Gorillaz virtual members to 'speak' live

A live Q&A event will be conducted between fans and the virtual band’s members.

Get ready for the online event of the century – a live audience with me, Murdoc Niccals


Murdoc and 2D, two of the virtual members of the virtual band Gorillaz, are set to take part in a live Q&A for the first time.

Damon Albarn of the band Blur formed Gorillaz with comic artist Jamie Hewlett in 1998, with the band’s four animated members – 2D (lead vocals, keyboards), Murdoc Niccals (bass guitar and vocals), Noodle (guitar, keyboards and vocals) and Russel Hobbs (drums and percussion) – serving as its digital avatars.

As preparation for the new upcoming Gorillaz album, Humanz, Murdoc and 2D will be answering questions from fans live from London on Friday. The Q&A event will be hosted by BBC Radio 1 DJ MistaJam. It will be livestream online via the Electronic Beats YouTube channel.

Murdoc says of the news: “Get ready for the online event of the century – a live audience with me, Murdoc Niccals. Thanks to our comrades over at Electronic Beats, you can watch me and 2D live on the sofa and ask anything you want. Or just tell me how much you love me. But keep it clean, yeah?
