Massive Attack’s Mezzanine celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2018. Already, the trip-hop legends have announced a reissue of the classic album, both in a traditional package and as DNA encoded in a spray can. Now, they’ve revealed plans for an anniversary tour to take place in North America and Europe in 2019.
Described by Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja as band’s “own personalised nostalgia nightmare head trip,” the forthcoming jaunt will consist of a one-off audiovisual production that has been “reconstructed from the original samples and influences.” A number of Massive Attack collaborators will join the band on the road, including “Teardrop” singer Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins.
Dates for the European leg were announced today and can be seen listed out below. The North American leg will be detailed on November 2nd, but the band has already revealed they’ll be visiting Washington, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, Saint Paul, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego as part of their travels. Update – November 2nd: You can find dates for Massive Attack’s North American tour here.
