Gorillaz announce world tour; Agganis Oct. 6

If you're going to pony up the cash to see Gorillaz do their multi-media animation-meets-real-life thing on the big screen, perhaps there's no bigger screen around the city than the one at Agganis Arena. So while we're not sure if Damon Albarn and his crew of cartoons are arena-level big, it's still pretty cool that they're playing places like O2 in London and Toronto's Air Canada Centre. If that's how they roll, then frankly, we luck out having this at Agganis (as opposed to say, the TD Garden). Plus it's close to Allston.

The Gorillaz world tour hits the shores of Commonwealth Avenue in the heart of Boston University on Oct. 6, and tickets go on sale a month earlier at noon next Friday (Aug. 6). Live Nation is the gatekeeper here.

In addition to the tour news -- posted in full down below -- Gorillaz also unveiled a new iPhone game called "Escape To The Plastic Beach", which is also the name of the mega-tour, and set up their own channel on Hulu.com. Talk about covering all the bases. Here's the full run of shows, party-around-the-globe edition, with the iPhone teaser trailer down below:
