People couldn't help but leave the Comerica Theatre last night with giant smiles on their faces. That's because it's pretty difficult not to have fun at a concert where the "band" is animated, and their antics are displayed on-stage above a live performing orchestra. Thank the Gorillaz for that. The alternative group, which blends hip-hop with pop and rock, brought out strings and a Syrian ensemble to complement singer Damon Albarn and his extensive guest list, including Bobby Womack and De La Soul. An energetic N.E.R.D. got the crowd warmed up for Gorillaz' nearly 2-hour set, and it was an eclectic, memorable night. Here is what some fans had to say about the show. (And read our review here.)
