Beck, Kevin Parker, Thundercat & more joined Gorillaz in LA (video, setlist) ++ hear Beck’s Neil Young cover

Having announced their new album Cracker Island, Gorillaz are on their first North American tour in five years. The album is stacked with guests, including Stevie Nicks, Bad Bunny, Beck, Tame Impala, Thundercat, Bootie Brown, and Adeleye Omotayoand, and the band's recent Los Angeles show at Kia Forum on Friday night (9/23) was also a guest-filled affair.

Beck joined Gorillaz for "The Valley of the Pagans" off 2020's Song Machine: Season One, and later in the set they debuted his feature from Cracker Island, "Possession Island." Kevin Parker of Tame Impala and Thundercat each joined in for their already-released features, "New Gold" and title track "Cracker Island," respectively. Gorillaz also played "Pac Man" from the upcoming album, featuring an appearance by Schoolboy Q. Openers Earthgang also came back out for "Opium," also from Song Machine: Season One.

The 28-song set also featured De La Soul and Del the Funky Homosapien on "Feel Good Inc." Del had appeared with Gorillaz in his native San Francisco last week to perform "Rock The House," their 2001 collab, live for the first time. They played the song again at Kia Forum, paired with "Clint Eastwood," to close the encore. Another regular collaborator, Bootie Brown (The Pharcyde), joined the band on "Dirty Harry," "New Gold," and "Stylo." Sweetie Irie and Fatoumata Diawara also made appearances during the show. Check out videos and the full setlist, plus Gorillaz's remaining tour dates, below.

In addition to playing with Gorillaz over the weekend, Beck shared a cover of Neil Young's "Old Man" during Sunday Night Football on NBC. The cover was first featured in an NBC Sports promo of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs game Sunday night, and pays tribute to Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes, both of whom won Super Bowls at 24. Listen to Beck's take on "Old Man" below.
