Gorillaz Are Coming to Zappos Theatre in Vegas!

It’s been 25 years since four folks in the UK joined forces to create a fictional, two-dimensional, “virtual” band that in the year 2000, the world would become enthralled by.

Since the drop of their self-titled debut album, members 2-D, Noodle, Murdoc Niccals, and Russel Hobbs, have held the world of anyone enjoys music that toes the line between hip-hop, electronic, and even some alt-rock in the palm of their hand.

After a brief hiatus, the band has churned out album after album, continuing their hold on the world.

Whether you know them because of the first hit-single “Clint Eastwood”, or you just got into them by listening to the new album Cracker Island, it is easy to say that they stick with you.

On April 12th, the band will be making a stop in Vegas at the Zappos Theatre inside of Planet Hollywood. There is never a bad seat in the house and tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster here.

Stephanie " Stephy " Muzio (formerly Hayward) - Public Relations / Writer/ Photographer and Co-Founder of ZRockR Magazine Co-host of ZRockR Magazine LIVE! Stephy was raised on rock and roll. Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
