The Escape to Plastic Beach Tour was a concert tour by the British alternative rock virtual band Gorillaz. The tour was in support of their third studio album Plastic Beach. It was notably the band's first world tour in its decade-spanning history. The group's fourth album The Fall was recorded during the American leg of the tour and released in late December 2010 to fan club members, and physically in April 2011.[1][2]

Opening acts[edit]


The Escape to Plastic Beach Tour also featured new music videos and visuals on the big screen in the background while band members played up front. Visuals accompanied such songs as "Broken", "Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach", "Dirty Harry", "Empire Ants", "Last Living Souls", "White Flag" and many others alongside the original music videos for the group's previous songs.

The poster used to promote the tour was highly influenced by the theatrical poster for the 1969 Sam Peckinpah western, The Wild Bunch.
