Gorillaz will tour the release of album Plastic Beach but are vowing to keep it simple.
Speaking with MTV, band creator Damon Albarn confirmed the "Stylo" hit-makers would tour the new album.
After almost a decade of attempting to bring the band's cartoon alter-egos to life on stage via holograms, the band have conceded it just won't work. Albarn explained:
"We opened the Grammys — on television it looked great — but we had an invisible film pulled across our stage, and you project onto that, and put smoke behind it.
"So we couldn't play with any bass or any sound, because it would vibrate [the film] so it was really quiet... So we open the Grammys, but no one could hear us, in this huge, great arena, and we were crestfallen at that moment.
"And then, our song stops, and she [Madonna] appears on the other side of the stage, with her inflated-ABBA riff, at full volume, and the place goes insane. And at [that] point, I just thought, 'You know what? Sometimes, just keep it simple.'"
While tour dates are yet to be announced, Albarn and co. will tour Plastic Beach later in 2010.
