Massive Attack has announced the newly rescheduled US tour dates for their Mezzanine anniversary tour.
The tour, which has seen the band play sold out shows in the UK already, comes in celebration of the 21st anniversary of the band’s iconic 1998 album Mezzanine.
However, Massive Attack were forced to abruptly postpone the original dates due to illness: “The band are deeply sorry for any inconvenience and are looking forward to bringing the show to the USA and Canada soon,” they previously said in a statement.

Having already announced plans to reissue the album on limited edition vinyl, the band will head on tour to be what Robert Del Naja described as “a one-off piece of work; our own personalised nostalgia nightmare head trip”
A tour which they have titled ‘Mezzanine XX1’ will be “a totally new audio/visual production featuring Elizabeth Fraser and designed by Robert Del Naja with collaborators to be announced at a later date,” the band said in a press release. To keep things fresh, the show will be a “custom audio reconstructed from the original samples and influences.”
