Currently on tour promoting their newest album The Now Now, Gorillaz will mix new songs with oldones  when they rock the Bell Centre on October 8.

Hits like “Feel Good Inc,” “Clint Eastwood,” and “DARE,” coupled with their massive projections of animated videos at live shows, have made them a very popular band since the turn of the century.

Time: Doors at 6:30 pm, show at 7:30 pm
Price: $58.50 – $122.75, available online

Montreal Canadiens vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (October 12)
