Massive Attack bring on documentarian Adam Curtis for visuals on upcoming tour
A group known for the atmospheric tunes and their seminal 1998 album Mezzanine, Massive Attack announced an anniversary tour for the project at the end of 2018. With the North American leg of the tour starting this March, the duo have shared that documentary film-maker Adam Curtis will be working with them in creating new visuals for the tour.
Curtis has been an esteemed documentarian for decades, having made eye-opening films about the intersection of psychology, philosophy, and politics. However, the Mezzanine tour is not the first time that Curtis and Massive Attack have worked together. Collaborating on an eight-day film festival, Curtis’s film, The Plan, was screened for audiences with music from Massive Attack interspersed throughout. Describing the tour as a “deconstruction of the entire album” and “not a greatest hit show,” the duo seem to be gearing up for a show that is surprising as it is exciting.
