You know, lots of people are complaining about the Gorillaz this year. Give them a break! They were headlining and only had 90 min to play. They were probably going to end with Dare, but Shaun Ryder couldn't make it because of the volcano.
Personally, I thought it was the greatest show of my life, but that's also because I'm a die-hard Gorillaz fan and i was in the front row.
They broke character, so what? The point of the Gorillaz is not the 'characters' but it's the MUSIC that they want to elaborate on. Plus, for the Gorillaz to be revealed on stage for the first time was pretty cool to me.
Where I'm trying to get at is, they're not about the performance or interactions but the Music. I know he did not interact, or talk with the audience, which also bummed me out a little, but its not where they're trying to get out.
They did great. It was not boring. And, they are phenomenal musicians.
