Gorillaz have announced two concert dates - their first proper gigs in London since 2001.
The animated group will perform at the Roundhouse on April 29 and 30 in support of their new album Plastic Beach.
A message on their website said: "For those not lucky enough to catch the intimate fan club shows, Plastic Beach will touch down in London on April 29 and 30 as the music of Gorillaz is performed over two nights at London's Roundhouse.
"The shows will feature the Gorillaz band plus guests including Bashy, De La Soul, Kano, Little Dragon, Mos Def, National Orchestra For Arabic Music, Gruff Rhys, Shaun Ryder, and Bobby Womack."
Songs will be taken from right across Gorillaz' back catalogue, and the post said the shows "will include full Gorillaz production, featuring video animation, artwork and film".
The virtual band, created by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, unveiled Plastic Beach earlier this month.
