Today the Festival d'été de Québec—Quebec City Summer Festival, in English—announced that Gorillaz, The Who, Nick Jonas, Death from Above 1979 and more are joining an already super-stacked lineup including Metallica, Muse, Kendrick Lamar, Pink, Backstreet Boys, Migos, Melissa Etheridge. Set at the Plains of Abraham, the fest goes down over the course of 11 days from July 6 - 16. Gorillaz play Saturday, July 15.
According to Songkick and Setlist.fm, Gorillaz' last North American gig was on Nov. 3, 2010 with De La Soul and N.E.R.D. in Vancouver, British Columbia. Their last U.S. show was the day before, in Seattle. That'll put this summer's Quebec gig at just under the seven-years-gone mark.
Gorillaz dropped four new comeback songs/innovative visuals last week featuring D.R.A.M., Vince Staples, Popcaan and Jehnny Beth of Savages. On June 10 they'll host their inaugural Demon Dayz Festival in Margate, England. Humanz, their fourth album and their first in six years, arrives April 28 and features a true slew of famous names.
