Last Sunday night, Gorillaz were in town for an epic show at the Target Center. With over 60 musicians including Paul Simonon and Mick Jones of The Clash, rappers De La Soul, and soul legend Bobby Womack alongside an eight-piece brass band and seven-piece string section all lead by Blur frontman Damon Albarn, the stage was packed. The collection of musicians were set against the animated backdrop of cartoonist by artist Jamie Hewlett and featured guest appearances from Snoop Dogg and Bruce Willis.

Host Mark Wheat sat down and chatted with Damon Albarn and Paul Simonon before the show. They talked about everything from how they were able to take the concept of Gorillaz on tour to their fashion statements.
