|Gorillaz will bring their "Escape to Plastic Beach" world tour to Phoenix's Dodge Theater this October|
As we inch closer towards the inevitable shit-show that will be Wednesday, July 29, Phoenix music fans can take solace in the fact that cartoon supergroup Gorillaz
have booked an October date at the Dodge Theatre.
The "Escape to Plastic Beach
" world tour will hit 17 U.S. destinations -- starting in Wallingford, CT and winding its way through to Seattle.
Phoenix was lucky enough to be among one of the destinations on the "Plastic Beach" tour, among other stops in Europe, North America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand -- something that is rarely said about the city unless we're talking some sort of '80s rock/metal reunion tour.
So boycott away, artists on The Sound Strike
list, because Phoenix is going to be just fine. This Gorillaz date
helps prove that not all Phoenicians are evil, racist bigots. As well, most
people who live in Phoenix actually enjoy seeing a concert or two from
their favorite bands and don't need to be unnecessarily penalized for an
awful, racist atrocity that a governor they most likely didn't vote for
decided needed to be law.
Good on you, Damon Albarn,
good on you. You could have skipped Arizona completely in-between dates
in Denver and Los Angeles as most bands do, but you didn't.
will play the Dodge Theatre on Tuesday, October 26. Tickets will go on
sale to the public Friday, August 6, at -- if I have to guess, since
LiveNation has no info on this show as of yet.
