lucky that nothing went wrong on the tv performances. also due to the nature of the "holograms" they actually have to keep the volume down, which kinda makes the whole concert deal impossible.

My thoughts exactly. Decision-making...being stuck there just for a good spot while something good like, say, Sunny Day or even Deftones take to the Outdoor. :nono

It wouldn't be either act. Sunny Day wouldn't be as big as previous acts in such a slot and Deftones...don't see them ever playing.

You are insane to think Gorillaz would not headline. First off, they have sold 73926329573279 albums. Second, the rarity alone makes it an incredibly special act. Combine these together and you have an undebatable headliner. Gorillaz has sold more album Bjork, I am sure. Probably more than Portishead and Jack Johnson too.

Even after reading that their album is supposed to be released march 2010, it still seems like a longshot. If you have not seen the Demon Days live concert you should start there. I don't know how you couldn't be stoked on seeing them after watching that.
