As reported by OTR last week, Gorillaz play Dublin’s O2 on September 22. Tickets at €59.80 a pop go on sale on Friday week (May 21). The press release refers to this as “Gorillaz Live Show to Ireland for First Time” which will come as news to those who saw the band at Dublin’s Olympia in June 2001.
