    Massive Attack will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their landmark album, Mezzanine, by embarking on a tour in 2019. Beginning in March, the legendary trip-hop outfit will play a string of shows in North America, marking their first performances on this side of the Atlantic in five years.

    The 13-date North American jaunt kicks off in Boston on March 11th. Notable shows include a March 15th stop at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, a visit to the Detroit Masonic Temple on the 22nd, and a two-night stint at the Hollywood Palladium at the end of the month.

    Update – March 8th: Massive Attack have postponed their US tour “due to illness.”

    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.


    Check out Massive Attack’s full tour schedule below. Tickets go on sale next Friday, November 9th. You can also get tickets here. As previously reported, the band will also play a number of shows in the UK and Europe beginning in January.

    Along with the tour, Massive Attack have announced a reissue of the album, both in a traditional package and as DNA encoded in a spray can.
