Coren Posted January 20, 2010 Share Posted January 20, 2010 Their first album went platinum and their second album went double platinum. Feel Good Inc. is also a gold single. Four singles charted on the Hot 100 - Five singles on Top Alternative (one of which got to #1). Add to that an upcoming third album that will again put them in the spotlight and you easily have the second biggest name on the lineup. I hate to say it, but if they add another big name to replace a current headliner (which they've only done once in the festival's 10-year history) - it would be Muse that gets bumped down. I doubt it, as Muse will also be touring on a strong album, has good sales stateside and better sales than the Gorillaz internationally and overall has more material to pull from. Also keep in mind the band hasn't toured in like 5 years and hasn't proven it can sell that sort of event - Muse is on their second string of stateside arena tours (they were already doing an arena level tour in 2007) and sells out huge venues in England. I don't even know how the hell they're going to pull off Gorillaz - between it being an animated band and all the guest performances they have...
