N.E.R.D. are joining the Gorillaz entourage. Pharrell and co. will open for the Damon Albarn-fronted band on their Escape to Plastic Beach North American tour. The tour already promises guest appearances from ‘Plastic Beach’ contributors De La Soul, Little Dragon and Bobby Womack. The Clash‘s Mick Jones and Paul Simonon are also touring as part of the Gorillaz Plastic Beach band.
