Update: N.E.R.D. to join Gorillaz on tour

on September 10, 2010, 12:00pm

Earlier in the year, rumors abounded that Del the Funky Homosapien wanted to tour with Gorillaz. While that grassroots movement unfortunately never materialized into “truth”, we do have some official news that N.E.R.D. will be playing with Damon Albarn and his merry band of cartoon characters.

According to Billionaire Boys Club (a website associated with N.E.R.D. frontman Pharrell Williams), the rap rock outfit will hook up with Gorillaz starting October 6th in Boston, MA and will then open every North American date (save the Montreal one) until the tour wraps up in Vancouver on November 3rd.

Update: Gorillaz have confirmed N.E.R.D. as tour openers. They have also revealed that Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Bashy, Little Dragon, De La Soul, Bobby Womack, Roses Gabor, Bootie Brown, Kano, and Miho Hatori (Los Angeles and NYC only) will be among the specials guests joining them on trek.

N.E.R.D. is also performing a one-off on October 9th at Illinois State University in Normal, IL.

This party just got mad funky, so go on and get your tickets for all shows at Ticketmaster.com
