On Stage with Gorillaz

On Stage with Gorillaz

Last Friday (March 24) Gorillaz showcased their new album, Humanz, at a secret gig at the London Printworks.  We're pleased to say Airline guitars are now being used by the band!

Lead guitarist Jeff Wooton and bassist Seye Adelekan are now happy Airline owners, and we spotted our gear on stage at the Gorillaz gig in London.

Wooton is a respected guitarist who's been collaborating with Damon Albarn for the past few years, and besides Gorillaz, Albarn's solo album and Africa Express, has also played with Liam Gallagher's Beady Eye, Massic Attack, Brian Eno and others.

He got an Airline 59 3P in white as Gorillaz were starting to rehearse for their 2017 live dates. Jeff liked it so much he also ordered a second one, the G. Love signature in Black & Blue.  

New airline guitar. 🙏🏻

As for Seye, he's also a very talented musician who's worked with top names such as Ellie Goulding, Emili Sande and Paloma Faith, before joining the ranks of Gorillaz. He got our Airline MAP bass in white just a few days ahead of the Printworks gig.

With a bass as gorgeous as this, we're sure we'll see Seye playing it a lot...

Thanks @eastwoodguitars for this gem. Looking forward to breaking it in #eastwoodguitars #humanz

Here's a few more pics from the Gorillaz gig at the London Printworks. And with the forthcoming Demon Dayz Festival date in June, and more gigs certainly in the works, you can be sure you'll see much more of Jeff and Seye playing their new Airline guitars  this year!
