Massive Attack to embark on ‘Mezzanine’ 20th anniversary tour through Europe and North America

Twenty years post-Mezzanine, Massive Attack‘s discerning third album, the trip-hop troop decided to not only reissue the album in all its seductive glory, but to also launch a full-scale tour in accordance with the retrospective release.

The multi-continental tour will trace vital European markets through its opening leg in the first half of 2019, with the North American tour schedule, which the group announced will include stops in Chicago, New York, Boston, and Detroit, coming Nov 2. In a recent release, Massive Attack shared that the tour is slated to be entirely individual to the album anniversary, with “custom audio reconstructed from the original samples and influences.”

As with so many of their previous performances, Massive Attack will be bringing a series of collaborative support with them on the road, including Liz Fraser of the Cocteau Twins, who appeared on Mezzanine-housed “Teardrop.” The Bristol outfit previously announced they’ll be consigning the reissue to an audio-DNA-encoded can of spray paint, giving greater weight to the widespread theorizing that Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja, who carries a longstanding history as a graffiti-ist, is indeed the notoriously elusive street-artist, Banksy.
