Gorillaz kicked off a string of small venue gigs in England on Sunday, March 21. A day before they took the stage, member Murdoc posted a message, saying "It's wonderful that our super Gorillaz tunes are providing work for this collection of scallywags and reprobates. These gigs have got my stamp of approval - which is a little pentagram that i brand on each of the players. Painful, but they're not allowed on stage without it..."

"And those set to receive such treatment are: Mike Smith - Keyboards; Jesse Hackett - Keyboards; Paul Simonon - Bass; Cass Browne - Drums; Damon Albarn - Guitar, Piano, Vocals; Gabriel Wallace - Drums; Geoff Wotton - Guitar; Mick Jones - Rhythm Guitar."
