I'm going to be out of town for the weekend in just a bit and probably won't be able to post my normal daily stuff as a result. So I've decided to make this a very big post by sharing all the pictures from the Gorillaz & N.E.R.D. show I was at a couple days ago. I hope you all have a good weekend. The rest of the pictures are after the jump.
N.E.R.D. opened up with a very intense performance. Pharrell is quite a showman. He even stopped and struck a pose for me mid-song.
The crowd went nuts when the animated Murdoc popped up on the big screen. The "story" was that the real Gorillaz (2-D, Murdoc & Noodle) were stuck back stage trying to get out and perform while the "warm up band" was playing. The rest of the show was a great combination of the actual performance and the visuals shown on the screen.
|Unfortunately Snoop wasn't actually there (I wouldn't be either just for one song), but he was in spirit.|
|Damon Albarn was incredible. He was constantly engaging the crowd and had tons of energy.|
|Bobby fuckin' Womack!|
|Bobby Womack AND Bruce Willis?! Hell yeah.|
|Looks a bit like Hugh Laurie on bass, doesn't it?|
Overall this show now ranks as #1 on my list, moving Radiohead down to #2 - which is saying a lot. Being just two rows from the stage added a lot to the excitement. I felt honored to have water thrown on me by Damon.
The Gorillaz are still on tour, so if you are a fan I highly suggest seeing if they are visiting a nearby city and buying tickets. I hope everyone has a good weekend. See you soon.
