There is no doubt that Damon Albarn and company know how to give a show to their fans in Latin America.

As we had already mentioned a few days ago, Gorillaz began their world tour 2022 in several Latin American countries for the promotion of its Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timezan album that the virtual band released in October 2020 and which they have barely performed live.
